"Power Rangers" is a song written by Kussa Mahchi, performed by Aaron Waters - The Mighty Raw. It was released in 1994 on CD, 7" inch vinyl and tape cassette during the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and at the height of the series' popularity. The single was widely publicized in the United Kingdom, and a corresponding video featuring footage from the series received considerable airtime on national television.

Track listing[edit]

The single contained four tracks, as follows:

  1. Power Rangers
  2. Power Rangers (Extended club mix)
  3. Go Green Ranger Go
  4. Power Rangers (Instrumental mix)

The 7" inch vinyl single only had three tracks, minus the extended club mix.

Track information[edit]

Of these tracks, only the third "Go Green Ranger Go" was original music from the television series. The other three were remixed and rearranged songs, using the series' theme tune as well as sound clips from the series. The extended club mix was basically just the main theme tune, but extended to last about 2 minutes longer.

The main song was particularly notable for an original line of dialogue recorded by David Fielding (Zordon) and Richard Steven Horvitz (Alpha 5) for the end of the song. The two characters, Zordon particularly, reveal the future existence of the first White Ranger, before such a thing existed in the Power Rangers franchise. However, a White Ranger did already exist in the Super Sentai series Gosei Sentai Dairanger.

Production[edit]

Power Rangers music for the single was produced by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken. "Go Green Ranger Go" was produced, arranged and engineered by Ron Wasserman, recorded at Saban Studios and mastered by Ric Wilson. The music coordinator was David Hillenbrand. All four songs were performed by Ron Wasserman (A.K.A. Aaron Waters - The Mighty RAW).
