Can you match these singers to their beloved TV theme songs?

You might know these pop acts — but do you know their TV tunes?

They don't make TV themes like they used to. Back in the day, they were legitimate pop songs. In some cases, they were even recorded by legitimate pop stars! 

We gathered some notable musical acts who cut classic TV themes. Try to match their names and faces to the correct shows!

  1. Pratt & McClain's letterman jackets were a nice touch — and a hint.
  2. He also sang the 'Cop Rock' theme but we're going to overlook that one.
  3. The Man in Black sang the theme for which Western?
  4. Bill Joel could be heard on this '80s sitcom.
  5. He was appropriately setting sail on this cover.
  6. The Queen of Soul was quite a get.
  7. They might be — well, they definitely are — the singers behind this theme.

  8. As if you couldn't tell, this was in the '90s.
  9. This Lovin' Spoonful frontman scored a bit hit with his tune.
  10. She was more of a one-hit wonder.
  11. This soul icon cut a classic sitcom theme.
  12. Can you stay in the right Laine?
  13. The Peppermint Trolley Company was the first act to record this famous theme.

Can you match these singers to their beloved TV theme songs?

#9 is currently being used in an Applebee's commercial, I think they goofed I love the song but I don't know if THE SAME OL PLACE THAT YOU LAUGHED ABOUT will draw people back to Applebee's! They basically admitted Applebee's is a joke!

*Bill* Joel? Really? I mean, in his song “Piano Man” it does say “Bill, I believe this is killing me”, but I’m pretty sure METV just said ‘Bill’ because they don’t proofread. 😆

Puke. 5 out of 13.
I didn't really expect to do that well on this one, but that was horrible.
The first one I definitely thought I had but I went into it by not REALLY reading the whole question, with the hint. Because from the graphics, it really looked like Saved By The Bell. Nice trick, MeTV staff! You got me.
