NEVER liked it, NEVER thought it fit the show. It made it look like a damned cheap stereotype of soap opera when the show was otherwise at its best.

Ha.  Yes, that opening is embarrassing.

OLTL never had decent openings, IMO.  Even that '80s one - which everyone seems to rave about - is super cheesy (even for the '80s).

It's not possible for me to love you more than I do in this moment wub.png

My mom adored that ATWT opening. It was always her favorite.

 

That OLTL opening is basically soft core porn. And, it looks like Jessica Tuck's in there.

 

I've always thought it looked like her too.

Felt like I was out in the farm somewhere waiting for Hee Haw to come on.


The thing about that opening for me is that most of the cast just looks cold and unhappy, like they'd rather be anywhere else. I like the music, though.

Gotta throw in OLTL's 30 second porn/arsecrack opening. I can't hate on it too much, though. The snark value is too great.

ETA: beebs beat me to it! wink.png

I digress I loved the 80s OLTL opening.

 

What do you do when you don't find the rainbow's end....Eat some Skittles, bitches!

 

That was not aimed at anyone. It was a sarcastic joke.

I've always thought it looked like Karen Witter.

I also agree on that ATWT opening. It's honestly one of my very favorites, if only due to the music.

LMAO.

 

Taste the rain BO. Ewww.

Agreed. I love that one. Especially the beginning of it where the people are walking and the newspapers like The Banner and The Sun are shown.

Here's what you do
When you don't find the rainbow's end
This time.

Here's where you go
When it looks like the rain won't end
Don't cry

There's always tommorrow
Where you can have a second chance
And after tommorrow
All that you have to remember.

Here's what you do
When you think nobody cares
For you.

Look in my eyes
And see there's an answer there
It's true

We'll find tommorrow
A place for us
I know because

Time only knows
How long forever's gonna last
<Unkown line>

Let's live today
And find someone to share it with
Cause we only have one life to live

(intrumental)

Don't cry
I'll give you tommorrow
Let me the be to share it with

And each day that follows
Cause you only have one life to live!

I thought it was ok but not one of my favorites.

I recorded myself singing it once. Ha. I couldn't help it.

I remember SPW commenting on that one: "We wanted to say something about GL's new opening...but we blinked and missed it."

 

Pretty much said everything.

This show was slutty enough without the ready-for-Showtime opening:

AW 'You Take Me Away'opening dated very quickly and hearing that song day after day after day became incredibly annoying.Also the crappy graphics looked amateurish.

Actually,the previous opening with the silhouette couple was pretty bad also.

The interlocking rings motif should have been retained.

Most of the GL openings that I've seen I hate TBH. Least liked openings for a show in general for me.

 

That OLTL porn opening is atrocious. Lord have mercy on those were subjected to it in real time.

EUGH. YES. I had tried to block that tripe from my memory but you've gone and ruined my blissful ignorance!

I'm told the motif is contained within the "You Take Me Away" opening, too, but damn if I can find it.

If I was old enough and watched back then. And, they took away the rainbow's end opening and I was watching...I would have been like "How the hell did I turn my TV to SPICE network"
