Say, remember the TV series Jesse? It was an NBC sitcom starring Christina Applegate as a single mother living in Buffalo, and one of many failed attempts to fill the timeslot after Friends. It was pretty bad, and it was canceled after two seasons. But there was one good thing about it: the theme song, "Time For You" by the Tories.

The Tories - Time For You (MP3, 2.5 Mb)

In a just universe, "Time For You" would have been as big a hit for the Tories as "I'll Be There For You" was for the Rembrandts, but it was not to be. By the time "Time For You" was released on an album and as a single, Jesse had been canceled and no one wanted to be reminded of it. Too bad, because in my opinion it's not just a great television theme song, but a power pop masterpiece in its own right.
