Ever listen to a song and immediately think of Airwolf? I'm not talking about the great Airwolf soundtracks, but just regular music. One song in particular that has always struck me was a tune by Mike and the Mechanics, called "Silent Running". Even in the beginning of the song, you can hear what sounds like the Lady spinning up her ominous turbines. Even the lyrics suggest involvement by the Firm.

Any of the songs in 'BIRDS OF PARADISE', but especially 'Money For Nothing'.

They play it on the radio around Christmas time; it must be the mixers that trips me UP, I think its jingle bells.! Soldiers away from home during the holiday season - 'mail call'...

I remember 1982, I was desperately in love with the Knight Rider series. Now, this will probably sound strange, but "One Night in Bangkok" by Murray Head always made me think of KR because his voice in that song resembled William Daniels voice for KITT.

Don't laugh....for me, it's 'Big John'.

In the 80's there was a Domestos advert with a twist on the 'Big John' lyrics to 'Big Dom'. At the time I was convinced JMV was singing the song, with reference to Dom Santini as 'Big Bad Dom'. Now, whenever I hear the tune, it always reminds me. Below is a link to the advert on youtube - it's first time I have seen it in what must be 25 odd years - yep, I still reckon it's JMV singing about Dom!! wink

You wanna know the truth Hawk...the crazy rott'n truth.....I KNOW WHERE ST.JOHN IS!!!

For me its "Obsession" by Animotion, which was on the Birds of Paradise episode. Just love the quick and catchy bass and explosive synths. Just reminds me of the bad guy's hulking black huey and his hold-load of painted hookers!


Well, two out of three isn't bad!

I'm with you on that, plus 'Money For Nothing'; again same episode.

BIRDS OF PARADISE influenced me a lot in the mid-to-late eighties from music to fashion.

Birds of Paradise was a worthy end to Airwolf. I just hated the theme music at the climax when Hawke was up against the bad guy: it was like Airwolf meets a dodgy electric organ on Brighton pier! You needn't bother reproducing that one.

We won't be. It's shite.

Sly and everybody of note had left before the last 4. The guys who were left were just filling the can to get the hell out of that hellhole.

A depressing and unhappy Set by then

Well you put it much better than me!
The less said about the "Tracks" episode, the better. Just what were they thinking? Mad rural hermit armed with a bow and arrow vs. Airwolf, yeah...
Just can't wait for your latest Airwolf CDs. I find myself listening to Jan Michal Szulew's EP so often! (in particular track 2 but they're all amazing)

Pretty much all 4 of those Main Themes EP tracks have been updated for AET so will be slightly different.

When Mark Knopfler did the theme tune to Auf Wiedershen Pet in 2002, we could hear the words "money for nothing and your chicks for free" emanating from Wyman's walkman in the desert of Arizona. As Gordon Tootoosis was in these scenes of Auf Wiedersehen Pet with Jimmy Nail and others, it all reminded me of Airwolf. As Gordon was in Season 4 episodes like Salvage and Welcome to Paradise. In Auf Wiedershen Pet he spoke the lines "we need a chopper". At this point I hoped that Airwolf would appear even if it was to be recyclyed stock footage!

Auf Wiedersehen Pet was decidedly poor after the first two series. Just don't update Boys from the Blackstuff! Hands off Yosser Hughes! If he was in the pilot seat of Airwolf I just don't know how Hawke and Dom would have removed him! His head's so tough it'd take more than a bullpup missile to dent it.

Wasn't Mike and the Mechanics Silent Running featured in an Airwolf episode (original run). They might have replaced it in the DVD for rights issues. I think it was the one with the lions and hawk is running or Hawks Run, can't remember.

Was in 'LITTLE WOLF' and all the songs on the show were cover versions to get around later rights issues that the likes of 'MIAMI VICE' had a nightmare with decades later.

Well that'd be me unfortunately. Not up on the Facebook/Twitter malarky though I do delve into your neck of the woods occasionally for more news. I used to be a webmaster of a popular forum many moons ago.... sigh. Glad those days are gone. Too much hard work!!


Well, two out of three isn't bad!

Wow, I've been away for a while! Nice to be back! Another song that puts Airwolf in my mind is Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence".
