Wash Your Hands To The Big Bang Theory Theme Song

While the show ended it’s run this year (and I’m still a bit sad about it!) we do have tons of reruns for this one. 

And there is nothing as iconic as the Big Bang Theory theme song.

Wash your hands for 20-seconds singing along with the Barenaked Ladies. 

Our whole universe was in a hot, dense state
Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started, wait
The earth began to cool, the autotrophs began to drool
Neanderthals developed tools
We built a wall (we built the pyramids)
Math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries
That all started with the big bang! Hey!

Since the dawn of man is really not that long
As every galaxy was formed in less time than it takes to sing this song
A fraction of a second and the elements were made
The bipeds stood up straight, the dinosaurs all met their fate
They tried to leap but they were late
And they all died (they froze their asses off)
The oceans and Pangea, see ya wouldn’t wanna be ya

Set in motion by the same big bang!
It all started with the big bang!
It’s expanding ever outward but one day
It will cause the stars to go the other way
Collapsing ever inward, we won’t be here, it won’t be hurt
Our best and brightest figure that it’ll make an even bigger bang!
Australopithecus would really have been sick of us
Debating how we’re here, they’re catching deer (we’re catching viruses)
Religion or astronomy (Descartes or Deuteronomy)
It all started with the big bang!

Music and mythology, Einstein and astrology
It all started with the big bang!
It all started with the big bang!

I know, I know… going way back here. 

But as a kid, this song was THE BEST. 

And it’s still going to show up on just about every list of the best TV theme songs out there. 

Believe It Or Not- We’re Walking On Air as we wash our hands to this oldie. 

 

Look at what’s happened to me
I can’t believe it myself
Suddenly I’m up on top of the world
It should have been somebody else

Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me

THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO, William Katt, 1981-1983, (c) ABC/courtesy Everett Collection

Just like the light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true
Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me

This is too good to be true
Look at me falling for you
Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me

Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me
Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air

I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin’ away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it’s just me
