Theme Tune Week - Day Five

Back to the land of TV now with some classic tunes which all came from the mind of one man. Hard to believe, really. Would today's mystery guest please sign in?

Mike Post

He's been working on themes since the seventies and there are plenty of his I could chose from but, unfortunately, I'm a little bit scuppered in my plans by the fact a lot of the original themes have been removed from YouTube by petty lawyers frightened that this minor sharing of music may signal the end of civilisation as we know it. Or something. So, instead of The Rockford Files which would have been the first choice, first up we have:-

And, to finish off let's go with this little beauty:-

He also wrote the theme for Hill Street Blues but good luck trying to find the original of that on the YouTubes, too.

Two days left. Two more composers to go....

Quantum leap ? Never heard of it.
A Team ? Never watched it.
Hill Street Blues ? I was in love with all of them, specially Taurean Blacque and Bruce Weitz and even, in a strange way, Veronica Hamel. The music is so evocative.
Try (I somehow didn't remember it as being so slow but memory plays funny tricks)

Never heard of Quantum Leap? Oh boy...

To be honest, I never watched the A Team much cause it often clashed with Doctor Who and, well, I think we all know where my loyalties lie... (it's still a great theme tune, though)
