TV’s Greatest Theme Songs

Family Ties Autographed PictureOver the past 250 years, there have been some great TV theme songs. Songs that sweep you up, and bring you back to the days of yester yore. Some of Frankie and my favorites are Growing Pains, MacGuyver, Dukes of Hazard, Gimme a Break and Family Ties. With Family Ties being king of the crop.

If you are a Family Ties fan like we are, you can get your fill at Family Ties Online. I’ve also posted the lyrics to the theme song below. So what about you? What are your favorite TV theme songs?

Without Us
Sung by: Johnny Mathis and Deniece Williams
Music by: Tom Scott
Lyrics by: Jeff Barry

I bet we’ve been together for a million years
And I’ll bet we’ll be together for a million more
Oh, it’s like I started breathing on the night we kissed
And I can’t remember what I ever did before

What would we do, baby, without us?
What would we do, baby, without us?
And there ain’t no nothing we can’t love each other through
What would we do, baby, without us?
Sha-la-la-la

10 Secrets to a Happy Marriage

Love. Two simple words that make the world go ’round. Love. No matter what language you say it in, it’s pronounced differently. Love. The fuel that can keep your marriage tank full.

Now, I don’t mean to boast, but I’ve learned a few things along that way. A few things that can help you keep your marriage as strong ours is. So below are some thoughts, gleanings and other tidbits that might have your spouse saying “Hello Nurse!”.

1. Take time everyday to brush your spouse’s hair. It’s really quite lovely.

2. Go to the grocery store together and buy a delicious peach. Then give that peach to the homeless man sitting on the corner.

3. Ignore the previous point. It apparently isn’t very effective.

4. Cook your Love a special meal once a month. Remember to prepare a meal your mate will enjoy, even if it’s disgusting.

5. Pretend to be interested in your spouse’s hobbies by asking them detailed questions that will get them ‘jazzed up’.

6. Music is the language of the soul. Try slipping the soundtrack to “The English Patient” into your lover’s portable CD player before their next jog.

7. Once a week your spouse should get the night off when it comes to meal preparations. Take him/her to the food court of your local mall. Tell them it’s your “second honeymoon”.

8. Get your back waxed. Seriously, that’s just gross.

9. Surprise them with a pregnancy by sabotaging their birth control. Bet they didn’t see that one coming!

10. Come and see “Hot Beans in Love” each Wednesday in April. We guarantee we’ll put the fire back in your loins!

Bustin’ Makes Me Feel Good!

GhostbustersThe year is 1984. What type of event, movement or cause could possibly bring together the likes of Chevy Chase, John Candy, Dana Plato, Jeffrey Tambor, George Wendt, Al Fraken, Danny DeVito, Carly Simon and Peter Falk? Could it be AIDS? Homelessness? Drought in Africa?

No my friends. It was the amazing Ghostbusters movie. (A movie unscrupulously overlooked by the Academy) That’s right, Ghostbusters was so big, that all those stars joined in on the making of this legendary video. And they were right to do so.

Oh, how I long for the days of Reagan, stonewashed jeans, Mary Lou Retton, New Coke and a simpler, purer time in the world. Enjoy the video.

Hot Beans in Love, the blog

Benjamin NelsonHello, Chicago! Benji Nelson here. Yep, that’s me off to the right looking pretty snazzy. There’s nothing like tight fittin’ jeans, white tennies and a snappy shirt over a turtle-neck.

Anywho, welcome to Hot Beans in Love, the blog! This is my first time bloggering, so hang in there as I’m still getting used to the Interweb. Frankie, my lovely wife, and I will try and post here a couple of times a week. We’ve got oh so much to say!

Of course the reason you are here is to learn all about our new show “Hot Beans in Love”! If you happen to use the MySpaces, then you can check us out there as well. This show is going to be a saucy mix of song, story telling, audience banter and more. Not much more, but a little bit more.

We love to chat with the “everyday people”, so leave a comment or a thought, and we’ll be sure to try and figure out how to reply.

Well, that’ll do it for now. I’m off to buy a sweater-vest.
