Theme from Cagney and Lacey

Today’s tune is the theme tune from the 80s TV show Cagney and Lacey. Admittedly the first 2 and a half minutes are quite different from anything that was ever heard on the show, but again it just goes to show how a good tune works in different styles! Well, hopefully it works… The theme was written by Bill Conti and replaced an earlier opening sequence in the first season of the show which featured the Michael Stull song Ain’t That The Way sung by Marie Cain.
