      • Continuing the 50 Greatest 80’s TV Theme Songs/Openings! … and here they are, THE TOP TEN! At #2 is … Dynasty

      • Airing on ABC from January 12, 1981 to May 11, 1989 , Dynasty was the quintessential 80’s show, representing the glamor and overkill of the decade like no other. Of course the opening/theme by Bill Conti would end up near the top of this list, and almost was #1, but the only problem was deciding which season to use. I went with Season Four because while it did have Fake Steven, it still had Actual Fallon, as well as Claudia, and one of my favorites, Kirby. Plus it had tennis pro Mark (Krystle’s first husband) and the short-lived Tracy (remember her?) … and Helmut Berger! Aaah, those were the days. TOMORROW – THE GREATEST TV OPENING/THEME OF THE 80’S!

      • As a bonus, here’s the opening for The Colbys, which despite the presence of such faboo personalities as Stephanie Beacham and Tracy Scoggins, could never live up to the mother ship. Oh, and speaking of the mother ship.
