Hi Gibs, see you found our forum here is what I think
I think the Angel theme is quite like the Buffy theme except a bit more James Bond ish! Also didn’t realise you had watched Angel, seen as you are on season three!!! Might get some spoilers from it as now you know that he left poor Buffy to go to Los Angeles! Anyway, I quite like the theme, I think it’s funky! Hahaha 😂 😊 💕 c ya round!

The Buffy theme is frenetic rock music - good but generic. The angel theme is a lot better. It seems to have a French influence to it, like a Giorgio Moroder theme (he did the theme from Flashdance), very adult and whereas the buffy theme is like effervescent soda, the Angel theme is like fine wine.

I love the Angel theme. I really love the Buffy theme too though. I think both are perfect for the shows and set the tone well. Hearing either of them makes me smile. Buffy’s is more fun though, while the Angel theme is more beautiful/moody.

I love the Angel theme, I tend to skip the Buffy one after a while, but always listen to the Angel one.

  1. Angel
  2. Firefly
  3. Buffy

The Angel theme is great. The Buffy theme not so much.
Disagree buffy more fun as angel more slow and less upbeat

The buffy theme scary so look away if watching but better song than angel as less upbeat

What you mean by moody it's less upbeat I agree

By moody I mean a bit melancholy I suppose, it makes me feel the tone of the show, which I really like. A Buffy styled theme song wouldn’t have worked for Angel, and vice versa.

Both themes suit their respective show.

Angel is more macabre, the character is in the shadows coming to terms with his past and righting his wrongs, and so his theme is haunting and melodious
Buffy is the peppy blonde high schooler, with quips and more lighter in tone, so her theme is more rock influenced. I'm glad they didn't take it more "pop" to be honest.

I think both themes are pretty fab, but the Angel one was my ringtone of choice back in the polyphonic days.... 😂

I think I would have said it was atmospheric. It seems like music for a night person with the smoothness that evokes the spirit of the night - not everything is lit up for you to see, but the chord progressions are dramatic so you know something of emotional significance is going on.

I think Angel's theme would have worked for Buffy. The credits would have had to be altered somewhat but I certainly think it could have worked for the show.

Ringtones used to be polyphonic, just tonal notes, back in the day when mobile phones were more like bricks...
