I spent last night relaxing on Youtube searching and listening to theme tunes from 70s tv series (I have penchant for 70s movies as well). Some of them I have not heard in years and it surprised me how much they stirred up dormant feel-good thoughts and emotions from that era (I was only a kid/teen during the 70s). Did you live through the 70s? Which theme tunes instantly take you back? They might not necessarily be your favourites (my all-time favourite is Starsky & Hutch).

To comply with T&Cs relating to DMCA requirements, I think you can only post theme tunes (not episodes).

Space: 1999 Martin Landau, Barbara Bain, Nick Tate

70s cgi made me chuckle



McMillan & Wife Rock Hudson & Susan Saint James


Alias Smith and Jones Pete Duel & Ben Murphy


The Persuaders Tony Curtis and Roger Moore


ChiPs Larry Wilcox & Erik Estrada


Logans Run Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan

I can almost smell the 70s when I hear this.


And being an early teen with this.


Who can forget.

I didn't even realize there was a full season of Logan's Run. Thanks for putting that up. I have 14 episodes of TV to watch!

I was too young to remember much TV from the 70s other than what begged to stay up to watch. Like Star trek re runs.

This show stuck in my mind so much though, I bought all of the available episodes on Amazon a couple years ago:




I do remember being very annoyed when these specials took up TV time:

Yep, and Denis Waterman provided the singing, maybe the song even!

I always liked the mix of electronic, raw guitar, wind orchestra sounds in The Rockford Files,

Sitcoms, then or now, indoctrinating our minds what to think, how to behave.

No they weren't, it was a period of some reflection already over the 60's. In Britain the 70's and into the 80's were all about people, mass striking and pretty brutal government really for those who would strike. However TV in general did strive to entertain those who had to listen to all the crap stuff on the news. The Beeb was good in those days, some of the very best of sitcom, very real in reflecting life, while comedic, and mostly non PC without being ignorant...banter, a word that some just don't seem to understand these days.
Not many characters about these days, plenty of shiiteheads though.

Personally, I like 1970's women's prison movies.

Not sure if that ever came to Britain, but I remember seeing that sequence on youtube whatever, and for some reason I always thought...they should leave that dead guy in front of the saloon where he is, a brilliant place to park your bike.
Isn't the mind funny?

I got my 11 y/o son hooked on Green Acres. He loves the theme song. I downloaded seasons from Amazon Video.
I go back when I hear the theme song from Hogan's Heroes and Perry Mason.

UPDATE:
Now the theme from Wild Wild West is playing in my head... dammit.

The whole entertainment thing is designed to draw as many people from across as big a spectrum as possible, wait for it... to hear the news. Joseph Goebbels refined it during the dawn of mass communication, radio. Theres this speech he gave to the world radio convention where he lays it out. The world has never been the same since...

I was doing the exact same thing the other night. It started at work, talking to a coworker about the old show "Run Joe Run"

He played the opening on his phone. I went home and looked it up and sat there for an hour or more looking at tv shows from the 70s.

Any body else remember Run Joe Run? A dog accused of a crime he did not commit. lol
