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?

What are those chords for "Maybe" the Grizzly Adams Theme??? (09-15-2003)

This has to be the WHITEST, corniest version of ONE DAY AT A TIME one could ever imagine. It's bad enough that they took the hot gospel style of the original version and turned it into a Country-Western, but there is no rhythm whatsofind you and the words are screwed up. The correct lyrics are SO UP ON YOUR FEET, not SO WALK ON THE BEAT. Good Grief Charlie Brown! (08-21-2003)

the only drawing that actually looks like the person is Sabrina. (Well okay, they did a good job on Farrah's hair) but this cover has to be the absolute worst collection of caricatures I've ever seen.

Who was blonde on One Day at a Time? Ann was a redhead and both girls were brunette! (08-02-2003)

Austin Lee (Wutang6078@aol.com) says:
i found an old record with a beat up cover but plays flawlessly. its called "Duck Wars" and is "hosted" by Darwin the Dynamic Duck. It is a disco record. I was just letting whoever wanted the duck record know. However, my main concern is that i would like a copy of Themes from Hit TV Shows from someone if anyone would like to trade records or ill just pay. If anyone could let me know, id be much appreciative. PEACE. (03-31-2003)

I got Vol. 1 a few weeks ago at a flea market. It has a version of "Good Times" that sounds like it's sung by a Sammy Davis Jr. immitator. (03-25-2003)

Guess what, gang? I've been rummaging through various record stores and found "Irwin the Dynamic Duck's Duck Wars" If you thought these songs are bad, get this lp and listen to "We are the Champions/We Will Rock You". Their recreating of Brian May's infamous guitar solo should be a crime!!! (03-06-2003)

This is an insult to true Hawaii Five-O fans everywhere. If you want to hear a real tribute, check out the Radio Birdman CD on Sub-Pop records (SUBPOP.COM). Aloha Steve and Danno would have made McGarrett proud! (03-04-2003)
