Knight Rider theme/intro
"Knight Rider - A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist.
Michael Knight, A young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.”
Knight Rider was one of my favorite TV shows growing up, and that theme song was champion music, straight up. It was a TV show about a man (or they called him a modern knight), who fought crime with the help of a artifically intelligent and nearly indestructible car, named KITT. I remember when Busta Rhymes had sampled it for his song “Fire it Up”, I was like word! someone finally sampled that song. I wasn’t a huge fan of Timbaland and Magoo’s version of it, but it was still hot though, I think both came out in 1998.
It was my older brother who got me into Knight Rider, the summer of 1993, when I first moved to San Antonio. I was about 8 years old, and was brand new to the area, and would just stay home watching a lot of TV. My oldest brother would always put on this TV show about a car that could talk, and I remember thinking that was the illest thing ever. I even thought the driver, Michael Knight was cool with his leather jacket and boots lol. Still to this day I want a Trans Am, with the flashing light on the front.
P.S. I think Curren$y had a song called “Michael Knight”, but I don’t remember it having much to do with the TV show or car, it seemed like it was more him just rappin, and put that as a title of it, I can’t remember, so I’m not sure, but I think it was Pilot Talk 2.
I love it 80’s Knight Rider Theme!
