Bill Conti – Theme from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous (Come With Me Now)

“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.

    I loved this show back in the day- a guilty pleasure if there ever was one. In addition to this soaring theme song, "Lifestyles" had a secret ingredient- Robin's breathless Anglo-
    Aussie tabloid voice combined with that of David Perry (brother of sports filmmaker Bud Greenspan), the smoothest voice-over guy who ever lived.

    Donald J. Trump's father; Fred Trump, was a very poor man! Fred Trump started with nothing at age 15 and started building garages in New York. When Mr. Fred Trump died, he left behind for his children a net worth of over $100 million dollars. Nobody gave it to Fred; he earned it!!! Anyone who I know of, who has real wealth, earned it. Years and years of hard work, dedication, set-backs, head-aches and heart-aches, tragedy's. Nobody gets rich for free.
    P-Diddy, had to work his butt off and sell his soul for what he has today.
    Anita Baker, worked and sang like hell in nightclubs, up in Detroit to catch a break. So, get your shit together people!!! What are you willing to do????????

    This theme was also used back in the 1970's and 1980's for a Los Angeles local show called AM Los Angeles which was on KABC-TV Channel 7. Regis Philban use to be the host for this show in it's early years and Steve Edwards in the later years.
