Tom Hanks and the cast of Bosom Buddies did sing the theme song My Life. If you listen closely, you can tell.

Hanks sang the theme. He's even admitted so in the past. It's just that you have to listen closely to tell it's his voice and not some random studio musician from that era.

The Fall Guy's definitely in my all-time Top 20. So is Mary Tyler Moore.

Great. Now I have The Fall Guy theme going through my head - complete with words. I didn't even know they were still in there.

I hope that he didn't sing to her while they were married.

The theme was great. Heather Thomas walking through a pair of swinging doors wearing a flimsy bikini that would be smokin' hot now?

Even greater.

Mine too. It came very close to cracking my top ten. If someone other than Majors (who made Burt Reynolds look like Roy Orbison) had sung it, it would have probably made my top five.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

I have a nagging feeling I'm forgetting an important one, but here are five in some sort of order:

The Muppet Show
The Monkees
Gilligan's Island
George of the Jungle
Tom Slick

Plus a bonus:

When Things Were Rotten

...or two:
Super Chicken

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.


Season Five, also my favorite season of the show.

The complete version, which was sometimes played in season two.



Always loved The Cosby Show. This was the best version of the show's theme, I think.


This series was short-lived, but from what I saw, VERY funny. The poster of the video was incorrect and the show actually aired in 1986. I always thought this theme would go well with the opening to The Golden Girls.

I guess you missed the part about the songs having to have lyrics that are sung.
