Project Runway music available on composer’s site

It’s easy enough to download The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams” from iTunes and then let a fan blow your hair around while you make out with your horse–you know, to recreate the title sequence of The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.

But what if you want to strut down your own runway while wearing clothes you’ve just sewn to your body, recreating the judging segments of Project Runway? Last season, Bravo offered an MP3 of the show’s “farewell theme”, but it’s not easy to look fierce with that emotional music playing in the background.

Thankfully, the show’s original music composer, Harold Barefoot Sanders III, or Biff (seriously), is offering free MP3s of three original Project Runway compositions on his web site. There’s “Get Plastered,” part of which is used as the show’s theme song; “Breathe on Me,” the aforementioned farewell song that’s kind of sad; and “Prodigal,” the electronic, uptempo theme that was used for a number of runway shows last season.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds
