Cape Town – What makes a TV show legendary? An epic theme song of course!

There are theme songs  that resonate with us long after a TV show has ended and they become cult phenomenas.

We just have to type these words: "In West Philedelphia born and raised..." and you’re probably singing the rest of it now.

We were feeling a bit nostalgic and went in search of some of the most memorable theme songs of TV shows in the 80s and 90s.

Here’s our top 5 theme songs from SA TV shows we will never forget.
