The Jem Theme is a song by Jem and The Holograms in collaboration with The Misfits. It was the first opening song of the Jem animated TV series which ran from 1985 to 1988. The song is an alternate version of Truly Outrageous, remixed to fit the TV series intro's imagery and also allows for a verse sung by The Misfits to be added.

Starting from season 2, the Jem Theme was replaced with "Jem Girls", which became the show's opening theme up until the series ended in 1988, while the former was kept as the show's closing theme for all three seasons.

International versions

  • The Latin American version is called "El Tema De Jem" ("The Theme Of Jem"), also known as "Me Llamo Jem" ("My Name Is Jem").

Lyrics

English version

Jem (Jem is excitement)
Ooh, Jem (Jem is adventure)
Ooh (glamour and glitter, fashion and fame)

Jem (Jem is truly outrageous, truly, truly, truly outrageous)
Whoa, Jem (Jem), the music's contagious (outrageous)
Jem is my name, no one else is the same
Jem is my name

But we're The Misfits
Our songs are better
We are The Misfits, The Misfits
And we're gonna get her

Jem (Jem), the music's contagious (outrageous)
Jem is my name, no one else is the same
Jem is my name (Jem)

Spanish version

Jem (Jem es vibrante)
Uuh, Jem (es aventura)
Uuh-uuh (moda y fama, glamur y belleza)

Jem (Jem es fabulosa, super, super fabulosa)
Uuoh, Jem (Jem), ritmo vibrante (excitante)
Me llamo Jem, nadie es igual a mí
Me llamo Jem

Somos Las Misfits
Somos mejores
Somos Las Misfits
Somos mejores

Jem (Jem), ritmo vibrante (excitante)
Me llamo Jem, nadie es igual a mí
Me llamo Jem (Jem)

Trivia

  • The Jem Theme was actually Britta Phillips's audition; she only had to sing it once to make it to the final cut.
  • A remixed and instrumental-only version of the verse sung by the Misfits was frequently used in many episodes, usually in scenes focusing on villains.
  • The verse sung by the Misfits was also used in many of the toy commercials featuring them.
  • Most of the scenes used in the Jem Theme were reused in Jem Girls.
  • A few episodes on the Shout! Factory releases have the intro with just the audio and no voices, or with the voices really low and the music really loud. This also happened on the end theme for a few episodes on the same release.
