Hot in Cleveland Theme Song

2010 – present

Ah, the great Betty White.

Hot in Cleveland is the first all-original series of the cable network TV Land; given that, they’re doing quite good—already renewed for a third season.

It has a very short, 10-second title sequence that shows nothing but a play in the show’s logo—from “LA” to “CLEVELAND” (L.A. being the setting of the leads’ backgrounds).

The song is quite catchy though, and it makes you wish it was part of a full song. However, it is not. Not officially credited (as the composer of the title tune), composers Ron Wasserman and Emerson Swinford are the only known composers of the series to date.

We have encountered Mr. Wasserman before, most notably for the theme to Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. He also goes by his aliases Aaron Waters and The Mighty RAW.

Lyrics?

Yes, well, I guess it’s nothing buy “Pa, pa, pa, pa. Pa, pa, pa, pa. Hey!”

As for the performers, no information yet.

See below for the short title sequence.

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Theme Song

1993–1996

Talking about composer Ron Wasserman from the previous post led me to this theme song.

Possibly the only Power Ranger to experience post-Power Rangers success, Amy Jo Johnson, is now 40 years old. She can be seen currently in the Canadian television series Flashpoint.

Anyway, back to the theme song. As previously mentioned, Ron Wasserman composed the theme song for Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. It is also probably what he is best known for, even though he also created for Sweet Valley High, and the previously-posted X-Men animated series. He is also part of the band Fisher.

The official title of the theme song is “Go Go Power Rangers”. It was released as part of the album Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Album: A Rock Adventure, which was released in 1994. In the album, Mr. Wasserman credits himself as The Mighty RAW.

“Go Go Power Rangers” is available in both a long version and a show-edit version in the album, and even had a remix in the UK release.

Below is a version (it changed with the addition of new characters) of the original opening title sequence.

There’s this guy, DragoWolf, who compiled all the opening sequences in one video, but he disabled embedding.

Below is the full-length version of the song.

Here is a link to the remix version.

Power Rangers theme song lyrics

They’ve got a power and a force that you’ve never seen before
They’ve got the ability to morph and to even up the score
No one will ever take them down the power lies on their side

Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

They know the fate of the world is lying in their hands
They know to only use their weapons for defense
No one will ever take them down the power lies on their side

Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
You Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

No one will ever take them down the power lies on their side

Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Go Go Power Rangers
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Go Go Power Rangers

Go Go Power Rangers

Go Go Power Rangers

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers originally aired from August 28, 1993 to November 27, 2010 on FOX. It is currently (2010) being aired on ABC on the ABC Kids programming block, and whoa, someone already uploaded the ABC re-versioned opening sequence.

X-Men Theme Song

A quick message

Hey, hey, hey!

Hey, Happy New Year everybody! Time flies so fast and just like that, it is January 2. It has been a good 2010 for us here at Theme Songs, and we look forward to posting more this 2011. Anyway, from all of  us here, we wish you nothing but the best this 2011.

1992–1997; back to title post

So this post is primarily for the animated series, because that is what you think of when you hear “X-Men theme.”

The distinctive instrumental tune was written by Ron Wasserman. Oddly enough, the X-Men theme song is not his claim to fame, or what he is known best for. He also happened to write the theme for the Power Rangers series, so I guess that trumps that.

Ron Wasserman is also 1/2 of the duo/band, Fisher, along with Kathy Fisher. To be honest, I don’t really know what songs they are known for (check their Wikipedia here). It is also said that Mr. Wasserman frequently uses the aliases Aaron Waters and The Mighty RAW.

The song is not really part of any official releases, but it is available from some best-of TV themes albums and independent releases.

As for the films, well, it’s quite sad that the theme song did not make it to the big screen, but that’s not to say the films didn’t have great music. In X-Men (1), Michael Kamen scored the film, then John Ottoman for X2, and finally John Powell for X-Men: The Last Stand.
