SEINFELD Getting Its First-Ever Soundtrack Release

I have never watched a single episode of The Greatest American Hero. However, I have seen every episode of Seinfeld. Multiple times. That’s why the Greatest American Hero theme song has been stuck in my head for decades… but with the wrong lyrics. Believe it or not, I never stop humming “George isn’t at home.” His annoyingly catchy answering machine message is a part of my brain’s permanent earworm playlist. And now it can be part of an actual playlist. Seinfeld‘s soundtrack is getting its first-ever official album release.

WaterTower Music is bringing the original songs, tunes, and jingles of Seinfeld to stores on July 2. The show’s composer, Jonathan Wolff, curated the album. He selected numbers specifically with fans of the iconic sitcom in mind. You can find the full 33-song tracklist below. It covers the show’s music from the very beginning of the series right through its finale.

Everyone will recognize the sitcom’s iconic theme. But other tracks titles cite their specific episodes to help fans identify when they first heard them. Nevertheless, many will be instantly identifiable. Plenty of viewers will recognize “Kramer’s Pimpwalk” from the episode when he rocked Joseph’s amazing technicolor dreamcoat. They’ll also remember the tunes of “The Lopper” warning of a dangerous killer in the neighborhood. (Maybe.)

Having Seinfeld‘s official soundtrack will not stop “George’s Answering Machine” from playing in my head anytime soon. But it will make it sound better than ever.
