Spoken Word TV Theme Songs


I was not sure I was going to enjoy these, but hearing them out of context adds an interesting twist to these songs I have heard thousands of time. I especially enjoy his reading of “Charles in Charge”. Not sure this will ever become a trend, but I would probably be willing to sit through well known actors doing readings liked.

Can you name all the songs without the music?

  1. This is oddly fascinating. I feel like I’m in a beatnik poetry slam with Scott Baio, Alan Thicke and Ricky Schroeder.

    I love these. Actually, I always thought that the theme song to “Alice” would make a great Spoken Word. LOL!
