And I recorded the entire thing.
But that’s not what this post is about.
I’ve gone through a few computers since 2005. We’ve had a few desktops, backup hard drives—the list goes on and one. I wasn’t really sure where this recording might be. Toby Joe searched our vast MP3 server. Nothing. I looked on my old computer. Still nothing. Finally, I found a bunch of old CDs I’d burned when I left my previous job, the job I had when we attended that show.
The good news is: I found the recording. The even GOODER news is? I also found a folder full of old TV show themes. And I simply must share a few. (Also: if someone can tell me why I have these? That’d be awesome.)
See how quickly you can guess them all.
- I can’t remember, who shot him?
- If This song were a human being, it might be a child molester. (Shudder)
- I had NO IDEA what this one was from. But the husband got it on the very first note.
- Remember the sexual tension on this show? I was 10 and I felt it.
- I was four when this one aired for the first time. FOUR.
- Remember Balki and his strange “Greek” accent? Also, that weird tuft of hair that always flipped around his forehead?
- And (last and probably least): thank you for being a friend.
Just think: in 30 years from now, someone is going to be blogging (from their flying car—FINALLY!) about how lame the theme song for “CSI Miami” was.
Oh, wait. That’s an actual song.
I just had a thought: Are songs written specifically for TV shows anymore? Or do shows just adopt existing songs as their opening themes?
