Many classic Gerry Anderson shows of the s and s ended with a theme song that was usually completely different from the opening title theme at the beginning of the show! Supercar opened and closed with the same theme song, which for the first season featured solo vocals from Mike Sammes. The Stingray opening titles are rightly praised as a masterpiece of exciting editing that perfect encapsulate what the show is all about, but the end titles are almost as well remembered. Unlike the action-packed opening though, the end titles offer a love song to one specific character; the voiceless Marina, often mis-remembered as Aqua Marina thanks to this song. Sung by Gary Miller, with much swooning and soaring from background singer Joan Brown, Aqua Marina is a beautiful and sometimes melancholy piece that perfectly underscore the end credits visuals. Gary Miller would soon find himself asked to record the end titles song for the next Anderson production, Thunderbirds — but this would ultimately go unused until the penultimate episode of the series, Ricochet! The version heard on the first fourteen episodes was largely instrumental, with occasional spooky vocals from Barry Gray himself, but this would be replaced for the final eighteen with a full song from real-life pop group the Spectrum. This song would follow largely the same tune as its predecessor, but now featured the group singing with delightfully ghoulish glee about all the terrible things the Mysterons will do to Captain Scarlet as part of their War of Nerves against the Earth. Surprisingly their rendition of the Captain Scarlet song did not see an official release during the original run of the show but the group were often to be found in Spectrum uniforms to promote the series.
