The theme song from Super Fuzz is corny but infectious. The movie is mildly terrible but still fun and lighthearted. It was a quarantine rental. The Italian star is extremely handsome although his American accent is unconvincing. His cop buddy is Ernest Borgnine.

R5 The Simon and Simon theme is etched into my head not because I watched the show, but because for many years it preceded Knot's Landing on Thursday nights. I was in front of the tv every Thursday evening by 9:55.

I wonder how many other DL'ers that is true for.

I know it's corny, but I love the theme song from Green Acres. My BF bought a huge house out in the boondocks, and he's constantly sending me photos of different wildlife for me to identify, I started calling him Lisa Douglas, which he didn't like at all (at first) but he finally began to enjoy the humor, Now, when he calls and calls me 'Olivah!" that's his code that he's having some kind of wildlife crisis.

Not sure why R25 would consider the theme to Makin' It so awful. IMO it was a catchy song, no better or worse than most songs from the Disco era and it actually made its way to the Top 10 in the US and some other countries, staying near the tops of the charts for several weeks.
