Best Soap Opera Theme


Recommended Posts

but it was damn perfect on AMC! I thought it was genius to have the charaters sighn their names in the photo album especially since each had different handwriting. Seriously the living photo album has got to be the BEST concept for a show opening ever next to B&B's current fashion show opening

It helps that this opening was created specifically with that in mind instead of it being taked onto their existing one like GH and OLTL

Speaking of B&B' this idea was so original and genius. Perfection

ITA! The ONLY thing this was missing imo was a stronger version of the theme. It was a little too Lifetime synth weak for me, and the opening vamp wasn't strong enough. It's also hard to beat floating pictures, but the signatures was such a wonderful touch (and I loved how Erica had two versions of her final shot).

I cant believe OLTL had the nerve to copy the idea

OMG! Hell no! Now that was my favorite theme!!!! I loved this show back in the day. It was my favorite soap at the time and possibly the only one I watched more than AMC, GH or OLTL. Ava was my girl!!! I loved when they went to the Disney MGM Studios back then.

Lord, I can see my mom sitting on the edge of the bed with a Spiegel catalogue and a Twizzler in her mouth singing along with Jeffrey right now! :lol:

What did you think of the 2004 version? I loved the theme and thought it was the only one of the ABC soaps that had a good opening following the new "studio" versions which all 3 had. AMC kept its identity and loved the use of the photos with the character shots being floating photos in the album

I agree that AMC had the best of the ABCD mandated bumper openings. The pics "exploding" in the beginning, the final one floating away... I just love the idea of seeing all of the AMC cast as snapshots or in picture frames so I wished they could have incorporated more of the prior opening (which had too short of a life).

Okay, I just rewatched, and it was actually much better than I even remembered. I think as time progressed, it got choppier and they lost more of those blue sky/pictures in the wind shots. The first 11 seconds, Edmund, Brook, Maria, Livia, mia, Simone, all that is just gorgeous.

I loved the AW 87-96 theme. Yes it was dated and tacky but I think that worked so much more than the generic opening which had annoying as hell scenes like Gary and Josie twirling around and peeking sneaking through corners looking depressed.

I also enjoyed that Loving theme.

I love the 80s GL openings. The last one, which SFK described as fart sounds, has a certain homey buoyancy I end up getting a kick out of. My favorite part of it is the one that ends on Chelsea/Johnny, not because I liked them, but because it's just such a nice way to end a theme. The disco is shameless but still great fun. The middle one is just perfection, especially early on when they still had the different family groups.
