New theme song for Speed Racer

Why mess with a good thing? The theme song for the Warner Brothers summer flick Speed Racer has dropped over the weekend on Myspace. And it’s as cringe inducing as the new Sex and the City theme song by Fergie. “Go Speed Racer Go” is performed by Ali Dee and the Deekompressors. And they took what was a groovy little tune and just bastardized it.

And yeah, you’re probably going to need drugs to enjoy the Wachowski Brothers movie. It looks like a live action anime cartoon. If you suffer from seizures then you may want to avoid this when it comes out on May 9.

    I guess I’m the only weird one who actually likes this song. XD (And oddly enough, this is not the type of music I normally listen to.) I actually stayed through the whole credits just to listen to this song.

    Went and saw the film yesterday, and while colorful to the point that it could maybe give you seizures, it was brilliant. It was everything a live-action version of Speed Racer needed to and should be. I had so many “geek-out” moments, it wasn’t even funny. XD

    Also, the commercials don’t do the movie justice. 😐

    the movie looks a little kiddish, however i wouldn’t say the new theme music is terrible but the original theme was a little less annoying. on a scale of 1-10 on how good speed racer looks, i’d give it a 4-6 range, but i might be a little bias (BYE-ASS) because i’m a big fan of speed racer myself.
