Ghostwriter Theme Song


This is not for the Ewan McGregor film. This is for the way-cooler 1990s kids television series. Although, where are they all now?

With that out of the way, the theme from Ghostwriter, although barely a song (just simple background music), was still quite catchy and memorable—especially for that timely “Ghostwriter!” line after each character’s opening monologue.

Since the song does not really have lyrics (except maybe for “Ghostwriter!” and “word”), I’ll take this chance to post the complete opening narrative where the characters are describing the nature and whereabouts of Ghostwriter. So, here you go.

We don’t know where he came from.
He just showed up one night.
(What is that thing?)
He’s not an alien.
(What is he?)
We think he might be a ghost.
(Be serious.)
He wants to be friends with us.
He can’t hear, and he can’t talk.
He can read anything.
He takes letters, and he writes with them.
We’re the only ones who can see him.
That means he wants you on the team.
You have to promise never to tell anybody about Ghostwriter.
(Hey, cool.)
We’re the Ghostwriter Team.
We check out clues and solve mysteries.
He’s a ghost, and he writes to us.
(Ghostwriter, what a trip.)

As for the song, I do not know for sure, although IMDb lists Gail King and Peter Wetzler for original music.

So, without further ado, the Ghostwriter opening sequence and theme song.

Sesame Street Theme Song


Jesus, 40 years of Big Bird, Bert & Ernie, etc.

I have seen the theme from Sesame Street credited three ways: “Sesame Street Theme,” “Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street,” and “Can You Tell Me How to Get to….”

The song was written by Joe Raposo, the show’s first music director. The lyrics of the song is credited to Jon Stone, one of the show’s original producers, and Bruce Hart, an American songwriter.

The song has gone through a number of changes and recording over its 40-year run, but the lyrics and basic melody stay the same.

Sesame Street theme song lyrics

Sunny Day
Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play
Everything’s A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That’s where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to Sesame Street
