Early 1980’s Intro for the Soap Opera “Another World”

Another World or “AW” was soap opera that ran on NBC for 35 years from May 4, 1964 to June 25, 1999. My Mother, sisters and Grandmother were all big watchers of soap operas. Each has their favorites, but for most of the morning and afternoon when we were all at home, a soap was on the TV. I would occasionally watch with them, my favorites were “All My Children” or “General Hospital”.

One rule was very much enforced, no matter which of the shows that was on, once it started, you had to shut up. Even now, when I hear one of the classic intros, I can’t help but clam up.

This very 80’s intro is to “Another World”, which was enjoyed by my younger sister. When I hear that music, I can almost hearing her melodious NJ accented voice shouting at me to shut the heck up.
