Themes From Hit TV Shows

Peter Pan records presents your favorite TV themes.

The music on this Peter Pan record is a lot like the cover art: bland, homogenous, and bearing only a mild resemblence to the original article. Millions of kids across the country must have been vaguely disappointed when they figured out that these low-budget arrangements of their favorite TV themes were decidedly not the original songs by the original artists. Who wouldn't have been at least slightly let down to discover that they'd just purchased a version of the Six Million Dollar Man theme that skips over the entire spoken-word introduction?

I have learned that there's usually a gem in every box of junk, and the prize on this one is probably the Hawaii Five-O theme, a tune which the "Pop Singers and Orchestra" take right over the top and back.

If only I had the two releases advertised on the back of the jacket -- Themes from Hit TV Shows Volume 1, and something called Disco Duck Dance Party -- my life would be (almost) complete. Thanks, Peter Pan, wherever you are!

Hawaii Five-O (MP3) One of the craziest renditions of the classic Ventures tune anywhere!
Sanford and Son (MP3) The Sanford and Son theme is so funky that even this cheezebox rendition is pretty good.
One Day at a Time (Real Audio) I didn't know One Day at a Time was a country song -- did you?

Odd, Ive been trying to solve the mystery of which tv show the Spanish Flea belonged to as well. It possibly could be Man about the House, but I'm not sure. (05-03-2005)

Looking for the name of an instumental musical piece that CBS used for one of it's late night movies, late show etc...themes It had a starfield like image on the screen in late 70's early 80's. It was the opening of the movie before they told you what the movie was going to be. This is driving me mad that I can't think of it. (03-26-2005)

The TV show Providence uses 2 different theme
songs - 'In My Life' by John Lennon(Beatles), and
'You Make Me Home' by Angelica Hayden. My Mom
watches this show in the U.S (Calif) and the John Lennon song is the theme. I watch the
show in Holland and the Angelica Hayden song is
used as the theme. Don't know why this is, but
hope it helps! (02-23-2005)

Did you know that Quincy Jones wrote the Sanford and Sons theme? He did Ironsides and the first Cosby show (1960's), too. The man was everywhere and I'd like to meet his tailor. (11-16-2004)

I had no idea until now groups did covers on TV show themes. I guess song-mercials were needed in addition to TV commercials. Far out. :) (10-14-2004)
