First of all I'm filing this post under the "Sadness" label because the TV soap opera has pretty much been laid to rest. I think there are only a handful of daytime soaps on the air and primetime soaps died a brutal death a long time ago.
Here are some of my personal favorite TV soap opera openings. Now I am fully aware that many of these openings have changed based on the year of its release. These specific openings are just my personal favs and may not necessarily be the original theme song.
*Nerdy Fact* -- I once kept a VHS recording of all of these TV openings because I loved them so much. Thankfully YouTube never lets me down.
DAYTIME Guiding Light Opening circa 1991
All My Children circa 1980s (short and succinct)
One Life To Live circa 1988 Peabo Bryson style
Young & The Restless relatively the same theme since its inception
What are your favorite Primetime soap opera openings?
