This is why it is never a good idea to put a bunch of attractive people in one place, let alone one show.
The 2009 version should never have been, just like the new 90210.
Anyway, as we all know, we are in that time where 5-second opening sequences seem to be the new trend—it sucks, I know. Version two of Melrose Place is a victim, so let’s get it over and done with.
Now on to the 1990s Melrose Place, the one with the definitive theme song.
On YouTube, the opening credits was uploaded by none other than CBS’ official channel, so it doesn’t get more official than that. (I realize the series was shown of FOX, but CBS released the DVD.) Below is their upload.
Of course, the video clips changed throughout the seasons, with the advent of new characters and actors, but the song remained.
The franchise released two official soundtracks. The first is Melrose Place: The Music, which for some reason did not include the theme song, and the second Melrose Place Jazz, which has the theme, where it is simply credited as “Melrose Place” (track 1).
The theme song is credited to composer Tim Truman.
