Angeleno composed MLS on NBC Sports network “rock orchestra” theme music

Philadelphia and Colorado kickoff at 1 p.m. today in the second NBC Sports Network MLS telecast.

The theme music was composed by 32-year-old West LA resident Cody Westheimer.

Westheimer, who said he is an avid runner/cyclist and triathleye and composed the Tour de France theme for Verses (the former name of the rebranded NBC Sports Network) is also a newfound soccer fan.

“I do like soccer, and have just started to follow the LA Galaxy – the defending champs!” he said via email. “I played as a kid, but who knows….maybe it will become my next obsession.”

  • The music sound very nice, but not something one will remember a week or even 5 minutes later. it makes me think of the film gladiator, but the problem is there is no actual theme music it is just crowd sounds with a rhythm. If you are going to put so much effort into something like this, it should be memorable like the hockey night in Canada theme.

    I can still sing this song after 35 years and I dont really care that much for hockey. Shouldnt we get that for soccer.
