Friday Night Fab Five: Sing...Sing a Song...

Hello everyone and welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five, this time correctly posted on Friday not like that stupid tricksy Thursday that messed me up a couple of weeks ago. LOL Just in case you're new, Friday Night Fab Five is where I list five things that I find fabulous, adorable or too fun not to share for the week.

Netflix has been featured in a previous Fab Five and as I was perusing the newest additions to the Instant Streaming categories I ran across some of the TV shows I loved back in the day. Those memories brought back something that we've lost in recent television: theme songs.

I don't just mean iconic music like Mission: Impossible or The A-Team. I'm talking real theme songs that lasted almost two minutes and showed every last person in the cast along with multiple action sequences. Not these namby pamby themes they have now that last about 3 seconds. (I'm looking at you Lost and Supernatural!) :P

So I thought, what the heck, here's 5 of my favorite old school theme songs...Enjoy! :D

1. The Greatest American Hero

2. 21 Jump Street (Oh Lord, my first look at Johnny Depp all those years ago...and he's still so dreamy!)

3. It's A Living

4. Full House

5. The Love Boat

Wow, those take me back! lol What are your favorite theme songs?

Have a great weekend everyone! :D


  1. oooh, good question! I know as soon as I leave my comment I'll think of something.

    All I can think of right now is how I like the theme song for Southland a lot, but it's not a song with lyircs... I also think The Office has a nice catchy tune for it's theme song.

    Sorry, lame answers, but I'm blanking! lol

  2. Wowza...what a blast to the past! Love all of these theme songs and I know this is completely dorkish but I love the Brady Bunch theme...kind of catchy don't you think?!

    Have a fabulous weekend!


  3. Wonderful themes songs! Have a wonderful weekend too - love to Toots!


  4. LOL! The 21 Jump Street theme has been stuck in my head since I started watching it! And oh no! Not Greatest American Hero now too! Wow! Was never a fan of Full House. I love the theme song to Starblazers! Still remember all the words too! LOL! what a geek I am!

  5. The loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee boat....sooooooooooo exciting and newwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ... comeeeeeeeeeeeee aboard....we're expecting youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu....theeeeeeeeee loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee boat!!!!!

    i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeD that show...especially since there was a JULIE on that :):):):):):):):):):)

    And i might BE the ONLY one to ADMIT this...but hehehehehehehehehehehe giggle giggle *blush* i had me a little crush on mr. greatest american hero william katt! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  6. Great choices! Geez, why am I drawing a blank on this??? Let's see, the theme music from Alias was great, so was the theme for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I like 30 Rock's theme music. The Foo Fighters did the theme song from Ed a few years back, so that was really good. And I really like the song from the new show Life Unexpected. Wow - I actually named five!!! LOL Have a great night!!! Theresa :)

  7. Girl, every time I leave your Fab Fives, I end up humming some damn tune all weekend! Now it's the Love Boat, thanks a lot!!!!!!!!!
    Here's my fave theme song, you already know it- take a guess!

    DALLAS! We're on season 8, whoo hoooo, JJ and I are addicted to it and you HAVE to watch it too! lmao
    Johnny Depp, yummmmmmmmmy! lol How's that resin coming along, hahaha! xOxO

  8. Yeah, Love Boat was a big one, but my sister and I used to get down to the songs from Good Times and The Jeffersons! We still do a little "kid dyno-mite!" every now and then!

    I love this fab 5! Awesome! I should be singing Good Times all weekend now.

  9. My absolute favourite TV theme is "Dallas". It's also one of my favourite shows! My other favourites include Transformers, The X-Files & Punky Brewster.

    Great Fab Five, Maggi!! :)

  10. Okay, first off: Supernatural may not have a theme song, but do any of those other shows have electro-magnetic pulses, fire, demon lightening, menacing raven wings, or blood splatter in their opening sequences? Hmmm, missy? :-P

    Favorite theme songs: Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island, Friends (yes, I have to say it!), Beverly Hillbillies, Charlie's Angels, Magnum PI...this one may not count, but I really liked it when CSI first premiered and there was The Who. It totally fit. Then they cheapened it by using other Who songs on the 2 not-so-fantastic spin-offs (or in the case of CSI Miami, really crappy spin-off).


  11. Ooh! How could I forget Buffy and Angel? That opening cello on the Angel theme was fantastic!

  12. OMG! I forgot Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, The Smurfs, Spongebob you think maybe I have watched too much TV in my life? LOL

  13. Great, now I'll have the Love Boat theme stuck in my head allllll day long! ;o)

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

  14. Most of those are a bit before my time, but I did love the Full House theme!!

    I was also a sucker for Family Matters (anyone know what happened to little Judy, btw??)

    And, of course, Step by Step.

    Oh, TGIF nights. How I miss you.

    Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

  17. I'm absolutely loving the LOVE BOAT and Full house - so much fun!
