Download Instrumental At one time I worked with a cruise ship singer who insisted on doing 70’s sitcom themes. I hated it, but she was calling the shots and I was along for the ride. Night after night I “moved it on up” with The Jeffersons and boarded the Love Boat with promises of love “exciting and new”. However, she did do a killer version of Edith Bunker (as did Karen in later years). I had to be Archie, but that was easy.
And then there was this theme from the sitcom “Happy Days”. Richie Cunningham was no friend of mine – his sister was just sappy – Ralph had a big mouth – Potsie was (well, anybody named Potsie) – and Fonzie was like a guy I knew in high school… who beat me up… twice. I was no fan of the show but I liked the start-up music. So I didn’t mind (so much) playing this one for Miss Cruise Ship. If you are determined to perform television theme songs, you would do well to start with this one.
It’s a new day and an exciting time in our country! Be happy, you old dog! What the hell do you have to lose?
