I've missed this POD!

These are great songs and I also like the theme song of Laramie, it was only instrumental. :yes

:thankyou Tracy for posting all the songs!

Whoever sang the opening for Cheyenne sounded a lot like George Alexander (he sang the opening song for the Howard Hawks film "El Dorado".)

I love the theme song from "Zorro"; always have and always will. My parents owned a VHS tape that had about five episodes on it and I would watch it over and over again. I'm kind of surprised that I didn't wear the tape out. :laughing

Have you ever heard the title song of the German "Winnetou" series?

It's an instrumental melody, but very nice!

Here is the link where you can see Pierre Brice as chief Winnetou and also Lex Barker as Old Shatterhand.

I know it wasn't their theme song, but I loved the one Pernell sang when he was on The Virginian.

I liked the one from Maverick, and Rawhide comes in second only to Bonanza.

I also like the music to The Rifle Man. I could go on and on, reminds me of my childhood.

Lawman has a very nice title song, too.

If somebody is interested to listen to some great TV western theme songs from the 1950 and 1960s here is a link:

Thanks, Karol! Just listening to the theme songs brings back a lot of memories. I may not remember the show but the theme songs stay with me. :laughing

Well, I reckon I should add this one, since it's the Western that, around the time I was seven, helped so much with my homesickness for Texas.
