“Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” was a mid-80’s celebrity & wealth-worship series produced and narrated by Australian host Robin Leach. The show opened with a memorable theme tune, arranged as an orchestral disco, which had been the rage in the mid 1970s (and inspired the “The Love Boat” theme.)
But the melody actually originated in a Love Theme for the George Peppard movie “Five Days From Home” (1978) with composer credit for the movie given to film/pop arranger/composer Bill Conti (who had written the hit theme tune from the film “Rocky”); The melody also had a lyric written by Norman Gimbel under the vocal title “Come With Me Now” which had been written for the movie in 1978.
