Funny Or Die Remakes Reading Rainbow Theme Song; Dark, Yet Delightful
With the success on Kickstarter for Burton’s mobile reboot of Reading Rainbow, raising $2 million in two days, it’s only logical to wonder what this new show’s theme song would look like. Luckily, Funny or Die came by to deliver their version of the new theme, which sounds like it was sung by the same person who did the original. The results are a little dark at times but still so very awesome because…well, like I said before, Geordi is awesome!
Levar Burton has been a true gem of awesome for as long as I have been alive. Whether it’s making reading awesome in Reading Rainbow or making cybernetic visor glasses awesome in Star Trek (even though they’re awesome all on their own because they’re cybernetic VISOR GLASSES!).
Am I the only person who now wants to see a literary based Highlander-style series where warriors sword fight, fly around and cause massive destruction while quoting Jane Austen and James Joyce? I know I probably am. But still…that would rock so much!
