For some reason I’ve had the Dawson’s Creek opening theme song from the title sequence in my head the past couple of hours. I know that the song is called “I don’t want to wait” and it’s by Paula Cole but it will always be the Dawson’s Creek theme song. There’s something special about having an opening theme, it’s one of the identifiers of the show. It differentiates the show to the others around it, even if it is one in the long line of teen dramas the opening will make it stand out from the others. When the television is on and then it starts playing you know what show is about to start and it gives me the pre show jitters. It’s not just Dawson’s Creek, it could be Friends, Fringe, Twin Peak and a whole host of other shows and I’d still get those jitters, I know what show is starting and if the music excites me then I know I have to sit down and watch it quietly for the next hour.
