Jonas L.A. Theme Song


Let’s go Disney all the way today.

So wait, let me get this straight, Jonas L.A. was originally just “Jonas”, right? I believe they changed the show’s name and added “L.A.” for the second season.

Watching and listening to both seasons’ openings made me realize it had the same theme song. So, in reality, this post also works out as “Jonas Theme Song“.

The JONAS Theme Song

The theme song for the Jonas show, obviously starring the Jonas brothers, is entitled “Live to Party”. It was performed by the Jonas Brothers (yes, that’s the name of their band, how clever). Writing is also credited to the three of them—Kevin Jonas, Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas.

The song is also commercially available as part of the Disney Channel Playlist album, which we first came across with in the previous post.

Jonas L.A. (season 2) has an official soundtrack, but ironically it does not contain “Live to Party”. I’m still quite confused with the season 1 soundtrack—I read some references to it but I couldn’t find it being sold anywhere. Will clarify this later.

Anyway, below is the opening for season one (JONAS).

Below is the opening sequence for season two (Jonas L.A.).

JONAS & Jonas L.A. theme song lyrics

Show edit.

I was sitting at home
Watching TV all alone
So tired of routines
The day goes on and on

So I pick up the phone
Call everyone I know
Said there’s gonna be a party
Hit the music here we go


We’re gonna live to party
Bust your move
Everybody’s in the groove
Tell the DJ to play my song
Are you ready to rock n’ roll

We’re gonna live to party
Bust your move
Everybody’s in the groove

Live to party!

Sonny with a Chance Theme Song


It’s funny how many television shows you discover without actually watching television. Like this one for example, which I only discovered walking past my niece’s bedroom. The theme song instantly caught my attention so I took note to write about it someday.

And now here we are. Sonny with a Chance is a Disney show that stars Demi Lovato—her I know. It has a nice opening sequence and theme, reminiscent of classic kid’s shows. I’m just glad the 5-second opening fever has not caught up with shows for the young ones.

The theme song is entitled “So Far, So Great”. It was composed by Jeanne Lurie, Chen Neeman and Aristedis Archontis, staples in the Disney-owned Hollywood Records. The theme song was obviously performed by Ms. Lovato.

Commercially, the song (in full length) is available as part of Demi Lovato’s album, Here We Go Again—her second release, also via Hollywood Records. It is also featured in the compilation album, Disney Channel Playlist.

Update: On October 5, 2010, an official Sonny with a Chance soundtrack was released via Walt Disney Records. Obviously, it includes “So Far, So Great”.

Below is the opening sequence for the show.

Below is the full-length version of the song.

Sonny with a Chance theme song lyrics (show edit)

Off to the races
I’m going places
Might be a long shot
Not gonna waste it
This is the big break
And it’s calling my name

So far so great, get with it
At least that’s how I see it
Having a dream’s just the beginning
So far so great, believe it
Can’t take away this feeling
Taking a ride with chance to my side
Yeah, I can’t wait
So far, so great

So far, so great

The show edit is actually just the first verse and the chorus.

Hannah Montana Theme Song


Here’s one for the young ones.

The theme song for Hannah Montana, now on its final season, is entitled “The Best of Both Worlds.” It was written by Canadian Matthew Gerrard, Robbie Nevil, and John Carta, and obviously performed by Miley Cyrus. A full-length 2 minutes, 54 seconds version of the song is included in the show’s official soundtrack, released in October 2006.

The song’s lyrics describe the basic premise of the show.

Hannah Montana theme song lyrics (show edit)

You get the limo out front
Hottest styles, every shoe, every color

Yeah, when you’re famous it can be kinda fun
It’s really you but no one ever discovers

Who would of thought that a girl like me
Would double as a superstar

You get the best of both worlds
Chillin’ out, take it slow
Then you rock out the show

You get the best of both worlds
Mix it all together and you know that it’s the best of both worlds

Wizards of Waverly Place Theme Song


Selena Gomez is cute, huh?

It’s quite obvious that Selena Gomez sang this one. “Everything Is Not What It Seems” is the title of the theme song from Wizards of Waverly Place, and it was composed by John Adair and Steve Hampton.

The song is available in the official soundtrack, but that’s it, there is no full version, it only lasts 50 seconds. The soundtrack, however, has other Selena Gomez songs.

Wizards of Waverly Place theme song lyrics

Well you know everything’s gonna be a breeze
That the end will no doubt justify the means
You could fix any problem at the slightest ease
Yes, please

Well you might find out It’ll go to your head
When you write a report on a book you never read
With the snap of your fingers you can make your bed
That’s what I said

Everything is not what it seems
When you can get all you wanted in your wildest dreams
You might run into trouble if you go to extremes
Because everything is not what it seems

Everything is not what it seems
When you can get what you want by the simplest of means
Be careful not to mess with the balance of things
Because everything is not
What it seems

Phineas and Ferb Theme Song

Whatcha doin’?

For some reason, I most often turn on the television on this program, and I’ve learned to love it.

The theme song for Phineas and Ferb was written and performed by a well-known American band, Bowling for Soup. The song is entitled “Today Is Gonna Be a Great Day.” It is said that the band originally wrote a slower, “classic Disney song,” but the network felt they needed to appeal to modern children, hence the conception of the rock/alternative version.

In 2008, the song was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music, but eventually lost to the Pirate Master theme.

Phineas and Ferb theme song lyrics

There’s 104 days of summer vacation
And school comes along just to end it
So the annual problem for our generation
Is finding a good way to spend it

Like maybe…

Building a rocket
Or fighting a mummy
Or climbing up the Eiffel Tower

Discovering something that doesn’t exist (Hey!)
Or giving a monkey a shower

Surfing tidal waves
Creating nanobots
Or locating Frankenstein’s brain (It’s over here!)

Finding a dodo bird
Painting a continent
Or driving your sister insane (Phineas!)

As you can see
There’s a whole lot of stuff to do
Before school starts this fall (Come on Perry)

So stick with us ’cause Phineas and Ferb
Are gonna do it all
So stick with us ’cause Phineas and Ferb are
Gonna do it all!
(Mom! Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!)

Flash Forward Theme Song

Like I said, there is another show called “Flash Forward.” The difference—the space between “flash” and “forward” and the fact that was a show for kids which aired on the Disney Channel in 1996.

For ABC’s FlashForward (2009), click here.

I do not know much about this show; I only created this entry to avoid confusion with the other FlashForward. All I know so far is that it starred Ben Foster and Jewel Staite. I also know however, that this show had a theme song that is more blog-worthy. I will update this post once I encounter more information.
