Because I specialize in “nerd” and in celebration of last Thursday’s season premiere of the sixth season of “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," I whipped up a ringtone of the show's all-too-catchy intro music that is available for download below. But before you download you must always learn, so here is what Wikipedia has on Heinz Kiessling's “Temptation Sensation:”
The theme song is a piece of production music called “Temptation Sensation” by German composer Heinz Kiessling. Additionally, Kiessling’s work (“On Your Bike” and “Blue Blood”) can also be heard during various scene transitions throughout the show, along with other composers and pieces such as Christopher Movick (“Off Boradway”), Joe Brook (“Moonbeam Kiss”) and Karl Grell (“Honey Bunch”). Many of the tracks heard in the series have been taken from Cafe Romantique, an album of easy listening production music collected by Extreme Music, the production music library unit of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Independent record label, Fervor Records has also contributed music to the show. Songs from The Jack Gray Orchestra’s album, Easy Listening Symph-O-Nette (“Take A Letter Miss Jones”, “Golly Gee Whiz”, and “Not a Care in the World”) and the John Costello III release Giants of Jazz (“Birdcage”, “Cotton Club” and “Quintessential”) are heard in several episodes. The soundtrack, featuring most of the music heard on the show was released on September 1, 2010.
Now, on to the stealing sharing:
