  • Continuing the 50 Greatest 80′s TV Theme Songs/Openings!, Here’s #37, Love, Sidney
  • Airing on NBC from October 28, 1981 until June 6, 1983, Love, Sidney started out as TV movie about a gay man and his relationship with a single mother and her five year-old daughter. When it became a series, Sidney became a “confirmed bachelor” (although there were hints through the series about Sidney’s sexuality, especially toward the end). The theme song “Friends Forever” was performed by series stars Tony Randall, Swoosie Kurtz and Kaleena Kiff.
