Do you remember flipping on the TV just in time to hear the instrumental theme song to ALF?
Without a doubt one of the most memorable shows of of the 80's, ALF crash lands into the Tanner family for 99 episodes over four seasons and hilarity ensues.
Originally from the planet Melmac, ALF is taken in by Willie and Kate Tanner, along with their children Lynn and Brian and the family cat Lucky.
In tune with the theme song, the composer of this iconic rhythm was none-other, than a man named Alf Clausen.
Clausen had some great work under his belt before moving to this memorable TV show, starting with The Partridge Family. In the 1970s, he worked on variety shows, acting as music director for both Donny & Marie and The Mary Tyler Moore Hour.
After ALF wrapped in 1990, Clausen was out of work for months. Then one day he got a call.
