Does anyone know if there are any plans for an original soundtrack for Futurama?  I'm usually not much of a soundtrack kind of guy, but there's something about the Futurama themesong that says "The next 30 minutes are going to be awesome."

I've already looked for a torrent and all I could find was a play list of all of the music from people like Beck and Donovan.  I want the Christopher Tyng stuff!

Well, no word on an official soundtrack yet, but I'm sure if it gets popular enough again, and we demand such a thing enough, they'll make it. Simpsons proved that with "The Yellow Album" and then recently "Testify" which held the best of the songs out there. If they did make a soundtrack I would hope for a bit of both aspects of the Futurama musical world. Both the musical scores and the songs which the characters perform as well. That way it can satisfy everyone.

If I remember correctly (thank gawd there's a Wikipedia page on this), "The Yellow Album" was entirely compromised of songs that never played side-by-side in official Simpsons media. That means that "The Yellow Album" was its own private, untouched Futurama-related material, like in the way of the Futurama comic book series. "Testify", on the other hand, only included songs that were played sometime in the series, mainly in the newer seasons. Though Futurama fans have a higher demand in any soundtrack at all, I would love to see a Futurama album that had original songs. That's saying alot because I actually don't like music and wouldn't listen to music on a regular basis. In fact, even for a music hater like me, I actually purchased "The Ten Commandments of Bart" from "The Yellow Album" on iTunes.

Sing the Blues and the Yellow Album were both stand-alone products, basically The Simpsons do a bunch of songs. Sing the Blues was mostly original material, whilst Yellow Album was mostly covers. They weren't too bad either. The OST albums were Songs in the Key of Springfield and a couple of others that I can't recall the name of. Songs in the Key had all the better musical cues from the early seasons.
