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!

Songs:

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?

If anyone out there knows the theme song to a show that was on in the 90's called "Brooklyn Bridge" I would very much appreciate it. I believe it was written by Art Garfunkel. But my husband(he is the one who wants it) can't find it anywhere. Thanks in advance. (03-19-2004)

i need the theme song for the ABC tv "The Practice". i'ts kinda like a trance song, it's kinda slow but it's got a good beat. please let me know if u know what im talking about (01-19-2004)

Mr. Ed says:
Yes, that was really me singing the opening theme song to my show. I learned my singing ability from Donny and Marie. Marie would pinch my testicles in order for me to hit the "high" notes. Gawd I loved that. Wilbur refused to do that for me. After all I done for him, and he wouldn't put my nuts in his hand. Gawd, it is enough to make a horse cry. Well, anyway, I am now 112 years old, and living on a stud farm. I want to thank all of those who voted for me in the California Governors race. I lost to Arnold by only a mere 1 million votes. I promise I will do better next time, if only wilber would but my nuts in his hand. I have to go, there is a philly in the next stall that I want to bang. (01-02-2004)

Craig (craig.thomlinson@alphameric.com) says:
Does anybody remember a TV show which Elvis's 'Guitar Man' was the theme ?
Seem to remember it was set in Mexico with a georgeos girl on the run from bad guys. Think there was a motorbike in their too. It was a comedy as well I think.

Oh. My. God.

I used to OWN THIS!!!!

And yes, it was definitely cheesy. But hey, I was, what, 9, 10 years old, something like that. It was okay by me back then. Today I'd be pickier.

Never thought I'd ever see that album cover again. My God.

And when did they throw a mustache on the Six Million Dollar Man? Was that second season? He looks like Magnum. (09-30-2003)
