Unused Enterprise opening credits leaked

In fact, this was leaked about 6 months ago, so I don't know why any of the news outlets didn't pick this up.

They wanted "Beautiful Day" by U2, by all accounts. Like the song and it was a big hit shortly before Enterprise began. Not sure the lyrics of that speak to Star Trek. It's the kind of rationale that really was alien to the franchise really. Getting popular artists and their songs into movies, whether they fit or reflect the taste of the Producers, or are simply a commercial decision, like the 90s Batman ones for instance.

Kind of off-topic, but I hate it when some TV shows nowadays put songs with lyrics underneath spoken dialogue. The song has words, and there are words being spoken. I know they do it with the purpose to sell the person's song on iTunes or whatever (because they sell it at the end of the show), but it's incredibly distracting.

Back in the good old days, record labels always used to produce instrumental versions specifcally for TV shows to licence out. I believe this still happens, but for some reason more and more shows licence the versions with lyrics.

The less said about Rick Berman's taste in music, the better.
