Much like The Archies or The Monkees before them, fake TV band The Heights had a huge #1 hit in 1992 with the theme song of the short-lived TV show of the same name produced by Aaron Spelling between Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place.
Formed in 1989, The Rembrandts exploded into pop culture history when they performed the theme song for Friends, “I’ll Be There For You”, which became a massive hit as a single in 1997.
Perfectly fitting into the campy and weird vibe of the movie, California punk rock icons The Dickies provided Killer Klowns from Outer Space with it’s circus flavored theme song of the same name.
The theme song for 1993’s Free Willy, Will You Be There was also the eighth single off the Dangerous album and the longest song (at least the album version) in Michael’s discography.
Put up against Johnny Carson before he hit the big time on Growing Pains, Alan Thicke performed his own theme song for Thicke of the Night, also called Thicke of the Night.
