The Enterprise Theme.
The main title sequence is very important for establishing a
show's tone and identity. With limited changes over the course of
the series, it can become highly memorable and sometimes takes on a
life of its own. Star Trek has had some of the most memorable,
thanks in part to the music. When Enterprise rolled around,
however, many fans were outraged when they heard "Where My Heart
Will Take Me." The theme for the new series was a rock ballad? Had
lyrics? Was originally written for the 1998 film Patch Adams?
In this episode of Melodic Treks, host Brandon-Shea Mutala takes
a look at the song originally title "Faith of the Heart," the
careers of the song's writer, Dianne Warren, and vocalist, tenor
Russell Watson. In addition to the two versions used for
Enterprise, we showcase three others that have been released, as
well as Dennis McCarthy's vocal-free variant, "Archer's Theme."
