Re: Post Your Favorite Tv Show Theme Songs


The two that immediately come to mind are probably my favorites.

Fireball XL5, from 1962. I don't know if anybody here knows it at all, and I've never even seen the show, but after a couple or so listens to the theme song, you'll realize how catchy it is, albeit a bit corny... but hey, it was 1962.

And...

The Greatest American Hero, which is impossible not to love.

I didn't realize how hot Connie Sellecca was back then. Heck, I think she's still hot now.

Anyone? No one? Ahhhhh.

True story: Bea Arthur is really 19 there. She has never appeared to be under the age of 70.

Re: Post Your Favorite Tv Show Theme Songs


The MacGyver theme is one of my faves, as well. So is the "Home Improvement" one.

Another fave: the theme for "Miami Vice". One of the most smoking themes of all time. I liked the visual montage that was shown with the theme, as well.

And "Diff'rent Strokes".

Re: Post Your Favorite Tv Show Theme Songs


The "Freaks and Geeks" theme reminded me of another t.v. theme that's very high on my list of favorites - the theme from "Square Pegs". "Square Pegs" was the 1982 comedy/drama (it only lasted one season) starring a very young Sarah Jessica Parker.

I couldn't find the entire theme on youtube - but here's a link to another site. The theme song doesn't start up until halfway through the clip (after two teens with some of the clearest diction I've ever heard talk about how "popular" they're going to be - I'm not sure if that's SJP talking or not...). The song is performed by The Waitresses, which was an actual early'80s New Wave band. The lead singer's vocals are awesome...

The Waitresses did a full-length version of this song that's on one of their albums.

Re: Post Your Favorite Tv Show Theme Songs


Oh, and all of the NFL football themes are high on my list! The superb (IMO) NBC "Football Night in America" theme is an absolute fave. It plays in a continuous loop on the official website (just wait the intro out, or press "skip intro", to get to the real theme): http://www.snfonnbc.com/

The current FOX, CBS, and, of course, Monday Night football's classic theme are all excellent. Here's a youtube clip that compiles all three of these themes:

[youtube:1b5oiffw]A7NyOMuBLNY[/youtube:1b5oiffw]

It seems that the composers who compose these themes always do an excellent job in generating robust music that represents the intensity and hardiness of NFL football.

Cupid was a short-lived, underrated, but admittedly uneven (excellent when an episode was written by a competent writer) series in 1998. The theme song was an abridged version of "Human," performed by Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders. The song was written by Shelly Peiken and Mark McEntee.

Here's the full song:

Here's Chrissie Hynde at her prime, a quarter of a century ago (hard to believe it's been so long):
