Covers of the AB Theme

Postby Shiyonasan » 5 years ago

I was going to post a thread for an awesome piano cover of the Astro Boy theme I found the other day, but I thought it might be good to make a central thread for covers of the Astro Boy theme that you or I might find.

If you find a cover of the Astro Boy theme you like, go ahead and post it here.

Here's some of the ones that I and some other members have found:

Piano cover

ZONE energetic cover (Astro Boy 2003 ending)

ZONE ballad cover (Astro Boy 2003 ending)

Soft electric guitar cover (Starts at 3:53 and ends at 5:15)

Shamisen cover 1

Shamisen cover 2

And just for kicks, here's a cover of the 1980s English anime ending:

The first three links point to the same youtube page.
That fourth one sounds 'Hawaiian'!
OK that's the SECOND Shamisen version of the theme I've heard, (the next link is the same one I found before).

If only there was a recorded copy of the Skype choir version. That one is clearly the superior version, even better than itself. It's the path that transcends your mind through the milky way galaxy and beyond.

Haha, indeed! :lol:

I just found a full version of the ballad version used in the 2003 series, so I'll share it here:

The last link on the first post (the rock cover) brings back good memories of the first time I saw reruns of the '80s show as a kid. Good times.
While looking for the church organ version that was mentioned about in the Skype meeting, I was able to find this Jazz piano arrangement of the theme.

Here's one of the many, many choir covers of the Astro Boy theme from YouTube. I love the arrangement of this version:
