Another musical challenge over a Jingle, Jangle, Jungle who created this fun challenge where you don't need to be a musical aficionado to join in. I'm learning a lot from the others. So here are the 3 themes she chose this week.
1. TV Theme
2. A Coin
3. Time of day
1. BEWITCHED WRITTEN BY JACK KELLER & HOWARD GREENFIELD-1964
I love this tv show and I love the song so much. I find it sparkling, sophisticated and just fun. It is from another era that I miss. Have any of you noticed that the tv theme song seems to have gone by the wayside. They just play a couple of bars and start the show. We no longer hear a song or see the names of the people before the show started. I miss that.
2. 10 CENTS A DANCE SUNG BY RUTH ETTING BY ROGERS & HART-1930
This song was made famous by Ruth Etting and her life was quite a dramatic one made famous by the film, "Love Me Or Leave Me" starring Doris Day and James Cagney. I heard her sing this song when I was a kid and I loved it...yeah, I guess I was a weird kid.
3. TUESDAY AFTERNOON BY THE MOODY BLUES-1967
I didn't hear about the Moody Blues until I was in High School and when I heard "Nights in White Satin", I had to learn more. I bought the record and was enthralled. I consider it one of the best albums ever and this song is just so good. It has a melancholy tone to it...to me anyway.
What would you pick and do you think TV shows today are into the fad of not truly having a theme song? I love the Game of Thrones theme so am I just missing them all because they are on the 30,000 streaming networks?
