Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet contributed all of the original music for the series, including the opening theme "Having An Average Weekend". Brian Connelly was also occasionally credited as the "musical consultant" or "musical director". They also backed Bruce McCulloch on a number of songs, including "Daves I Know" (which was released on Bruce's Shame-Based Man album) and "The Terrier Song", which hasn't been released.

They appear on screen as well. The opening & closing credits changed from season to season, but Shadowy Men are visible in a couple of those (a capture from one of the credits is on the Pictures page). Apart from the credits and link music, the S Men (or their music) appear in the following sketches:

First Season (1989-1990):

Second Season (1990-1991):

MP3s:

Want to hear the music from the show? The links in the following table point to MP3s of the S Men music from each episode. They're taken from the DVDs, so any dialogue, applause, etc. are here as well, so some songs are easier to hear than others. Many thanks to Sean Plaisted for ripping, assembling, and hosting these MP3s on his web site.

Strictly speaking, this film doesn't really belong in this section as Shadowy Men and Shadowy Men music don't appear anywhere in the film. However, Don Pyle makes a … pardon the pun … brief appearance in the film. He's the guy who's copy of Alice Cooper's School's Out album complete with the pair of panties that came with the original copies of the record.
