Remember theme songs? I do. Once upon a time, I sat down to watch my favorite shows and I could always count on a little tune to make me excited my favorite show was about to come on. Nowadays, it’s talking. Jon & Kate’s show starts with them rambling about their lives with crappy background music. In honor of pre-reality show time, a list of my top-five favorite theme songs of all time. What are yours?
Five: Full House
Oh, Danny Tanner and your crazy cleanliness. Joey with your silly Bullywinkle voice and Uncle Jesse with your hair. I heart Full House and it’s simple theme song…even though Bob Saget is now creepy.
Four: Charles in Charge
This is the 1987-88 theme…the one before that in 1984-85 was that weird slow one, plus I was an infant in ’84 and didn’t appreciate a good theme song yet.
Three: Saved by the Bell
When that bell rang, you knew you were in for a 30-minute treat of high school antics. Tell me you don’t know all the words to this one.
Two: The Golden Girls
Thank you for being a friend. ‘Nuf said.
One: Salute Your Shorts
Is there any explanation for this theme song? This show practically defines my childhood. Enjoy this materpiece! Ug Lee, Ug Lee, Ug Lee…
