Bruce Springsteen
The writers of this blog are not music critics, and they don't consider a second (or third, fourth or fifth) mortgage to be a perfectly reasonable course of action to pay for front-row tickets, but despite being a whole lot more middle aged than they were when they first put \x34Born in the U.S.A.\x34 or \x34The River\x34 down on the turntable, still feels like Bruce has something -- OK, a lot of things -- to say about our country and the way we live our lives, things that not a lot of other artists are saying. And whether he's talking about the knife that can cut this pain from your heart, the house that's waiting for you to walk in or what that flag flying over the courthouse means, he's nailing down feelings that are so universal that they can raise your spirits and break your heart at the same time. Plus, let¹s face it, the man rocks.

Music is just about everywhere on TV these days - except in most shows' opening credits. The glory days of the TV title song may be long gone, but a few new series are keeping the theme alive.



Most notably, ABC's comedy Malibu Country boasts a traditional opening tune. When it came time to put the show's title credits together, it made perfect sense to ask star Reba McEntire to choose the song. McEntire - who also performed the opening theme to her last sitcom, Reba ("I'm a Survivor") - came back with "Goodbye Looks Good on Me," written by Kellys Collins, Juliana Cole and Jeff Smith.



Here are the titles and talent behind some of this fall's new TV opening themes.



Ben and Kate (Fox)



The Song: "Get Up Again"



The Artist: Michael Andrews, whose credits include the music for Donnie Darko, Freaks and Geeks and Bridesmaids. He also composed the main title to Fox's New Girl with star Zooey Deschanel.



The Mindy Project (Fox)



The Song: "Mindy"



The Artist: Jesse Novak, a composer whose brother is B.J. Novak, the former star and executive producer of The Office.



Guys With Kids (NBC)



The Song: "Walk When You Can Run"



The Artist: Jimmy Fallon, the comedy's executive producer, performs the song, which was written by Amy Miles and Michael Robertson.



Nashville (ABC)



The Song: Nashville theme



The Artist: T Bone Burnett and Keefus Green. Burnett, who's married to Nashville creator Callie Khouri, is an Oscar-winning musician (Crazy Heart); he and Green have collaborated on several projects. Green earned an Emmy nomination for composing Saving Grace.



Partners (CBS; now canceled)



The Song: "Top of the World"



The Artist: Imagine Dragons, a Las Vegas-based alternative rock group.



Inbetweeners (MTV; now canceled)



The Song: "This Too Shall Pass"
