Where Everybody Knows Your Name (Cheers)

Written by Judy Hart Angelo and Gary Portnoy (and sung by him, too), this comforting tune conjures up images of a place where the lonely and downtrodden can find a friend to lean on, where people can forget about their troubles for a while, and yes, "where everybody knows your name." And that's exactly what Cheers did for 275 episodes from 1982 to 1993.
