DEF: Cynthia Fee “Thank You For Being A Friend”
In 1978, California-born musician Andrew Gold hit the Top 40 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart for the second time in his career when his song “Thank You For Being A Friend” peaked at number 25. Seven years later, a version of the song performed by Cynthia Fee was used as the theme song for the new NBC sitcom The Golden Girls, which would run for seven seasons and go on to develop a considerable fan following that has kept the show going in syndication on multiple television networks.
Exactly 30 years ago today, The Golden Girls premiered on television. In honor of that anniversary, the theme song — “Thank You For Being A Friend” — is today’s Daily Eighties Flashback.
