Tune In! 10 Classic TV Theme Songs Where Guitar Is the Star
Sometimes the best part of an old TV show is the music running over the opening credits.
07. "Three’s Company"
One thing’s for certain: some dude was totally trippin’ when he cut this nasty wah wah freakout.
Then again, the show is essentially about one man, Jack Tripper and his masturbatory, ménage-a-trois fantasies. Even so, we’re not sure how this insane guitar part slipped by the show’s producer.
Unless, of course, it was recorded by his son, and he had no choice.
06. "The Munsters"
While a million surf and instro bands have taken this ol' tune to new heights (including our buddies, Los Straitjackets), we'll always reserve a place in our hearts for the original (well, Season 2) version. And who can pass up a chance to look at Pat Priest, who played "plain" Marilyn Munster?
05. "Chico and the Man"
Prior to offing himself at age 22, Freddie Prinze was, by all counts, “loooking goood!” And Jose Feliciano’s brisk Latin theme song, played on acoustic, was sounding good. Too bad the pairing only lasted three seasons. Now all we’ve got is Freddie Prinze Jr.
