Cool Best 80s Primetime Soap Intro?

Dynasty


Dallas


Knots Landing


The Colbys


Falcon Crest


I realise some intros were tweaked over the years but in the most part which was the best.

I must admit despite only being in my 20s I occasionally watch re-runs of these if they're on The camp drama is just too good.

I guess it was a spin-off so they only changed the theme slightly Yeah Knots Landing is my personal fave, the most catchy in my opinion.

Dynasty.

Those haven't aged well at all. I re-watched the first two seasons last year. When Linda Evans is the best actress of the bunch, including all the guys, it's bad.

Re: Best 80s Primetime Soap Intro?

I love all but Dynasty was my all time fav I loved Falcon Crest too .. I have all of these and lots of other 80's themes as a playlist on my zune

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

Re: Best 80s Primetime Soap Intro?

I just got done listening to them all and damn that bring back memories. I watched every show back when they originally aired except for Dallas. I hadn't realized until just now how alike they all sound...lol

My personal favorite theme song would probably have been from Knots, but the most iconic by far would be Dynasty w.Dallas a close second.

Heres how I'd personally rank the themes:
Knots
Dynasty
The Colby's
Falcon Crest
Dallas

....seeing the openings makes miss this over-the-top 80s shows! DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA!!
