One of many shows that I loved in my youth was The Fall Guy and like many of the shows at the time, that love started with the theme tune. Having Lee Majors sing the ‘Unknown Stuntman’ was a great way to start each episode and the tune has stuck in my head ever since. Today I learned that the song is quite a bit longer than the version heard in the opening credits AND that the song was a hit in Germany for Majors!
Here’s a great little video with some of the history of the song and a lovely performance of the full lyrics from original writer David Somerville with his band The Diamonds:
