The Fishin' Hole (theme to The Andy Griffith Show) by Andy Griffith
Album: American OriginalsReleased: 1960
This is possibly the most recognized TV theme song known to mankind. It's almost impossible not to whistle along to this (if you can whistle at all). It has become a cultural icon associated with the image of Andy Griffith and Ron Howard (now an award winning director) as Andy and Opie Taylor walking on the dirt road with their cane poles on their way to the "fishin' hole." This reminds us all of a simpler time, a simpler place in American history.
The music was written by Earle Hagen and Herbert Spencer, the lyrics by Everett Sloane. (thanks, Mike - Mountlake Terrace, Washington, for above 2)
