Five Crucial TV Theme Songs Missing From Josh Groban’s Emmy Montage
It was a minor show on the Emmy scale of things, but this song was actually the first one I thought of when I heard Groban would be giving TV themes the medley treatment. Doesn’t your heart just feel warmed by hearing the first note of this song?
4. The Monkees
Sure, I’m biased, but you have to admit that it’s better than the goddamn Friends theme by a long shot.
I guess now that the Chipmunks are into coprophagia, this song was ruled out for not being family-friendly enough. Rock and roll, man. Rock and roll.
Hey, if the producers thought that the Law & Order “chunk-chunk” was an appropriate representation of the theme song (NB: it isn’t, and I’m sure Mike Post would agree), surely they could have had Groban mime a hula shake or two while the band wailed in the background.
At least this sounds like something Groban could sing. I mean, that Les Claypool impersonation should have been a fineable offense!
