Musical Montage: Tommy Shaw “Remo’s Theme (What If)”

May 16, 2022

One of the roles the late Fred Ward was known for was Remo Williams in 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, which Orion Pictures hoped would become a James Bond-style action series for them. However, the movie failed critically and commercially however and there were no other Remo Williams movies. Adding to the James Bond feel, Styx lead singer Tommy Shaw contributed a theme song, “Remo’s Theme (What If)”, with a music video set on the movie’s replica of the Statue of Liberty that was used in one of the main set pieces of the film.
