Friday Fun: Title Match   

Friday Fun!Driving to work this morning, I heard one of my favorite TV Theme Songs on the radio, and was struck by what a bizarre title it had. As a girl who has a serious infatuation with music on TV, this got me to wondering how many of our beloved TV theme songs we would recognize by mere title alone? And thus a Friday Fun game was born!

Your Friday Fun challenge this week is to match the song title (and artist) given below to the title of the TV show that uses it as their theme song. Please post your answers in the comments.

1. How Soon is Now – Love Spit Love

2. California – Phantom Planet

3. We Used to be Friends – The Dandy Warhols

4. Long Skirt, Short Jacket – Cake

5. Closer to Free – the BoDeans

6. I Don’t Want to Wait – Paula Cole

7. The Bomb – Bitter:Sweet

8. Searchin’ My Soul – Vonda Shepard

9. With A Little Help From my Friends – Joe Cocker

10. I’ll Be There For You – The Rembrandts

11. I Don’t Want to Be – Gavin Drew

12. Where Everybody Knows Your Name – Gary Portnoy & Judy Hart Angelo

13. Who Are You – The Who

14. Brand New Life – Steve Wariner

15. Woke Up This Morning – Alabama3

And as a special bonus, see if you can get this ‘trick’ theme song title!

16. Something to Believe In – Aqualung

    15. is “The Sopranos”
