This is music that (hilariously) sometimes gets stuck in my head! Especially the good old songs from the earlier seasons.

I found some tweets from Lee Sanders who apparently is still composing music for TAR 22. I wasn't sure where to put this since it's not a spoiler. Georgiapeach suggested that I resurrect this old thread and put it here.

Lee Sanders ‏@sandersmusic
After the Super Bowl it's back to writing music for The Amazing Race 22, then working on wedding plans. Not bad for a random Sun. in April.

Lee Sanders ‏@sandersmusic
I just rocked out a last minute Amazing Race cue from four episodes before the country I'm currently scoring. Musical jet lag.

Lee Sanders ‏@sandersmusic
Also: musical styles from different parts of the world are *really* different. Obvious, sure, but tonight's work just hammered that home.

Lee Sanders ‏@sandersmusic
I'm considering doing a blog based on my 12 years of scoring Race--what I've learned about music of all those countries. Good idea?
Feb 13


I checked out his website at http://sandersmusic.net/ and he has uploaded about 10 pieces of music he's done for past TAR seasons and other clips he's done for other shows. From his home page, click on the music link to get to his music. Background music doesn't stick with me enough to recognize any of it, but it does seem to be in the right style.  Generally they about a minute long, so I suspect the show excerpts smaller pieces to use in the show. There was one link marked "The Amazing Race Show Open" posted 3 months ago. It is the opening theme in a slightly reworked style. I looked at the 3 minute sneak peek video that got posted for the first leg and it is not the theme music used there, so I'm guessing it was from an earlier season.

That's the music that's heard right when the first episode of the season begins, before Phil has an opening narration even. I remember it being in 19 and I think it's in also 20.



I love his music for TAR, too bad there's not a CD of it.

Sanders has been with TAR since the very beginning, he was the one who wrote the Horns of Perseverance (officially "Previously On"), the song that started each episode of the early seasons! (I wished they'd bring it back for the finales, it's a classic!)

You can recognise Sander's signature motif for TAR in some of the episodes, first heard waaaay back when Rob and Brennan got off the 7 train at Flushing Meadows. It's been adapted for various locales: India, Egypt, Hawaii... It's presented in minor key at 0:38 of "Omani Driving" on his website. It's one of the few bits of continuity on TAR that has lasted through all twenty-plus seasons!

(Ah, my geekdom is returning.)

Edit: Dug it up (http://www.filedropper.com/victory) from the original season, and also the Hawaiian version (http://www.filedropper.com/hawaiianvictory) from TAR 3! If anyone has a clean version let me know! "Victory" is a misnomer. There's a piece called "Elimination" based on the same motif.

I always think I'm not a "true" TAR fan because I don't have a TAR ringtone.

On another note, Lee is actually from my hometown and we graduated from the same high school! How cool is that! I don't know him because he is a bit older, but we have several mutual friends. If only I could use this very minor TAR link to actually get on the show.

Interesting. I've never heard those songs on TAR before, but I could see them fitting in well! Maybe they are his new ones for Season 22?

I remember going on his website around the time of TAR 14 and back then he had some older TAR tunes as well as a few he said were new for season 14. I wonder why they aren't on his site anymore?

I love the music of TAR! I do pay attention to it while watching the episodes and it has evolved a LOT since season 1! There are a lot of older tunes (from Seasons 1 through 11 or so) that I don't hear very often on the show anymore.

But I enjoy a lot of his TAR music, especially a few themes he added in season 14 that have been commonly played on the show since that time.

As for these 10 songs, I can't say I've ever heard them on TAR before, but take that with a grain of salt, as I haven't seen seasons 19-21 yet. What I want to know is where all the older tunes went that used to be on his website.

They really need to bring this back as the intro before the episode starts! It was so classic! I remember how much I hated it when they took this song away. :'(

Lee! :<3 Love the work and effort you put into making TAR's music for over twenty seasons. I can't wait to hear more tunes!

One of my favorite musical ensembles is from TAR13 when Marisa & Brooke and Aja & Ty are Detour and drive battling for 7th/Last place in New Zealand.
