The Defenders Theme Song

2010 Let’s see how long this show will last. Well, at least it has got some stars (fallen?) in it—Jim Belushi and Jerry O’Connell. The show is about two defense attorneys from Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s supposed to be funny, wait, correction, it is supposed to be a comedy-drama—so anytime you find it unfunny, that [...]

Medium Theme Song

2005–present I’m surprised this show has been at it for 5 years and it has not reached our shores. Good thing it was recommended to my by a colleague. I just love it when I have 5 seasons worth of good shows to marathon. Anyway, the theme from Medium reminds me of the theme from [...]

Blue Bloods Theme Song

2010 I just finished watching the first episode of Blue Bloods and it looks interesting, and quite star-studded at that—that is if you consider Donnie Wahlberg a star. Although to be honest, anything with Bridget Moynahan. The opening song is apparently called “Reagan’s Theme,” after the Reagan family of police officers characters—with Tom Selleck’s character, [...]

Flashpoint Theme Song

2008–present And now it’s time to conquer CBS. The Flashpoint theme is the kind that grows on you slowly, and is television police drama appropriate—kind of like the Criminal Minds theme where you slowly find yourself jamming to it as you watch more and more episodes. Anyhow, the song was composed by Amin Bhatia and [...]

Gary Unmarried Theme Song

2008–2010 Well, well, I just want to commemorate this short-lived television series that had barely-a-song of a theme song. Gary Unmarried starred Jay Mohr with a bunch of out-of-his-league babes. It aired its last episode on March 17, 2010; to be honest, it had its moments. Forward on to 4:46 to view the 5-second song [...]

The Price Is Right Theme Song

1972–present “Come on down!” Hey wait a minute, did you know that the super original The Price Is Right was not the one hosted by Bob Barker? That’s right, the first The Price Is Right aired between 1956 and 1965, and was hosted by Bill Cullen. So, the official hosts are: Bill Cullen, Bob Barker, [...]

Mary Tyler Moore Theme Song

1970–1977; also, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show theme song” The Mary Tyler Moore Show starred, well, Mary Tyler Moore as Mary Richards. It was an American sitcom created by James L. Brooks (The Simpsons), and Allan Burns. Let’s just say this show is an acclaimed, award-winning show—especially because it featured a strong, never-married career woman [...]

Wonder Woman Theme Song

1975–1979 Ah, Lynda Carter at her finest. First, let’s get all our facts straight. The Wonder Woman television series lasted 3 seasons. Its first season was in ABC in 1975. It was oficially called The New Original Wonder Woman. This was probably so because there was a television movie made in 1974 (also for ABC) [...]

The Andy Griffith Show Theme Song

1960-1968 Now here’s a classic. The Andy Griffith Show, starring Andy Griffith, of course, was a CBS sitcom about a widowed sheriff in a fictional small community called Mayberry in North Carolina. Its theme song is a whistled version of “The Fishin’ Hole”. It was composed by film and television composers Earle Hagen and Herbert [...]

Alfred Hitchcock Presents Theme Song

1955-1962 This is one of the most iconic theme songs in history, that, even after 50 years, people like me who weren’t even born when the show aired, know of its theme song. That is partly because the song is a timeless classical piece, by a timeless classical composer—Frenchman Charles Gounod, who lived in the [...]
