The Joker's Wild - Theme

Theme

The theme used from 1968–1969 and 1971–1974 was "The Savers", a 1967 track by electronic music artists Perrey and Kingsley. During the third and fourth weeks of the CBS run, because Barry had failed to secure clearance rights to "The Savers", a sound-alike theme was used while the clearance issues were resolved. "The Savers" was also used as the main theme of the first syndicated season.

A new theme composed by Alan Thicke entitled "Joker's Jive" was introduced in 1974, and was used for the 1974–1975 season and for the closing of the first syndicated season. In 1978, the show introduced a new theme (retaining some thematic elements of "The Savers") composed by Hal Hidey, which remained until the end of the run in 1986. For the 1980 Million Dollar Tournament, the theme from B&E's earlier game show, Break the Bank was used.

Joe Manolakakis, for Hancock & Joe Productions, composed a new theme and music package for the 1990–1991 version.

Famous quotes containing the word theme:

    Only the most acute and active animals are capable of boredom.—A theme for a great poet would be God’s boredom on the seventh day of creation.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    This is certainly not the place for a discourse about what festivals are for. Discussions on this theme were plentiful during that phase of preparation and on the whole were fruitless. My experience is that discussion is fruitless. What sets forth and demonstrates is the sight of events in action, is living through these events and understanding them.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    ... passion for survival is the great theme of women’s poetry.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
