Those are some oldies but goodies. My personal fave is the theme from Hawaii Five O. :thumbsup: Book 'em Dano. :smile:

I also always loved Those Were The Days sung by Archie and Edith Bunker in All In The Family. :banana:

Personally, I like the theme song from The Wiggles. :wink02: The Teletubbies (evil lookin' lil demons) song is right down there too. :yuck:

The Welcome Back Kotter tune - I always sang along to it.

:dang: how could i forget "where everybody knows your name"???

if i wasnt mainly thinking about themesongs that have gotten radio play or actually have lyrics i definitely wouldve added the theme from "night court" which has one of the funkiest bass riffs ever.

I think the song is "With a Little Help From My Friends"

My favorites are the themes from "M*A*S*H", "Hill Street Blues", "Laverne & Shirley," "Happy Days," and "The Andy Griffith Show."

The song from Wonder Years by Joe ****er, the name of the tune escapes me.great show, excellent song (moves to the top of my list) although i prefer the beatles version. im trying to think who did the original.

i didnt like and never watched the show but "fame" is a catchy tune.

OOOOOH WEEEEEEEE!

The petticoat junction in Mentor Ohio, is a gentlemans club, aka strip bar. On the corner of 615 and Tyler. I`m sure your brother who lives in Mentor knows about it!

The theme for Lee Majors show The Fall Guy - "The Unknown Stuntman"

Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell
But I've been seen with Farrah
I've never been seen with anything than a nine
So fine

I've been on fire with Sally Field
Gone fast with a girl named Bo
But somehow they did not end up as mine

I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs
Blown up for Raquel Welch
But when I wind up in the hay,
It's only hay (hey, hey)

I might jump an open drawbridge
Or Tarzan from a vine
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman
That makes Eastwood look so fine...
