    I put this up because a firefly fan on another page doesn't like the tune, he finds it out of place.

    I love it. I think it sets the tone for the show perfectly. An orchestral piece or some pop-ish tune just wouldn't fit at all.

    Anyone who watched 'Once More With Feeling', should have instantly connected with the Firefly tune, it's pure Joss.

    Yeah, it was totally the perfect song for the opening credits.

    The theme song for Firefly is a classic and, like at least one of the other posters, I can't watch an episode without singing along to it. I'm also convinced that having a shot of Jack Daniels before doing so helps loosen up the vocal chords.Tongue outHell, I sing along to Jayne's song, too. Compare and contrast with the aural diarrhoea that is the theme song to "Star Trek: Enterprise" and it's even more irritating that the latter show made it to 4 seasons, whilst poor old Firefly didn't even get all of its one-and-only season's episodes transmitted before cancellation. Of course, with Fox, quality means inevitable cancellation...Frown

    I like to pretend that never happened.

    Along with Enterprise and Red Dwarf is one of the 3 top opening tunes.

    The theme song was the only part of Enterprise I didn't like. Well, that and the final episode.

    It's one of my favourites opening theme songs ever, I just love it and like others have already said, it fits into the show perfectly.
