I was aware of the prayer lyrics, and they do fit the show. I simply don't like New Age/World music. The militaristic dirge was very cool and fit the show well, IMO. I always get a little nostalgic when I go back and watch my S1 DVDs.
The biggest issue I have with the US theme was that the UK theme was the original theme, but the US theme was inserted in Season 1 for american audiences in fear they "wouldn't get it."
So basically the UK theme is the real theme, and the US theme is the dumbed-down version. That's what irks me, and enough people complained and now the US version uses the "real theme."
Whenever I hear that people don't like the "Real theme" my first thought is that they might be naive of its significance. Guess that doesn't apply to you, sorry.
I mean, how many shows out there that are dramas, sci-fi dramas, make allusions to Hinduism, Mormonism, Christianity, and Islam?
