07/11/16 – Dave Porter – Preacher Title Theme Song

Kind of weird one today, being a theme song for such a new show, but there’s a lot to like here. As a fan of the original comic book I really like this show, despite the massive changes they’ve made to the characters, story and background. The main thing they got right was the dark sense of humor and the overall feel of the comic. A big part of that is set with this theme, which often smacks you in the face after a cold open with it’s ominous humming and harmonica sounds. It sets the mood very well for a dark but ultimately fun show.

Dave Porter is an incredibly gifted composer. Having done the score to Breaking Bad, and currently doing Better Call Saul, he has an incredible talent of setting the tone and adding layers of depth to what are already thematically rich and involved stories, without being distracting.

My rating: of the song: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ of the show: Also ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Last time I heard it: Last night, watching episode 7 of the series.
