these are great...& according to the hollywood reporter (via big screen little screen), there will be new ones airing after each episode of the wire when the final season kicks off 01/06 (on demand 12/31)...also, if you haven't seen the other promos for the new season, big screen little screen's got those as well...anyways, here are a few versions of the show's opening theme, i haven't been able to get my hands on takes by the neville brothers or domaje (from seasons 3 & 4, respectvely), but you'll be able to hear them when the wire: and all the pieces matter is released on 01/08...& if you're still not caught up, the season 4 dvd came out yesterday, so get on it.
