OMG I agree! Ringo was not the best singer in the group, but I liked his version MUCH better!

As for other theme songs I dislike, I was annoyed by the one from Seinfeld. I know, it wasn't really a "song" and didn't last long--but maybe those things were the problem. And although I looooove Will Smith and Fresh Prince of Belair was one of my favorites, I didn't care for hearing that song every week LOL! It was cute and funny a few times, then it started to grate!

Reaching back a bit, the theme to Welcome Back Kotter was another one that was overplayed (on the radio, even!) and began to get on my nerves.

Actually I know what you mean about TWY's theme song, but Joe Cocker's version is considered a classic as much as the Beatles is. Guess you had to live in that time to appreciate Joe!!

The one I CAN'T STAND is the theme from The Facts Of Life!!!!

It doesn't surprise me since I can't stand the goof who wrote it either - Alan Thicke! He brags that it took him only minutes to write - no sh*t sherlock!! It sounds like it too! And could they find more annoying singers??!! ARRRGH!

TripperFan, I took a look to see if you posted the year you were born on your profile, and OMG I am older than you (though it pains me to have to admit it LOL)! I remember Joe Cocker, just never did like his voice.

I didn't think ANYONE was older than me on these boards!! Sometimes it feels like it!!

Yeah, it had to grow on me, and even at that, I still scratch my head as to how he got to be so famous with that scratchy voice! I guess I was influenced a bit by an older brother's girlfriend who just loved him. I like Little Help better than his version of "You Are So Beautiful" but that was a top 10 hit???? Go figure!! I always liked Belushi's take on him on SNL tho!

I think why that song got used is because it was from the period - everyone knew the song and its about "friends" which is the central focus of the show -Kevin growing up and interacting with friends. I'm sure they would have used the Beatles version had they been allowed, but before McCartney "sold his soul to the devil" (MJ buying the Beatles catalog) they didn't allow their music to be played for commercial purposes. Hence, the use of Cocker's version.

Hey - as popular as they are, I still scratch my head over some of Janis' songs and for the life of me, can't see what everyone sees in Alanis Morrisette (sp?) (Her voice is like nails on a blackboard to me - luckiest Canadian on earth)!!

Oh I know, don't get me started on the vast majority of the people who have become popular singers--especially in recent years LOL!

Thank God there's someone else out there like me!! I cringe at the crap that's popular especially today! Makes me wonder what's happened to the music industry.

I must be the only person who doesn't like Prince either! Especially that "When Doves Fly" (or something like that)? Where the hell did that voice come from? Even women can't "sing" that high? He doesn't need any fans - he loves himself enough for everyone!!


hhhmmmmmmm....I'm thinking this could make a whole new thread!!

Default Which theme song do you DISLIKE the most? Reply to Thread

There's been so much talk about the Fresh Prince and the Wonder Years on this thread, I might add a theme I really hate:

Does anybody besides me remember how crappy and truly horrbile the theme and show to "Dear John" was? The opening was reeeeeeaaaaaallly sucky! But not as sucky as those lyrics the woman sings! Deeeeeaar John! Deeeeaar John! Ugh! Does anyone else remember that PoS!

Here's another one I hated just as much as Dear John: The theme for "That '70s Show", especially the version with Cheap Trick.

Those are just two of my most hated themes EVER!

I could NOT STAND Gimme a Break's theme. I know someone who always used to say, "I'll give ya a break... in your teeth!" to the TV whenever that song came on.

The Facts of Life was also bad. What was it with NBC and the early 80s themes? (Except for CHiPs... that rocked.)

OMG! Don't even remind me of that PoS! I can't stand Nell's screeching voice in that song! Same way w/ Linda Lavin & Alice. (No offense, but I don't like Linda Lavin singing that theme.)
