Who’s the Boss? Theme Song

December 21, 2010

1984–1992

Information regarding Who’s the Boss? Theme Song is quite, to say the least, common knowledge, but my aim is to present it to you in a very straightforward and simple manner.

Alright, so let’s start, the title of the theme song is “Brand New Life”. The lyrics were written by Martin Cohan and Blake Hunter. They were also the creators and producers of the show. Music was composed by Larry Carlton and Robert Kraft. Three distinct vocal versions were used throughout the series’ run. These were sung by Larry Weiss (seasons 1 & 2), country music singer Steve Wariner (seasons 3 to 5), and Jonathan Wolff (seasons 6 to 8).

As far as lyrics is concerned, only one change happened: the original opening verse of “There’s more to life than what you’re livin’” was later changed to “There’s a time for love and a time for livin’”. This happened in the third season. Below are the correct lyrics of the song.

Who’s the Boss? theme song lyrics

There’s more to life than what you’re livin’ / There’s a time for love and a time for livin’
You take a chance and face the wind
An open road and a road that’s hidden
A brand new life around the bend

There were times when I lost a dream or two
Found the trail, and at the end was you
There’s a path you take and a path untaken
The choice is up to you my friend

Nights are long but you’re on your way
To a brand new life,
Brand new life,
Brand new life around the bend

 

Widower Anthony Morton “Tony” Micelli is a former Major League Baseball player who was forced to retire due to a shoulder injury. Wanting to move out of Brooklyn to find a better environment for his daughter, Samantha, he ends up taking a job in upscale Fairfield, Connecticut as a live-in housekeeper for divorced advertising executive Angela Bower and her son Jonathan, and he and Samantha move into the Bower household. Appearing frequently is Angela’s feisty, sexually progressive mother Mona Robinson, who dates all kinds of men, from college-age to silver-haired CEOs. This portrayal of a woman in middle age with an active social and sexual life was unusual for television at the time.

Below are some distinct versions and variations of the opening sequence/theme song. See above for reference. As far as changes in the opening video sequence is concerned, maybe there’s another blog for that.
