TV THEME SONG-ville -- Episode 4

Has there ever been a sweeter, more melodic theme song than the one that welcomed Cheers?

I think not.

Written by Judy Hart Angelo and Gary Portnoy -- and performed by Portnoy -- "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" graced this classic NBC comedy from its September 1982 premiere to its May 1993 finale. The live wrap party, incorporated into Jay Leno's Tonight Show, found most of the cast members rowdy, bawdy and plastered. It also featured a remote greeting from Vancouver, in which Kirstie Alley performed the song "Dick, Dick, Dick, Dick" with mockups of her fellow Cheers co-stars. Rhea Perlman then called her "Krusty."

Enjoy the theme.
