36. All in the Family
Composer: Lee Adams and Charles Strouse
Artist: Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton
That’s two songs in a row sung by actors in the show itself, so that’s pretty neat. There’s a charm in having the actors sing the song as if they were singing it in their own living room without anyone else listening.
35. The Twilight Zone
Composer: Marius Constant
This one is here just because I’m in love with Rod Serling’s voice. The intro from season 2 is my favorite. “That’s the signpost up ahead!”
One thought on “Original Theme Songs: 36, 35”
As a kid I hated All in the Family – both the song and the show. Of course, I just couldn’t possibly appreciate either for what they presented at the time. As it happened, I didn’t see it again until after college, and realized it was one of the great comedies of any generation.
Ditto on Rod Serling’s voice.
