theme songs

I think around Monday I made some comment about how my immune system outsmarted all the illnesses floating around as I tilted my head back and did an evil laugh. Take that flu season!

Two days later...sicker than a dog.

Yep, so I've been plopped in front of the television for the past couple of days watching an unhealthy amount of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" while pug eats away at the house and I could care less. And I've learned that although I can never seem to remember where I put my car keys or if I turned the hair straightener off, I have an outstanding memory for sitcom theme songs I haven't heard in decades. Is there a game show for that?

There really should be.

So, I'm realizing this blog post is not going where I had intended it to go. I was going to have y'all reminisce with me on your favorite 80's & 90's sitcoms, but now I'm curious as to hear what sitcom music you're still hanging on to.

Now after I list these they're all going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day...
1. "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"
2. "Golden Girls"- I know my Golden Girls buddy will know this one!
3. "Family Matters"
4. "Full House"
5. "Designing Women"- that one's kind of no fair since it's a real song.
6. "Friends"
7. "Saved by the Bell"
8. "Step by Step"- I seriously miss TGIF
9. "Who's the Boss?"
10. "Growing Pains"

I can't wait to hear your list or a few of your favorites.

P.S.- Does anyone know if they still show "Perfect Strangers" or "Mr. Belvedere"?

“Thank you for being a friend, travel down the road and back again….” Okay, I’ll stop now, haha!!!!! I own a season on DVD and PROUD of it!!!! :o)

Oh my goodness! I remember all of these songs!!! We were TGIF FANATICS in our house!! I had forgotten about Mr. Belvedere and Perfect Strangers, too.
Hope you are feeling better!!!
P.S. "And I thought, no forget it...Yo holmes, to Bel Air!!!"

Loved seeing this list!! I was hoping SAved by the bell would be on there! Theme songs now a days for me have something to do with cartoons!

Rebecca Jo said...

Those are great... I always sing "the Facts of Life"...

Niki said...

Love the post!! That would be my list too! I am always thinking to myself, how do you have so much room in your memory for theme songs?!? Glad I'm not the only one!!

Amanda said...

Oh my gosh, we loved Perfect Strangers so much! We were big fans of Balkey, or however you spell it.

Erin said...

Don't feel bad. I too know all the words to most of those theme songs...

And by the way, I watched Full House this afternoon.

There totally should be a game show. We would rock.

Left something for you on my blog!

Growing Pains! Hope you get to feeling better soon.

I don't know if this counts, but I always sing the Fraggle Rock song. "Catch your cares away, worries for another day. Let the music play (clap, clap) down in Fraggle Rock!" LOL! And does anybody remember when Just The Ten Of Us was on TGIF?? I so want to watch that show again!
