This Is The Guy Who Sang The Original Pokemon Theme Song

Video: Even if you've been obsessed with playing Pokemon GO the past few weeks, you probably have no idea who Jason Paige is. But if you grew up watching the animated series, you definitely know his voice. He sang the epic theme song for the US version of the Pokemon cartoon. Think the resurgence in popularity is doing Paige favours? Think again. When he recorded the theme 18 years ago, he received a one-time payment for his work. Which means that although Spotify plays have sky-rocketed, Paige won't be seeing any residuals. That said, there's certainly some satisfaction in knowing that everyone playing Pokemon GO has this song stuck in their head on loop.
