There are lots of elements that go into creating a television show, but perhaps no factor is as key as a good theme song. But do you honestly pay attention to who performs them?
November 1st, 2018
Read on to find out which famous artists performed theme songs (of TV past and present).
Hilary Duff brought the drama for “Laguna Beach.”
Lauren Conrad, Spencer, and Heidi Pratt, and Brody Jenner all got their start on this so-called reality show, and to amp up the drama, show creators borrowed Hilary Duff’s now-iconic song “Come Clean” to ring in each episode.
Regina Spektor brought her indie-pop twist to “Orange Is The New Black.”
Spektor wrote “You’ve Got Time” specifically for the show, and OITNB creator Jenji Kohan told Entertainment Weekly it was her plan all along: “I listened to Regina’s albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song … I had complete faith in her, and she nailed it.”
Christina Milian made “Kim Possible,” possible.
Joan Jett’s rocker track “Reputation” served as the theme song for the short-lived cult classic “Freaks & Geeks,” which feels like the perfect anthem for a show surrounding the lives of adolescent misfits.
Destiny’s Child left their mark on Disney with “The Proud Family.”
During Destiny’s Child mania in the early 2000s, the iconic girl group sang the über popular theme to Disney’s “The Proud Family” featuring Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, with the group even releasing a behind-the-scenes music video that will hit you in all the nostalgic feelings.
Barenaked Ladies channeled their nerdy side for “Big Bang Theory.”
Barenaked Ladies may have been at their prime during the 90s, but they made a bit of a nerdy return to the spotlight to perform the intricate and fast-paced theme song of the soon-ending sitcom “Big Bang Theory.”
