Listen to Buffy the Vampire Slayer Theme slowed down 800%. Following the heels of the Justin Bieber song that was slowed down 800% so are some of our favorite sci-fi/fantasy tracks, including the Buffy Theme.

This article also includes pictures of Summer Glau, sadly no Firefly, Angel or Dollhouse theme was included. It's a great listen. Brings up the haunting and emotional parts of the series.
Those work really well. Kudos.
That sounds pretty cool. Reminds me of the soundtrack for the last scene in Propechy girl, when they use the theme song for inspiration.
It sounds like a rock version of the Bladerunner soundtrack.
I have to say, that is pretty frickin' awesome. I bet Angel's would sound fantastic.

Wow. Wasn't expecting that. Nice!
Seems cool, but I just don't have 4 hours to listen to them all. I listened to the most from spider man, because it had easily recognizable lyrics:
Caaaaaaaannnnnnn heeeeeeeee swwwwwwwiiiiiinnnnnnnnggggggg ffffffrrrrrroooooooommmmmmm aaaaaaaaaa ttttrrrreeeeaaaaaaaddddddd? Taaaaaakkkkkkkeeeeee aaaaaaaaa llllllooooooooooooooookkkkkkk oooooovvvvvveeeeerrrrrr hhhhhhhheeeeeaaaaaaaaddddddd.
By the way, that Justin Bieber song slowed down 800% was a fake, it was actually another atmospheric band. That said some of the songs slowed down or speed up to try to repeat a similar experiment have been really cool.
Just got another entry for my Halloween playlist. I like the vibe of creepiness I'm getting from it.
Matt_Fabb: Nope. The fake rumour was a hoax:,44254/
That was so awesome!!!
If only I had an entire hour to listen to Star Wars...

The guitar riff at the beginning of BtVS's was scary.
GOOD nyborg, man...
Huh, if I can figure out how to work this (me and technology have issues...), I may record me playing the Angel theme and stretch it. I'll let people know how it goes if you're interested.
I swear I'd finish listening to it, but I was only six minutes in...

Wish they'd had Angel and Firefly, those would have been awesome too.
Maybe if instead of being slowed down 800%, if it was 600% or something less, I might've enjoyed them.

Couldn't get through the entire Babylon 5 or Terminator ones, but did have the Buffy slow-down on in the background while I read my e-mails. Meh. I think I'm just too impatient for these, plus they make me long for the originals.
I sped up the Firefly theme 100,000% and embedded it into this comment. Want to hear it again?
What I love about the Buffy theme is that the melody really shines here. Beautiful! Babylon 5 is great too.
Yeah, if you can get the Angel one done at the lest I would love to listen to it, fuffybaby18.
Liked the Buffy.
Would enjoy an Angel.
Oh, and there were Summer photos in the article, too.
I tried being patient, but it took too long. That sounded awesome, but my Pavlovian response to the Buffy theme is to get excited for an episode, and that made me insane with anticipation. I think 400% might have been more in my attention span.
