Ten TV Shows With Themes Sung By A Main Character
Farm Living Was The Life For Him, Not So Much For Her
As 2019 came to an end, many publications looked back on the famous people who passed away during that year. We lost numerous musical artists, including Ginger Baker, Dr. John, and Leon Redbone.
Suffering perhaps even more memorable losses was the film industry, which bade farewell to the likes of Tim Conway, Rip Torn and Dihan Carroll. All three were preceded in death by one of the most famous actresses to conquer both the silver screen and television, the unforgettable Doris Day.
Not only did she work herself all the way up from a small farm near Cincinnati, but she also managed to flourish her acting skill in comedy and drama alike. Day also became the first star, male or female, to sing the theme of her own television series.
That song, "Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be)", grew so contagious that nearly every single person in America now understood at least two words of French. During the ensuing decades several other characters rook on the vocals for the themes of their TV shows, and here are ten of the most famous.
