THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Here's the Full List of 285 Songs Cleared for THE WONDER YEARS: THE COMPLETE SERIES DVD Release...

TimeLife.comI've been posting news about this October's release of THE WONDER YEARS - COMPLETE SERIES on DVD for for a bit now, and on the heels of the box set specs on three highly detailed configurations of the set - Standard, "The Experience" and one that's being limited to just 500 copies - The Signature Edition - the big looming question has now been answered... a question that often plagues classic series' DVD releases: What about the music? The folks at StarVista Entertainment and Time-Life have worked diligently to clear over 96% of the music used in the ABC series, with 285 new song clearances added to the 116 instances of Joe Cocker's "With a Little Help from My Friends," which served as the series' theme song.
