Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo's "Where Everybody Knows Your Name" is one of the most beloved TV theme songs ever written, a wistful anthem to the way that a neighborhood bar — or a long-running sitcom about one — can be a welcome haven after the frustrations and humiliations of everyday life. The olde timey images of bar workers and patrons throughout the decades are not only marvelously matched to the characters — the loudmouth barfly doesn't look much like Cliff Clavin, but you'd know he was the Cliff of his day even without John Ratzenberger's name to help you out — but convey the long history of this kind of place and the kinds of people who treat the bar as their second home (or, in Norm's case, their first).
