A Star Trek film with a song? That's just... weird. And cool.
Well, there were words to Ilia's Theme (and Shaun Cassidy even released a version as a tie-in to TMP).
ST IV had "I Hate You".
There is also a song by Hiroshima on the ST V soundtrack, "The Moon's a Window to Heaven". (And there was always "Row, row, row your boat.")
Paramount Pictures have just revealed that various artists across 6 countries are contributing to the Star Trek: Into Darkness soundtrack. Amongst them are Australians, songwriter/producer Robert Conley and vocalist Penelope Austin, who co-wrote and worked on a track called “The Dark Collide”.
This is the first time a Paramount live-action film will feature lyricists, vocalists and music producers from around the world, each with their own contribution being spotlighted during the film’s theatrical run in each of the artists’ respective countries. Come May 9th, Aussies will be able to hear our own Conley and Austin‘s work during a pivotal scene with iconic Star Trek character Scotty.
The song – which Conley co-wrote with Austin – will also be found on the Star Trek: Into Darkness official soundtrack, which features Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino’s score. It will also be available for digital download on all major platforms around the film’s release.
