It’s pretty sad when the only thing I like about a soap is the opening theme song.
I loved hearing the OLTL opening theme song – sung with the words – for those three days of the musical.
Each day the song was performed by different singers – one day it was sung by Kassie DePaiva (Blair) who has a beautiful voice.
And – I think Tuesday – the opening theme was from the late 1980’s sung by Peabo Bryson.
[NOTE: I later found out that it was Mark Lawson (Brody) who sang Tuesday’s theme song – and HUGE KUDOS to him….To me, he sounded just like Peabo Bryson!]
They didn’t use the 80’s photos, of course.
Does anyone know the reason why they would use that theme song for three days and then revert back?
I don’t know why…But I will say that it was comforting….comforting because it made me think of the good old days of OLTL.
Ah yes….The 80’s…when the storylines and writing were still good.
Sad it’s come to this…..
I’ve already blogged about the hot mess of the three-day musical fiasco.
Lots of fast forwarding for me on those days.
As far as I’m concerned, the only good things to come out of that musical are seeing Brody (Mark Lawson) in his dress whites
And having Markko (Jason Tam) FINALLY discover the awful truth about Langston cheating on him with that low-life Ford.
THAT is another one of those storylines – like GH’s Liz cheating on Lucky with Nikolas – that went on way too long!
Oh, yeah….I loved when Markko slugged Ford. Now THAT was good!
And, judging by the previews, OLTL isn’t getting better any time soon…..
Natalie and Brody getting drunk and sleeping together?????
It looks like that will happen today.
Of course, Jessica will regain her memory and John will tell Natalie he wants her back…AND Nat and Brody will have THIS big secret…
Not good, since I like both couples and, of course, they’re being ruined.
Why is it that everyone on OLTL jumps into bed with the first available body when they get upset?
Everyone wants good drama.
But gratuitous sex is insulting to the fans and ruins the crediblity of good characters.
