I've been watching a lot of old boob tube reruns lately, and have been thinking about how catchy many of those TV themes were. Somehow those composers just seem to nail what a show was in just under two minutes (that would of course stay stuck in your head!).
So my friends, what are your favourite TV Themes? I've included a few of mine below, as well as a bit as to why they're my favourites.
Comment below with yours — if you can find a clip off YouTube, all the better!
'Moving on up, To the east side/To a deluxe apartment in the sky' - The All In The Family spin-off that seem to capture that 1970s/1980s moment of African-American upward mobility. Loved all the sassy and quick lines Florence Johnston had!
Titled 'The Streetbeater', Quincy Jones wrote and scored this. He also has many film themes under his belt — like this one.
Henry Mancini! Another talented guy. But am I the only one that always thinks of The Blues Brothers when this comes on? 'It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses'.
