Family Ties Opening and Closing Theme 1982 - 1989

Family Ties is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 22, 1982 until May 14, 1989. The series, from creator Gary David Goldberg, reflected the move in the United States from the cultural liberalism of the 1960s and 1970s to the conservatism of the 1980s.This was particularly expressed through the relationship between young Republican Alex P. Keaton (Michael J. Fox) and his ex-hippie parents, Elyse and Steven Keaton (Meredith Baxter-Birney and Michael Gross). The show won multiple awards, including three consecutive Emmy Awards for Michael J. Fox as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. Set during the early years of the Reagan administration, Elyse and Steven Keaton (Meredith Baxter-Birney and Michael Gross) are baby boomers, liberals and former Hippies,raising their three children: Alex (Michael J. Fox), Mallory (Justine Bateman) and Jennifer (Tina Yothers) in suburban Columbus, Ohio. Married in 1964, Elyse is an independent architect, and Steven is the station manager of WKS, a local public television station. The couple later has a fourth child, Andrew (Brian Bonsall). The Theme Song, "Without Us," was composed by Jeff Barry and Tom Scott in 1982. It was performed by Deniece Williams and Johnny Mathis, except for the first ten episodes, where it was performed by Dennis Tufano and Mindy Sterling.
