Cheesy Song of the Day, August 11:’Love Is All Around‘ Joan Jett; Sonny Curtis
I’m not going to go into nostalgia mode about how amazing TV was in the good old days because there was no reality TV fouling up the airwaves. I am going to say that The Mary Tyler Moore Show was fantastic television. It was a Saturday night ritual to hang out with Mary Richards and her workplace family. It wasn’t until I got to college that I realized what a huge cultural shift the show represented: an unmarried working woman, surviving and thriving. The theme song was just the icing on the cake.
