TV Themes, Part Whatever: Themes By W. G. “Snuffy” Walden

In between having to do all the “grownup stuff” (pay taxes) and all my preparations for the A to Z Challenge (he highlight of my blogging year, and hopefully yours, too), I realized that I have a blog entry due today. So, I did what I usually do when that happens: I said “Let’s do TV Themes!”

Several weeks ago, Cheryl Wright, who blogs at Plucking of my Heartstrings, and I were talking about TV themes, and the name William Garrett “Snuffy” Walden came up, who’s written theme songs and incidental music for a number of TV shows and movies. He has been nominated for a number of Emmy awards for his music for TV, including the five themes I’ve chosen for today.

  1. The West Wing: Walden won the Emmy for this song in 2000.
  2. Early Edition: Walden received Emmy nominations for Main Title Theme Music and Music Composition for a Series for this show in 1997.
  3. My So-Called Life: Nominated for Main Title Theme Music in 1995.
  4. Huff: Nominated for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music in 2005.
  5. I’ll Fly Away: A nomination for Main Title Theme Music in 1992.

I just realized that we never watched any of these shows….

Anyway, there’s your Friday Five for March 18, 2015.

    1. That’s a good one. I featured that in an earlier TV theme post. Here’s the playlist of the first five Theme posts; I think it’s somewhere around #30.

      Mike Post wrote that one.


  1. #1, #3 & #5 I’m aware of and watched sometimes, but #2 & #4 I’ve never heard of before. It amazes me, a person who watches very little TV, that this one composer would have written the themes for three shows I actually know of. What that means in the whole scheme of things, I dunno. But there you have it!


    1. “Huff” was a total mystery to me; I think it was on one of the premium cable channels, and we don’t have cable anymore. “Early Edition” had an interesting premise, but I’m pretty sure it was on opposite something we watched instead. That’s the case for almost all these shows. Guess we’re not especially hip and with it…
