How far can you make it through popular 70’s show lyrics?
This was always one of my most favorite theme songs.
Eduardo Gaskell

“The Love Boat” theme song is one of the catchiest tunes ever to grace television screens but it’s been 30 years give or take.

It’s a really good song but do you remember the lyrics?

The show aired from 1977 to 1987. It was a time without social media.

Getting hooked on a series and waiting for each episode was a very real thing for our parents back then. It was a different time!


It was a lighthearted drama set on luxury passenger cruise ship “MS Pacific Princess”.

Each episode contained romance and comedy, and that opening theme always got viewers in the mood for a fun.

It was going to be a great evening!

It’s been decades so let’s see if you still know the words!

Who wouldn’t want to spend their days on a boat like that?

Jack Jones took care of the song in seasons 1 to 8, then by Dionne Warwick in season 9. Now at one point, you probably knew the words by heart, singing along every time the show aired an episode.


There’s just something about a TV series with a catchy theme song. It just adds to the appeal of the show.

Get your viewers in the mood with a cool theme and they’ll stay for the episode.

It’s no different from the FRIENDS theme for the nineties people out there.


Those were simpler times. Tune in with friends, grab some chips, and start singing along once the show comes on.
