Dear Mr Sony (remember me?)

Hi Mr Sony,

Yep, me again. Got an awesome idea for you this time. Kind of a cross between SingStar and Guitar Hero.

TV Theme Sing'n'Play Hero Star.

Like it? I personally think its a little bit genius.

You get to either sing TV themes (if there are words) or play them (if they're instrumental). Or both, in the case of a theme like The Dukes of Hazzard (you could adapt the guitar to be a banjo).

Think of the possibilities. Just THINK!

Here's a few I came up with which I'd like to sing (besides The Dukes of Hazzard):

  • Charles in Charge
  • I'm No Superman (Scrubs)
  • Not The Boss of Me (Malcolm in the Middle)
  • Growing Pains
  • Punky Brewster
  • Family Ties
  • Who's The Boss?
  • Laverne & Shirley
  • Fresh Prince of Bel Air
  • The Facts of Life
  • Diff'rent Strokes
  • Cheers
  • Full House
  • The Brady Bunch
  • Perfect Strangers

Enough? Oh yeah, Eight is Enough. That one too.

And for playing... well there's heaps of them too.

  • MacGyver (imagine the drum content of this one... awesome)
  • Knots Landing
  • Baywatch
  • Grange Hill
  • Head of the Class (if you had a piano component it could get very twiddly which would sort the men from the boys)
  • Mork & Mindy
  • Knight Rider
  • The Professionals
  • The A Team
  • Beverly Hills 90210*
  • Melrose Place**

There's loads. LOADS.

I strongly suggest you bring it up at your next brainstorming session. I reckon it'd be a real winner. I'd buy it.



* Updated to incorporate elaine's brilliant suggestion.
** On the back of elaine's brilliant suggestion, I had to add this one for sheer guitar component potential.

YES! Oh what an amazing guitar component that would be.
