As many of you will know, if you have checked out this page of the site, The Barenaked Ladies wrote and performed The Big Bang Theory Theme song; more specifically, Ed Robertson wrote the lyrics.

“I’m delighted and I’m really proud of that song and I’m really happy they asked me to write it,” Robertson tells Spinner while in Toronto promoting the band’s new album ‘All in Good Time.’ “It’s a really smart and funny show. The creators Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady were big fans of the band and they called. They said, ‘We love your writing. All we need from you is sort of a history of everything in about 32 seconds.'”

After getting a look at the pilot episode as well as a script, Robertson went to work on meshing the lyrics with a montage of “fast-forwarding series’ of images.”

“I just thought, ‘Oh I hope I get this gig, I worked really hard on it,'” he says. “And they were great to work with.”

Perhaps what was also in Robertson’s favour for the theme — which was later fleshed out to a full-length song — was pure coincidence.

“I’m a total science geek and I had just read a book by Simon Singh called ‘Big Bang: Everything You Need to Know About the Most Important Discovery of All Time,'” he says. “It’s kind of a layman’s explanation of every scientific discovery that led up to cosmological theory. So I had just read that and then I got asked, ‘Would you be interested in writing a theme song for a show called The Big Bang Theory?’ ‘Yes! Yes!’ So yeah, it was really fun.”
