Whatever Became of Me


TV Theme Song of the Week:

Okay, we need a better title but thought it’d be fun to highlight a catchy TV theme song each week round here.

Lil’ help with a title?

Ah! Sense memory overload!

I'm garbage with titles, so I don't think I'll even try. Thanks for the song though.

"Songs from the Idiot Box of Life"

Dude. Bailey. She's all I can think about.

Bailey was the hotness.

How about "Those Were the Days"

I always think of old TV themes songs, Archie and Edith come first and foremost. That being said, did it get any better than the Barney Miller theme? Nope.

Beat of Yesterday?

As to Bailey: Standout. But she quit acting, married Brolin, and then there was this story:

Bailey was the hotness.

No kidding. The Loni Anderson character was supposed to be the "babe" but Bailey was the one that grabbed me.

Yet another example of Hollywood/TV casting in which a woman with glasses is the "plain" one. Then when she finally removes the glasses it's "why Miss Haversham.... you're beautiful!"

[5] Bailey Quarters forever!

11 RIYank   ~  Nov 22, 2013 12:53 pm

Jan Smithers came to fame as a random teenager shown on the cover of Newsweek in a story about youth in 1966. http://goo.gl/VfRNPV
