TOPIC Is the Kid Rock-Sheryl Crow hit, ''Picture,'' the same tune as the Golden Girls theme song?

Andrew Gold, writer of ''Thank You for Being a Friend,'' a.k.a. ''The Golden Girls Theme'' ''I'll check with my lawyers. All I noticed about the Kid Rock-Sheryl Crow song is that I was deeply disappointed. I usually love Sheryl Crow and I thought this song was really, really like bad country music.... I don't particularly like my own song, but it's my accountant's favorite, let's put it that way.''

Spokesperson for Crow's label, A&M Records ''What? That's hilarious!'' -- Kimberly Reyes
