Guess the groovy 1970s TV theme song from a single rhyme

Will you "take it" and "break it" — or will this "lot" put you on the "spot"?

 

The Seventies were the greatest years for television theme tunes. Don't believe us? Just look at how many of them were legitimate pop hits!

"Love Is All Around," "Making Our Dreams Come True," "Different Worlds" — these were songs in their own right, with unique titles. Heck, even instrumental themes from S.W.A.T. and The Rockford Files made the Billboard charts.

But lyrics were always part of the appeal, especially those rhymes that stuck in your head. Hopefully. 

See if you can match these unique rhymes to the correct 1970s TV theme!

7/13. I knew I wouldn't get the theme from Welcome Back, Kotter. The song wasn't any good then and it's not any good now.

13/13 I really know my 1970's theme songs.

Most of these were trick questions because the other two choices had completely instrumental theme music.

You got 11 out of 13
You must be great at karaoke night. Well done!

The two that missed I never watched. In fact Soul Train never played in Montreal (I would not have watched it anyway).

I got 2 wrong only because I didn't watch either show, Diff'rent Strokes or Alice.

Number three's answer wasn't even Alice, it was The Jeffersons.
