Welcome to Musical Monday! Music has been known to affect our emotions. Listening to music can make us happy or sad, relaxed or motivated, put us to sleep or make us want to dance. Music absolutely plucks at our heartstrings bringing to the surface a multitude of emotions.
Someone once described music to me as a time machine. When we listen it often transports us back to a place in time. A certain song can bring back feelings of someone we loved, our wedding day, someone who died, or any of the many important times in our lives.
Music has always been a big part of my life. When I am sad listening to a sad song often allows me to release that sadness. Happy songs tend to take away my sadness. It has helped motivate me to do housework. Yep, just crank up the radio or a music television station and I’m good to go. Warning: Be careful not to turn your music up too loud though. I have actually blown out the speakers in a television once doing this.
I have been known to start singing in a store when a song that I like comes on, I tend to sing along with songs while I am driving, and it isn’t unusual to see me moving to the music in my computer chair as I sit and listen to music.
This week I am posting theme songs from television shows of the 60’s. Please leave your favorite 60’s television show theme song in the comments below. You may see your song posted in upcoming blog posts. Also please take the poll at the end of this post.

Hey hey, we’re The Monkees!
Wow! That is such a great one. I can’t believe I forgot about The Monkees!
My childhood heroes!
Davy Jones was my favorite.
Me too, when I was young. But I grew to appreciate the others more as I (and they) grew older. I saw them in a reunion concert maybe 20 years ago. They still had it!
Lucky you to see them in concert : ) Music has changed so much over the years.
You have some good ones here! I actually like all of these. I post TV themes every once in a while, and I don’t think I’ve done any of these…
Thank you! There were so many great television shows in the 60’s that I had a hard time picking only ten. It was fun listening to the old themes but it made me a bit sad realizing all the years that have gone by.
I’ve got several playlists I’ve built with TV themes here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIDupVNSu1PfoDWIhpMM2MQ/playlists
Also, check the videos of YouTube user RwDt09:
He’s done a fantastic job of finding the openings of TV shows and building videos with them. A lot of his videos will take a year and a night of the week and do a synopsis of the shows that were on that night. I think you’d like it.
Thanks so much for sharing these links with me. I have to tell you that I am obsessed with your One Hit Wonders of the 60’s playlist. I should be out doing errands but have been sitting here listening and singing along to many of the songs. I think you might be a bad influence…lol I will check out the other link later today.
