My bud DeAngelo Starnes gave me this idea... by reminding me that old TV theme songs used to freakin’ rock!
There’s a reason why, too. They were often made by credentialed jazz musicians such as Nelson Riddle, Quincy Jones and Gil Melle. Alas, those days are over.
If you are past the age of 45, I bet these particular old TV theme songs will evoke nice memories:
1. “The Name of the Game” – Dave Grusin
2. “Medical Center” – Lalo Schifrin
3. “Daktari” – Shelley Manne
4. “Space: 1999” – Barry Gray
