Everyone usually has more than a few favorite television sitcoms from the past but what about the music for sitcoms? Do you have a list of musical sitcom tunes that, whenever you hear them, seem to bring a smile to your face?
I’m sure intro tunes from top hit shows like Good Times and The Jeffersons might be on your list but would they be in your top three? I have a few like Phoebe Snow’s version of A Different World but, believe it or not, “Welcome Back” from the Welcome Back Kotter show would be my number one pick. The song became a #1 hit in 1976 for singer John Sebastian.
The Moonlighting theme song with Al Jarreau on vocals would follow that as well as the Family Ties intro song “Without Us,” sung by Deniece Williams and Johnny Mathis.
So tell me, what’s on your list? Would the Queen Latifah rap song from Living Single be on there or maybe Different Strokes? Don’t forget 227, Family Matters, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lavern & Shirley, Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, Save By The Bell, Amen, etc…
Below are the Moonlighting and Family Ties songs.
