Overthinkers, today I’ll leave off the deep analysis and instead turn to some heavy lifting.
It’s something that I can only do after years of training, but it’s something you all need to be able to do. It’s your duty.
I don’t want to hear any of you thinking to yourselves, “Wait, is that the theme song to Family Ties? Wait, no, I think it’s Growing Pains. I’m certain. I think.” ever again.
Probably half your generation ask themselves that question at least once a year. Only you can help them.
Once you’re sure you’ve got it – and I mean really sure you’ve got it, be proud. You are now an overthinker. The best is ready to begin! Sha la la la!
Here is your reward!
Nice job, two of the three links don’t work. ;p
But do people seriously get those themes confused? I mean, damn…
I’ve long thought it criminal that the age of the over-produced and schmaltzy theme song has passed and the best we get is the first two seasons of The Unit’s theme song (Fired Up … Feels Good) and the lesser quality Walk the Fire from seasons three and four. God I miss the eighties.
OK, I must amend my prior statement. How I forgot about the masterful Barenaked Ladies joint composed for the equally masterful The Big Bang Theory, I’ll never know. Nor shall I forgive myself for the lapse. It doesn’t have the same endearing cloying sap of the aforementioned sitcoms, but it at least keeps the relevant-to-the-subject-matter-of-the-show theme song tradition alive and breathing.
Also, if you are not watching The Big Bang Theory, it is the show we geeks have been waiting for all our lives.
