  • Theme Song

    What is the best theme song.

    I'm going with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.



    Lengthened Version

    Now this is a story all about how
    my life got flipped turned upside down
    and I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
    I'll tell you how i became the prince of a town called Bel-Air

    In west Philadelphia born and raised
    on the playground is where i spent most my days
    chillin out maxin and relaxin all cool
    and all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
    when a couple of who were up to no good
    started making trouble in my neighborhood
    I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
    and said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"

    I begged and pleaded with her the other day
    but she packed my suitecase and sent me on my way
    she gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket
    i put my walkman on and said i might as well kick it

    First class yo this is bad
    drinkin orange juice out of a champagne glass
    is this what the people on bel-air livin like
    hmmm... this might be alright

    But wait I hear the prissy brews wine all that
    is this the type of place where they should sent this cool cat
    I dont think so ill see when i get there
    I hope to prepare for the prince of bel-air

    Well. .. .uh
    the plane landed and when i came out
    there was a dude look like a cop standin there wit my name out
    i aint tryin to get arrested i just got here
    i spring like the quickness of lightning disappear
    i whistle for a cab and when it came near
    the liscence place said fresh
    and had a dice in the mirror
    if anything i could say that this cab was rare
    but i thought man forget yo homes to bel-air

    i pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
    and i yelled to the cab yo homes smell you lata
    i looked at my kingdom i was finally there
    to settle my thrown as the prince of bel-air

      For me either 'Burning Bridges' from Kelly's Heros, 'Suicide is Painless' from M*A*S*H or 'The Self Preservation Society' from The (Original) Italian Job.

        In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. They promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no-one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

              The Ballad of Serenity

              Take my love, take my land
              Take me where I cannot stand
              I don't care, I'm still free
              You can't take the sky from me


              Take me out to the black
              Tell them I ain't coming back
              Burn the land and boil the sea
              You can't take the sky from me


              There's no place I can be
              Since I found Serenity
              But you can't take the sky from me


              Not so much at first but it really gets in head after a few episodes.

                Yep, I love that song now. I never fast forward through it when watching the series on DVD.


                Some of my faves were from Cheers and The Greatest American Hero. I also enjoy the ones from Buffy and Angel.

                I'm sure there are others than aren't immediately coming to mind.

                  The theme from "Hill Street Blues".

                  The one from M*A*S*H was very good.

                  Cheers and & Night Court also had excellent pieces of msuic that could stand on their own.

                      You woke up this morning
                      Got yourself a gun,
                      Mama always said you'd be
                      The Chosen One.

                      She said: You're one in a million
                      You've got to burn to shine,
                      But you were born under a bad sign,
                      With a blue moon in your eyes.

                      You woke up this morning
                      All the love has gone,
                      Your Papa never told you
                      About right and wrong.

                      But you're looking good, baby,
                      I believe you're feeling fine, (shame about it),
                      Born under a bad sign
                      With a blue moon in your eyes.

                      You woke up this morning
                      The world turned upside down,
                      Thing's ain't been the same
                      Since the Blues walked into town.

                      But you're one in a million
                      You've got that shotgun shine.
                      Born under a bad sign,
                      With a blue moon in your eyes.

                      When you woke up this morning everything you had was
                      gone. By half past ten your head was going ding-dong.
                      Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
                      like a voice telling you there was something you should
                      know. Last night you were flying but today you're so low
                      - ain't it times like these that make you wonder if
                      you'll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to
                      the others; wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and
                      brothers. Don't you wish you didn't function, wish you
                      didn't think beyond the next paycheck and the next little
                      drink' Well you do so make up your mind to go on, 'cos
                      when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.

                      When you woke up this morning,
                      When you woke up this morning,
                      When you woke up this morning,
                      Mama said you'd be the Chosen One.

                      When you woke up this morning,
                      When you woke up this morning,
                      When you woke up this morning,
                      You got yourself a gun.

                              What about the Dukes of Hazzard?
                              Good Ol' Boys

                              By Waylon Jennings


                              Just the good ol' boys,
                              Never meanin' no harm,
                              Beats all you've ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was born.

                              Straight'nin' the curve,
                              Flat'nin' the hills.
                              Someday the moutain might get 'em, but the law never will.

                              Makin' their way,
                              The only way they know how,
                              That's just a little bit more than the law will allow.

                              Just good ol' boys,
                              Wouldn't change if they could,
                              Fightin' the system like a true modern day Robin Hood.
