Does NBC's Olympics Theme Music Sound Familiar?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 15th 2010 5:03PM
Sharp-eared TV fans have probably known this for a long time because NBC has been using the music for a while, but 'Lost' producer Carlton Cuse Twittered about it the other day to let everyone else know: a lot of the music that NBC is using on their Olympics coverage is the theme song to another show that Carlton co-created/produced back in the early 90s. Here's the video. God I loved this show.

Somebody really needs to start re-running this show. Encore Westerns maybe?

I spent hours on the internet searching for this theme I heard on the Olympics.

OK, so I'm old (56), but I could swear I recall this theme, with a perky "dah DAH dah, dah DAH dah, dahdahdahdahdahdah DAH dah"...from the 70's.

I love the song. Never knew it was the theme to a old show. Never watched "Briscoe County" but, I love Bruce Campbell. He kicks ass in the "Evil Dead" movies.

I never saw that show. I guess I was just too exhausted from teaching and grading papers LOL! I am retired now, but CSI type shows are my fave. The song is very Olympic sounding and I really like it!

To me that is the Olympics Song... I don't know that show... Maybe I am not that old or a foreigner... That song rocks!!! It is the call that Olympics is on !!!
