Question Does Anybody Think The Theme To 'Laverne & Shirley' Should've Been Different?

The theme song itself is fine, but seeing how it was set in the 50's, shouldn't the theme song had a 50's vibe to it? Anybody agree or disagree?

Here is the theme song as is...

Making Our Dreams Come True

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!
We're gonna do it!

Give us any chance, we'll take it
Give us any rule, we'll break it
We're gonna make our dreams come true
Doin' it our way

Nothin's gonna turn us back now
Straight ahead and on the track now
We're gonna make our dreams come true
Doin' it our way

There is nothing we won't try
Never heard the word impossible
This time there's no stopping us
We're gonna do it

On your mark, get set, and go now
Got a dream and we just know now
We're gonna make our dream come true
And we'll do it our way, yes our way
Make all our dreams come true
And do it our way, yes our way
Make all our dreams come true
For me and you

I think the theme song is appropriate, it's light and bouncy like the theme for Happy Days. The singer of "Making Our Dreams Come True" is Cyndi Grecco, she had an album out in 1976 with this same title and as far as I know that was her only album.

The words to the theme fit the show perfectly. I wonder how it would have sounded if they would have done a 50's do-wop version of it.

^ A 50s doo wop version of "Making Our Dreams Come True" would've been awesome to hear. Otherwise, the song was perfect for the show. I can't imagine another theme for L&S.
