6. Duck Tales
Composer: Mark Mueller
Artist: Jeff Pescetto
Not surprisingly, the same guy also wrote the theme to Rescue Rangers. I don’t know what it is about this theme I love so much. It doesn’t blow you out of the water with powerful vocals, witty lyrics, or a grand orchestra. I think it just puts me in a really good mood with all the energy and crescendos.
5. Welcome Back Kotter
Composer: John Sebastian
Artist: John Sebastian
I do like me some Lovin’ Spoonful, so it’s not surprising I love this theme. More than his voice, though, I appreciate how the song encapsulates the theme of the show without mentioning any character names. It’s definitely high on cheese, but so is the show. Up your nose with a rubber hose! Indeed.
For what it’s worth, this song reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 in 1976.
