Having already conquered the theme songs of Hill Street Blues, Nightcourt, Magnum, P.I., Facts of Life, Gimme A Break and now The Golden Girls, it’s fair to say that Cam’ron still has dozens of 80′s themes that require his unique talents to bring them into the present day. Here are ten contenders:
The perfect basis to make track recalls the glory days of the Diplomats family, plus make a punchline using the name Alex P.Keaton. Also, I still got a lotta luh for Malory.
Al Jarreau goes in on this butter smooth 80′s jawn for Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepard‘s amusing detective farce. The title alone provides ideal wordplay for various late night escapades.
This would clearly require some Chipmunk soul speeding up, but the “Don’t waste another minute on your crying” line would be ideal for a classic Killa diss track.
Greatest American Hero
William Katt‘s opening piano is built for looping.
A second-rate “Hard Knock Life” rip-off perhaps?
That string section is a winner. Not so much the singing part.
Intro for “Hey Ma Part 2″ or nah?
Those shitty drum rolls have got Heatmakerz written all over them.
Who’s The Boss
Surely something could be done with the last five seconds? If nothing else, an excuse to name a rap song “Alyssa Milano”.
“Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do):
Christopher Cross delivered what could only be considered the perfect basis for the next Dipset reunion. If Killa, Jimmy and Juelz can’t recapture that old magic over this joint, all is lost.
