All: Best Soap Opera Theme Songs

Recommended Posts

My favorite is Y&R's...that music...whenever I hear it I think of the show: Jill, Kay, Victor, Nikki, Jack, Brad, Ashley etc etc

I really loved B&B's old theme, it was soooo 80s and OTT and just fun. I HATE the revamped version.

I liked AMC's themes in the 80s and 90s.

And of course, I loved AW's openings "You are my way, to another world" and JFP's 1996 revamp. Both were good.

1. Y&R's Nadia's Theme -- especially the versions they used in the 70s and 80s. First, last and always THE most evocative piece of music.

2. Santa Barbara -- opening and closing themes. Gives me goosebumps.

3. GH from the 70s to 1995. Especially the long, closing theme.

4. GH Faces of the Heart.

5. B&B -- the original.

6. AMC -- the original theme before the 90 changeover. Again, so evocative.

7. Sunset Beach -- both versions.

8. Love of Life -- the roses-at-the-window mid-70s opening.

I haven't put the Days theme down on my list (especially the closing theme from the 1980s), but I know that if they ever replaced it, I would miss it terribly.

Nobody mentioned GL's disco theme @ 1980? :lol: I've only ever seen it on YouTube but I loved it.

I love it too! The opening version if great, but the full-length closing version is amazing. They could have released that at the clubs a few years earlier than when GL started using it and that could have been a hit!

My favorite themes of all time...

AMC's early 1990's theme - have the full theme somewhere and happy I do.

GH's 1990's to 2004 theme - my favorite theme of all time.

OLTL's early 1990's theme with the champagne bottle - My 2nd favorite theme of all time.

SuBe 2nd theme - Possibly the best suited theme for any show ever.

Nadia's Theme

As much as I've grown to love this piece, together with all its cinematic strings (particularly lower!), woodwinds, horns and light piano chords, I think it's all wrong for Y&R!

Just my opinion.

I've never seen an episode of "Santa Barbara", but the theme song is great! It's jarring and abrasive and I love it! I even have it on my iPod.

It's so awesome! It reminds me of childhood summers. So hot outside, and soap operas were by their nature slower-paced back then. Then, at 3pm, came that blast of music. Ba da da BAAAAH!

Another favorite of mine is the Another World 1996-1999 Opening, before they cut it down to 5 seconds lol! I'd kill for OLTL opening like this. Can't you just imagine Natalie and Jared walking away, quick flash, and then you see Jess/Tess following them lol?

Even though I wasn't alive for these, I LOVE these GL themes from the 70's.

I hated SB theme music. It sounded so cheap. JMO of course.

I think that was AW best theme music.

I loved the leaves opening. I remember it so well as a kid.
