I agree it was as bad as the show it was made for, it literally sounded like someone just threw it together in 5 minutes and it was played on one of those cheap Casio keyboards you buy at a garage sale for $10.

Sweet Jebus, I forgot how bad the Roper's theme was.

I can't beleive that I forgot how bad the Enterprise theme song was. "Faith of the heart..."

Yes! I've never understood how Linda Lavin's shrill voice was appealing to anyone.

Here's the worst TV theme ever. Before you hit "play": you have been warned!

Yeah, I like The Brady Bunch, I like Florence Henderson and I think she was a good singer, but I’ve got to believe she was rolling her eyes in the recording both when she sang some of those lines.

I snuck a few episodes of the original CBS run of The Bradys (I think it was on past my bedtime), and I only remember the instrumental theme song. I must’ve missed the episode(s) that used this monstrosity.

Gadzooks, I bet this theme song sold a lot of TVs with remotes back in 1979. Imagine being stuck on your couch with no remote when this thing came on.

I know I would have invested in a remote!

(As it turns out, this show lasted only a single episode in the US).

I don't know what's worse: the screechy singing, or the "rhymes" (quarter/daughter).
