Every time I see this photo, I’m reminded of the TV show Mister Ed. It had a catchy little theme song that started off:
A horse is a horse, of course, of course
And no one can talk to a horse of course
That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.
My point is that I think great TV theme songs are sort of a thing of the past. Well, good TV programs are too for that matter. But think back to some of the television shows you might have watched when you were growing up. Most if not all had memorable theme songs that went hand-n-hand with what the show was all about. In other words, “you can’t have one without the other”! ;) Shows like:
• Hawaii Five-o
• The Love Boat
• HardCastle and McCormick
• Magnum P.I.
• The Fall Guy
• The Dukes of Hazzard
• Sanford & Son
• The Beverly Hillbillies
This isn’t an exhaustive list by no means, and I could list many more. But how about you? What was your favorite TV show and/or theme song that you remember? Leave me a comment below.
The Story Behind the Photo
I was out driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway one day a few years ago, and saw these horses grazing next to the fence. So I hopped out to get a quick shot, and this one let out a huge “whinny” just as I was making the shot. Talk about timing! He was quite the talker that day, or shall we say a little “long in the tooth”! :) Talk to you later! ~MB
