Song of the Day #2050

Song of the Day: I Dream of Jeannie (“Main Theme”) [YouTube link], composed by Hugo Montenegro, opened this TV comedy, which ran from 1965 to 1970. The series was the brainchild of Sidney Sheldon, who was also the creator of “Hart to Hart” and co-creator of “The Patty Duke Show“. Sheldon won an Oscar for his screenplay to the 1947 comedy, “The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer” and authored 18 best-selling novels. This show starred Barbara Eden as Jeannie (the genie) and Larry Hagman (long before he was J.R. Ewing on “Dallas“). Check out a rare vocal rendition and a mix of both the original theme by Richard Wess and the famous Montenegro version [YouTube links].
