The Truth is Out There: ‘X-Files’ Cast Reunite to Sing Theme Song
I know it sounds weird to say that the cast of the "X-Files" reunited to SING the theme song. The theme song, which is arguably one of the most recognized theme songs in TV history, has no words. Well, it didn't have words until now; because of course, nothing makes sense in 2020 might as well throw some words onto the "X-Files" theme song.
While it certainly feels like we're living an actual episode of the "X-Files" the cast came together via Zoom meeting for a good cause. In an effort to raise money for the World Central Kitchen, which helps communities in crisis, providing hot meals and solutions for hunger and poverty, the video features a ton of the shows favorites along with creators and writers for the show. Of course it wouldn't complete with our favorite detectives- Mulder and Scully. While David Duchovny is the first face you see, as the video progresses you worry that Gillian Anderson won't show up- until she does at the end! Check it out below and listen for the "lyrics" to the theme song!
The video also features Mitch Pileggi (Walter Skinner), Robert Patrick (John Doggett), Annabeth Gish (Monica Reyes), Nicholas Lea (Alex Krycek), and William B. Davis (Cigarette Smoking Man), as well as creator Chris Carter, writer/director/executive producer Vince Gilligan, writer/director/consulting producer Darin Morgan, and writer/director/co-EP James Wong, and lots more.
Lyrics to the song were written by contest winners Jennifer Large and Rebecca MacDonald. I really wish all of us on the show knew that there was a contest, we could have totally come up with our own lyrics to it! You can make a donation to the World Central Kitchen here.
