It takes a true '70s child to know the names of all these TV theme songs

"Welcome Back" to those "Happy Days."

The melodies are permanently stuck in your head. You can probably sing the lyrics. But do you know the actual song titles?

Yes, we're talking about 1970s TV theme songs, the golden era, when ditties like "Happy Days" and "Welcome Back" made the pop charts.

But not every theme song had a title that matched the show's name. In fact, some of them are pretty surprising. See if you can fill in all the blanks!

Missed the Sanford and Son song. One of my favorite shows since I was a kid. Always liked Lamont.

14/14; easy one for me - I grew up watching 70's TV shows.

I would agree but a lot of times you never knew the name of the song.
"59th Street Bridge Song" for example.

14/14. Fun to remember the old theme songs. I remember when they used to put out albums of TV show theme songs. Just fun.

13/14! Sanford And Son was not fair, since its theme is usually untitled! Only Quincy Jones could answer that question!

Missed number 13. Never heard of Sanford and Son's theme having lyrics or a name except Sanford and Son.

I didn't know Sanford and Son's theme had a title either! It was only an instrumental, there were no lyrics.
