A look at theme songs
Sure, NYPD Blue is a great show, but can you dance to it?
Television theme songs have regularly hit the pop charts since 1959’s ”Peter Gunn,” but there’s no guarantee a top-rated show will produce a top-selling record. Cheers’ ”Where Everybody Knows Your Name” rose only to No. 83 on the Billboard charts, and while Dynasty was also a ratings champ, its fanfarelike theme peaked at a mere No. 52.
