Here Comes the Spider-Man Theme Covers: Volume

18 days, 18 goddamn glorious 1967 Spider-Man TV show theme song covers! Because a spider has 8 legs, and if you take the 1 away from 18 you get 8! Here’s Day 13:

The focus in these posts has been on the 60’s Spider-Man theme song, and the band featured in this one certainly did a cover of that. But I think today I’ll post something a little different from them: it’s a cover of the interstitial music heard on the show, which anyone who watched it regularly would instantly recognize. It kind of makes me think of A Charlie Brown Christmas. That holiday perennial is eternally remembered, but mostly for the music featured within. I feel the 1967 Spider-Man enjoys the same phenomena.

So, the band is a Winnipeg outfit called Volume, their 2002 album is called The Amazing Spider-Band, and this particular piece is titled Tribute to Spider-Man:
