Song Spotlight: Unkle - X-Files (Unkle Remix)

If you were one of the few people to see The X-Files: I Want To Believe last year (although it didn't exactly set the box office on fire, I really enjoyed it as an old X-Files fan), and in particular, if you stuck around to watch the closing credits, then you would have been treated to an excellent new version of the series' theme song by Unkle.  It still has the same flavour as the original version by Mark Snow, but there are two main elements that set it apart: the main melody is now string-based instead of whistled, and there is a driving, electronic drum beat underscoring much of the song.
The song is also curiously available as a free download from; I say "curiously" because it seems to be the only song from Unkle available for free on that site.  To download the 5.4 MB MP3, just hit the "Free MP3" link on that page.  I think that any fans of The X-Files or just remixes in general would really enjoy this song.  It also has me interested in checking out more of Unkle's work.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this great remix of a classic television theme.  Happy listening!
