Becker Theme Song

Becker television series starring Ted Danson

Becker was an American television sitcom that aired on CBS from 1998 – 2004. It starred Ted Danson as Dr. John Becker, a brilliant but arrogant and constantly annoyed doctor who operates a small practice clinic in The Bronx, New York.

Technically there is no official theme song to the show, but the opening credits has a nice blues instrumental background featuring a free-scaling blues guitar backed by a Hammond piano.

Bruce Miller is credited for Becker’s music and Chips Swanson as its music editor; as to who really is behind that guitar, we do not know for sure. Below is a clip from YouTube featuring said instrumental.
