Waiting For Law & Order

I love it when ideas come out of nowhere. That’s what happened with my latest mashup.

Mind you, one day last week, I was vetting possible combinations with a song from a movie: the theme from The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Thanks to its infamous nature, it’s been on my radar for a long time. Even with that going for it, I ended up scrapping what I initially thought would have been a viable mashup idea.

Fast forward a few hours later. I was checking my Instagram feed when I saw an image of the late Jerry Orbach and a quote from a long-running American TV show: “In the criminal justice system…” The theme song from that show instantly came back to me; it didn’t take me long to find a suitable match for it.

Imagine my pleasant surprise when I found out that the man behind such well-known TV themes as Hill Street Blues and Magnum P.I. also composed this one. Once again, it’s an honour to pay tribute to the work of Mike Post.
