Flashback Friday and Music: Iconic TV Show Songs

Happy Friday!!!

I was on Pandora the other day, and I Don't Want To Wait (as in Dawson's Creek!) came on -- I suddenly missed the old TV shows I used to watch with my sister!

One thing I noticed about TV shows of the late 90s/ early 2000s?
They each had really, really good theme songs. I think it's safe to say that these songs are pretty much iconic by now and associated with each respective TV show.

Let's reminisce, shall we?

Dawson's Creek -



I think it's great that they are all still around today -- Katie Holmes is, of course, most well-known as Mrs. Tom Cruise, the ever-so-amazing Michelle Williams is an Academy Award-nominated actress, Joshua Jackson has a successful show in Fringe, and James Van Der Beek is even more handsome today -- have you guys seen the pilot episode of Don't Trust The B---- in Apt. 23? It is hilarious!

Gilmore Girls -



Who didn't want a cool Mom like Lorelai?!
And hello, Melissa McCarthy!!! ;)

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. -



One word: Classic!

The O.C. -



Rachel Bilson still looks the same today -- just with better clothes! ;)
And Adam Brody = the quintessential boy-next-door!

Joan of Arcadia -



This makes me miss high school!
We used to watch Joan of Arcadia episodes for our Religion class.

7th Heaven -



Almost everyone I know had a crush on either Matt or Simon. ;)

When we were kids, my siblings and I used to watch 7th Heaven episodes nonstop during the summer.
*Sigh* I miss those days!

One Tree Hill



I used to watch One Tree Hill, but as school got so busy, I stopped.
And it's just not the same without Chad Michael Murray. :/
But, did you guys watch the series finale?

I had so much fun going through all these TV show songs, and I hope you guys had fun too!

I'm sure there are more songs we can add to this list...
Any other iconic TV show songs you can think of?
Which of these seven songs is now stuck in your head? ;)

Have a happy Easter weekend!!!

  1. Oh my goodness, thank you so much for such a great flashback! Especially, "Dawson's Creek," all those clips remind me of my time filming that show, and that song always brings me back to my college days when the show premiered...yes, I'm that old...hehe...and such great times at the start of my career! Hope you have a Happy Easter, Mimi!!! :)

  2. Liesl, you filmed Dawson's Creek???!!! So cool.

    Mimi thanks for those flashbacks - I LOVE the Dawson's Creek song, it is haunting. I've never watched One Tree Hill, but I've always loved that song. It's really sexy, or maybe that's just the guy who sings it. Lol! xx

  8. Happy Easter weekend to you Mimi!! :D I LOVE gilmore girls and FRIENDS~! I still watch Friends now with my bf :P I use to think I wish I had a mom like Lorelai!! :D I never really watched Dawson's Creek cause I never liked James van der beek :P I don't know why. I thought the O.C was kinda similar with One tree hill, and I prefer One tree hill, but of course Chad Michael Murray!! I stopped half way and I did not watch the finale! I also remember Chad from Gilmore Girls!! Now I'm curios about One tree hill and what happened to that show ...lol. All the other shows I don't remember probably cause I never watched them religiously but one show I loved was Charmed. I wanted to be one of the Charmed sisters ;)

  11. Aww this brings back so many memories! I used to love so many of these series too. Friends was hands down, my favorite though. I think the tv shows from the 90s were the best - a lot of the stuff on tv nowadays can't even compare.

  21. OMG, what a fun post! The Dawson's Creek song has been stuck in my head for days now haha. Gilmore Girls was so fun to watch, F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is definitely classic, I have a huge crush on Adam Brody, Joan of Arcadia had such an interesting storyline, I was Team Simon for 7th Heaven, and I LOVE One Tree Hill! I can't believe it's over. :/

    Lots of love, B
