Classic TV Theme Songs Make Me Happy


Not all of them, but those popular during my early childhood bring much nostalgia for me. The Rockford Files, Quincy M.D. and Hawaii Five-0 seem to be the strongest. I know I’m ageing myself but age happens. You can’t stop it so might as well embrace it. When I was a child my bedroom door opened to the living room of our home. My parents would stay up an hour or so after I went to bed. I listened to these theme songs as they played on the TV my parents watched. These songs lulled me to sleep for years. My parents would talk quietly during the commercials. I was safe. It felt good. Even now, all these years later I find I hum these songs to myself sometimes. I’ve tried watching these shows but I’m just not interested in anything but the music. I think this is a body memory. Something I can’t quite put into words but is so strong it stops me in my tracks. I had a safe, loving and maybe a little too sheltered childhood. A stark contrast to my adult life. I enjoy the memory and safe feelings. I long for them.

Abuse is an unfortunate reality in this world and is more than physical assault. The invisible trauma we suffer can result in chronic illness, which is a relentless beast gnawing away at the soundness of mind. Education and support from others are vital in the healing journey.
