TV Show Theme Songs: Where Have They Gone?
Something happened in the 1990s that changed the landscape of television drastically, and in my mind, for the worse. The TV show theme song died. No longer were there great lyrics like "Come and knock on my door" and "She's a small wonder" but instead short, instrumental pieces. I say we start a petition to the networks to get these campy and ridiculous songs back into the public consciousness. Imagine if shows like Lost or The Office had a theme song like those of the the old days? Or how about 24? "Twenty Four!... hours to go, gonna kick those terrorists to the floor...Twenty Four!.... not gonna stop to eat or go to the bathroom like I have before. Twenty Four!..." Now that's what I'm talking about! Let's get those petitions rolling!
