Default The full FOL theme song

I wanted your inputs on the full theme song, available for listening here on YouTube. What are your thoughts?

I don't like the country/western parts, or the jazz parts, but I like the rest of it.

Its not bad. They should've used some of the season 1 lyrics instead of making up extra ones though.

Hmmmm, I dunno how I feel about this comment..... I don't think it's quite fair to the theme and the show.

To use the original lyrics somewhere in an extended theme with made up lyrics?

Well, thinking it over, I dunno...I can kinda see how they could be used. But, everything else was revamped for the new season 2, so why not revamp the theme? I like how we have two distinct themes for the classic first 4 seasons.

Oh of course! You never noticed her, standing behind Nancy? For 209 episodes?

No, the guy who made the video accidentally used a picture of Melissa Etheridge, and apparently doesn't know how to fix it.

I'm not sure how the mistake occurred, but I agree it's hard to confuse Melissa Etheridge and Lisa Whelchel.

I already know i'm in the teeny tiny minority about this, but I love and prefer the opening theme song from season 2 on. Mainly because this is the one I always remember and think about.

Remember, to those of us who watched in real time, the show still wasn't popular in season 1 and it really grew it's audience after season 2 so that's the theme song us "oldies" viewers will remember and most likely prefer.

The one change I remember they made after the first change was somewhere in the mid 80's where the singer fills the musical gap with "alllll about youuuuu!"---and when I sing it to myself, (yes I do that lol) I find myself doing that part too, so I must like it.
