This is a great theme song, in the 1960s Stax/ Atlantic soul style. I have listened to this so many times - mainly for the immaculate brass riffs in the background. Just first rate.
But the lyrics are a bit hard to unravel. Luckily, Sir Ian Mckellen has been gracious enough to act them for us - in his inimitable vocal style...
(This, also, I have viewed innumerable times. Perfect of its kind.)
Some form of warning may be appropriate here... the 'Duck Tales' theme is typically used as the go-to example for 'a song that gets irretrievably stuck in your head'.
So is La Donna e mobile - because they're good.
You may not have encountered the talespin theme, from the same era of children's Saturday morning Disney cartoons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tKHlukQTik
For some reason, this reminds me of those recordings of NPR's Carl Kasell reading Francis E. Dec tracts.
