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?

I enjoy the page! Some truly...odd things here. For the record, the Ventures had a hit version of this song, but that was not the original. I rather like the harmonica player on the Sanford and Son there. To email me, lose the nosir. (01-07-1999)

Mario (hart2hart@okay.net) says:
Hi everybody, I am looking for all music tunes from the series and following 8 movies "HART TO HART". I can exchange in over 600 tv themes and remixspecials from all categories. Thanks for answering. Take care, Mario (01-03-1999)

Sir Droopy Drawers says:
Here is yet another "handy" tip for Sir Droopy Drawers. If you are sitting at your computer and your butt starts to hurt. Just take a bunch of these albums and put them on your chair, then sit on it. It works for me. My butt hasn't hurt for years!!! Only one drawback,...... everytime I fart, the theme from "The Gong Show" comes out of my ass! Let's see Jamie Farr beat that!!!! I welcome your comments......Please excuse me, my asylum awaits for me. (12-17-1998)
