Theme from Greatest American Hero

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

This was a quirky little show that lasted 3 seasons, 1981-83. A Special Ed teacher and an FBI agent have a close encounter with an alien space vessel in the desert. The teacher, Ralph, was given a red suit that gives him super powers - he loses the instruction manual and has to figure out how to use the suit, literally on the fly!

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



Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.



It's like a light of a new day-,
It came 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 walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

    That was med school and residency days (while raising 5 children and married to an alcoholic husband). TV wasn't in my vocabulary!
