Hey, it’s Chris Miles!
For today’s unscientific poll question, I am wondering….
What is your favorite TV theme song? Let me know in the comments below.
Mine is the Knight Rider Theme
I went back to my childhood and my second love, TV for this one.
I used to love coming home from school and watching all the re-runs on channel 32. This was before they had network names for everything and you had to use the second turned knob. I loved Get Smart, Batman (yes the 60’s campy classic), and What’s Happening. Just to name a few.
As I got older, I started to recognize the theme songs from some of the TV shows I watched. “The Wonder Years” (A Little Help From My Friends), “Life Goes On” (Ob-la-di Ob-la-da), “Grace Under Fire” (Lady Madonna). All of course Beatles songs. (I thank my dad for getting me into classic rock at such a young age, 2 if I remember correctly.
Other TV Show theme songs have become mainstream hits:
Friends (I’ll Be There For You) – The Rembrandts
Hawaii 5-O – The Ventures
The Greatest American Hero (Believe It Or Not) – Joey Scarbury
Can you name some others?
