History of the Star Trek theme song

Those who have seen me at parties know that I will sing the theme song to the original Star Trek at the drop of a hat (yes, it has lyrics!).

My buddy SF writer Edward Willett has drawn this YouTube interview with Alexander Courage, who wrote the music (but not the lyrics -- those are by Roddenberry), to my attention. Check it out!

Let me see if I can do this from memory:
"Beyond the rim of star light

My love is wandering in star flight

I know he'll find in star clustered reaches

Love, strange love, a star woman teaches

I know his journey ends never

His star trek goes on forever

But tell him while wanders his starry sea

Remember, remember me."

Next get together Rob. You and me - duet!

We'll create our own singularity!
