General Hospital Offers Up Variation On Its Opening Title Theme Music!

On yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers noticed their was a tweak to the GH opening music theme! A more sparse piano variation was juxtaposed against the images of the cast.

Some fans were wondering if indeed the theme had been changed, but if you listened and watched the end of the episode, when the closing credits rolled, the current theme that has been heard shortly after executive producer Frank Valentini was in charge continued to play in its standard theme.

Paul Glass, the award-winning musical director at GH at one point had revealed that there would be variations on the new opening theme, and it looks like they tried a version out on Wednesday’s episode.

In case you did not notice, or missed it, watch the video of the GH opening title sequence after the jump. What did you think of it?  Did you like the change?  Comment below!

I think it’s as swift and incomplete as ever. The last excuse I heard was that they did these shortened versions of the opening so that we would be able to see previews for the next day. Other soaps that show previews have a FULL beginning. You can barely make out who is on this show and unless you know who is on it, you’d have no idea. I want the old opening back where they showed the names along with the pictures of each actor.

I like the old sirens theme. Soap themes should have some spunk and energy to them.

I don’t like it. Why don’t each actor have their own shot? I know because the cast is too large! They should do shots of the hospital ER and outside with the ambulance without faces. Keep it simple and quick. Run their names at the end and each day in the beginning for those only to appear on that episode.

Im beginning to believe Britt is a Cassidine and Victor is her father…as much as i like to see Patrick turn to Liz after Robin departs(believing she was upset about Sabrinas baby who could later turn out to really belong to Carlos, i believe Liz will end up torn between him and Nik but will either man return those feelings…will Dr.O fire Liz if she learns and reveals Bens true parents: Dante and Lulu? Will Franco turn out to be Kikis father after all…will Micheal turn to Penny(if brought back) who is really Scotts missing daughter Serena?

Interesting conclusion from the opening credits, LOL! I really like the idea of Britt being a Cassadine, but that would be super weird because of her relationship with Nikolas, if that wasn’t a factor then I’d be all for it! It would definitely explain why Victor let Obrecht off the hook for her crimes alot better, and it would give Britt a father figure who isn’t presumed dead like Faison is. I never liked Kiki (which is a stupid name, BTW) being Silas’ daughter; I think if Franco is her father, it would humanize him more. And I would love… Read more »

If Britt was Victor’s daughter that would make Nic and her cousins so I doubt that seriously.Just answering even thought I know the topic is the theme music.

The entire opening credits could do with a reworking.

Agreed, I would like to see headshots of each actor separately, like B&B and Y&R have. And even though the older GH music (faces of the heart) is classic, I think a new, more modern theme, to fit in with the direction of the show now, would be better than reusing the old one.

I have to agree with you. I love GH these days but I just don’t like the opening. I much prefer the “old days,” when it was just a short title sequence with some music. I don’t need to see everyone’s faces to know who is on the show.

I like the regular one better – it kicks off the show with big energy!

I agree with you but I still miss the theme music from two years ago that is on my phone. Or further back to places of the heart.

It is all about more advertising time, but look at Y and R they still play a long version of Nadia’s Theme and love it

That was so underwhelming for a soap opening. You have these larger than life billboards flying at you and then the music sounds like its opening a show about quilting. Let’s not use that again folks.

I totally agree. It was FAST, QUIET, and sounded like a STATION BREAK, not an intro.
Bad idea.

I like it too..
It is modern and even a bit mysterious..
GH has the best opening(s)
It’s a modern 21st century opening!!

GH keeps up with media tech, the digital age ..
Very good GH!!

I agree with you both. Theme music aside, GH is hitting all cylinders..Cartoonish or over the top, its the best overall soap in daytime.

Loved It!!!!! I knew I wasn’t hearing things!! It flowed right into the opening from the dramatics nene it was exiting. It was like primetime!!! I still miss the opening before frank came on board but I’m use to it now.

Soaps are supposed to have great themes to stand out. This one needs to be at least 35 seconds and with a siren, i mean it is GENERAL HOSPITAL, hospital being the key word here. Soap themes live with u forever!!!!

What about the original ambulance siren, Use to make me run from outside knowing my GH was about to begin, For me, It really doesn’t matter. As, I shall pick better battles then GH music.

Short is better. Use the time on the actual story. If you dont already watch and know the storylines, extended opening isnt going to bring new viewers.

Both themes are good and have different feels to them. one is dramatic and the other emotional . Both should be used and it should reflective the tone of that days show.

Who cares.. just keep the good writing and less intro so we can see more of the stories… I always fast forward thru the commercials and into anyways.. no time for that intro…

GH Continues to impress me every day more and more…

I don’t like it at all, I actually thought something was wrong with the video I was watching. It sounds like it’s missing something.

I did not like the opening on 2/5. There was nothing to it at all. I did notice that today was business as usual however which pleased me.

sounded nice. short, but nice. reminded me of what you might hear for a primetime medical drama break for commercial.

Nope, quit trying to fix something that wasnt broken…all aspects of the show. Been a fan since 1978, losing me slowly…its not OLTL or AMC its GH…keep it that way!

I didn’t like it at all, sounded to ominous to me like I was about to watch “The Phantom of the Opera” or something. Please Please Please change it back! I agree 100% with the above comment that the previous opening track is filled with more energy and gets you pumped to watch the episode!

i miss the old theme with the ambulance siren in the beginning and ending with the shot of gh. this should have been brought back if only for it’s 50th anniv. yr. since frank took over and changed it, that means extra time to get a drink or bathroom break. i don’t even watch the opening song anymore since commercials follow right after. i also liked when they changed it to the faces of the contract actors and ending with luke walking away. at least that version was still the gh song that i would hum along to. 🙁

why would you WANT to watch the opening song…it’s basically the same song…it’s not a story…it’s like staring at the cover of a book each day before you open the page to read it.

it’s a new day people…snap out of it!!! (insert Cher slapping your face here!)

Anything is an improvement–music is so generic and uninspired–not memorable in any way–more’s the pity.
Bring back the old opening–or at least keep it and tweak it a bit with a stripped down, contemporary vibe. Let us have a moment to take it in and breathe. Also would be nice to see the characters–instead of the blur we see now as they go by.
Nothing to get excited about as it stands–more’s the pity.

Damn. Why not use a ringtone instead? That would sound better than this.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
