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?

Whatever else you can say about this LP, you just HAVE to dig on the rendition of Micheal Landon on the cover. Outrageous! (10-29-2006)

I'm looking for a show that had the theme song that either was or sounded like Air Supply's song "even the nights are better" Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Charnie (10-12-2006)

Of course the Sanford and Son theme is good you big dummy! You'd have to work pretty hard to bungle a Quincy Jones tune. Oh yeah, and do you know where I can find the theme song to "You People Are All Stupid"? (09-26-2006)

Spanish Flea was a tune recorded by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. It first appeared on their album "Going Places." Believe it or not, the lyrics that Homer Simpson sang to it are the original lyrics in the sheet music--although Herb Alpert's version was an instrumental. The album came first. Any TV usage was later! (09-11-2006)

If anyone can find this song it'll be much appreciated, please email me at archon2ki7@hotmail.com and/or post here =] (09-01-2006)

I bought this album way back when I was 11 or 12. At that time, I enjoyed the songs, but even then I realized that they weren't the originals. It's clear to me now that the artist who produced the front cover art was not very good at likenesses-- and probably didn't even try very hard! Almost none of them look much like the real people. It was neat to see the cover again, the album having been lost a long time ago. (08-30-2006)

Peter Ross (as011g3327@blueyonder.co.uk) says:
Anyone remember a 'French' I think 70's Saturday morning TV show. Swashbuckling stuff that started with a guy riding a horse over a beach and it had a very strong theme. I remember some of the lyrics... "And now that we have done its all worth fighting for..."

Something like that. (07-09-2006)
