John Barry - “The Persuaders”
Jaco did this, and I think it's Michael Brecker on the tenor sax solo.
[EDIT] I also think it's Hirham Bullock on guitar.
As a kid, I loved this show:
Not a real 70's show though.
Not a theme song but I always loved this one:
They say smell is the sense linked closest to memory which is why most people recall their mother's kitchen or their dad's aftershave. But I think music runs a close second especially, obviously, among musicians, and instrumental music even more so. That old-timey piano with the flourishes somehow made a kid wistful and nostalgic for an era in which he never lived...after a comedy it signaled that the laughs were over and that only memories were left (in keeping with the more famous opening theme). The visual of the row houses, one after the other, was a bit of a downer implying the anonymity and sameness of it all (a feeling I have actively tried to avoid all my life) but perhaps it was a suggestion that inside each house was a family with as many stories as the Bunkers.
It seems TV experts ie producers have forgotten how to build and retain an audience through conditioning. The mania for packing in adverts and promos is an exercise in ADD. Now shows close with a couple of credits/title cards and the rest of it is squeezed over as other network shows are plugged. There certainly isn't any closing music.
I remember this set of visuals well. Little girl 'Joey' who did a star turn opposite Kermit can be see briefly in the blue shirt and pigtails. Unfortunately, the entire opening makes the US look like a poverty-stricken hellhole.
Barry De Vorzon again!
Chuck Berghofer on bass....Dan Ferguson on guitar.
Well the thread title was best 70's Show theme song and That 70's Show had two versions of the same song over the run of the series. @jblake and I were not exactly wrong to post what we did.
Real answer? Sanford And Son.
Not the title....
"Best 70's TV Show" not "Best 70's Show" HA HA
Eh close enough.
Not for anything but...most of these are awesome.
They beat the hell out of "Orange in the New Black" theme....I cannot skip that intro fast enough. Geez....
Couldn't find the original from 1975 but always loved the opening and closing music for SNL
It's a toss up between MASH, Night Court, Barney Miller, Mannix, and the Jetsons.
The Barney Miller theme had some snappy music, and an epic solo by the late great Tommy Tedesco.
Such a great little tune.
