Wunderbare-Jahre.com - German Fansite about The Wonder Years

Musik aus Wunderbare Jahre

What would „The Wonder Years“ be without the great music of the 60s and 70s? Here is a list with every song that appeared in the series:

theme song:

"Joe Cocker - With A Little Help From My Friends"

"With a Little Help from My Friends" originally titled "A Little Help from My Friends" is a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, released on The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in 1967. Joe Cocker's version was a radical re-arrangement of the original, in a slower, 6/8 meter, using different chords in the middle eight, and a lengthy instrumental introduction. It was used as the opening theme song of the American television series The Wonder Years and is one of Cocker's most famous songs.
Joe Cocker

What would you do if I sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key.

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends (...)
