New poll: Best 1960s sitcom theme with lyrics
I watched more sitcoms than action shows growing up, and I remembered so many themes that I'm splitting it up into decades and with and without lyrics. The first heat is the 1960s sitcoms with lyrics. We have 11 candidates and you can vote for more than one. Remember that the vote is about the theme song, not about the show.
The Addams Family
The Beverly Hillbillies
Car 54 Where Are You?
The Patty Duke Show
What is available on The You Tubes is always a crazy crap shoot. Every one of these songs is on the popular website except the version with lyrics of Green Acres. The video I link to is a little baby bouncing up and down to the closing theme. I also found a few of the theme songs with plugs for the commercials included. Remember, kids, just because you vote for The Beverly Hillibillies theme song doesn't mean you have to smoke Winstons.
I also loved the tag line to the included Ivory Liquid ad at the end of the Petticoat Junction theme song: So pure, so white, so mild.
Sounds like the person the Republicans wish Obama had nominated to the Supreme Court.
Here are the tunes that just missed the cut:
My Mother the Car
It's About Time
The Real McCoys
Don't forget to vote on the action theme songs if you haven't already. The sixties sitcoms without lyrics are going up later this evening.
