Game show/Sitcome/Commercial theme music

I believe it was a lottery commercial that used the Price is Right theme music in 3 different genres

Opera, Street Band and Jazz, and it made me appreciate the Price Is Right theme song more.

Here is the original and a 2007 recent version.

I find I really enjoy and respect the ones from the 70s and 80s.
I just passed by ALICE and the song is pretty good.


What are some of your favorites?

Nope, I didn't know she was a singer. I have 4 or 5 different albums of TV themes and some songs are from the singers singles or albums, a few themes are on more than one compilation. I also have a few TV show soundtracks like Beverly Hills 90210. Ja'Net co-wrote Movin On Up, and it's on an album she released. I guess she made a lot of money from Nelly's version (Batter Up) since his debut album sold over 10 million in the US.
