The Tune is Named: The "Friday Night Lights" Theme

The Tune is Named: The "Friday Night Lights" Theme

BuzzSugar readers get things done! I asked you last week to help me figure out what the "Friday Night Lights" theme song is, and you totally came through.

NoBillPosting gave me the tip that the song might be by W.G. Snuffy Walden, who also did the themes for "The West Wing" and "My So-Called Life," among others. So, I emailed Walden, and he confirmed that he and Bennett Salvay, who works with him on the show, composed the song.

So it's not Explosions in the Sky, as I'd guessed, but their moody instrumental rock does help set the tone for many episodes of the show, which has also featured songs by Iron & Wine, Camera Obscura, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Spoon and other great bands. Hey NBC: Do I smell a soundtrack?
