Rae of Light

Robin Thicke’s parents are Alan Thicke and Gloria Loring, and they (with Al Burton) wrote and sang the theme songs to ‘Facts of Life‘ and ‘Diff’rent Strokes‘!!!!!!

Alan composed other themes – like one for ‘Wheel of Fortune‘, ‘Joker’s Wild‘, ‘Celebrity Sweepstakes‘ and for something called ‘The Wizard Of Odds‘.  dude is a wizard 4 sho

    Diff'rent Strokes theme song is still the greatest of all time!

  3. That Diff'rent Strokes song remind me of the good old days, when they actually made music.

  4. And that is the one happy family. Its always good to see such families in today's world where everyone is busy in his own.
