Hill Street Blues free piano sheet music by Mike Post
About the song
"Hill Street Blues" is the title of an American TV police drama, that aired on NBC starting with 1981.
Debuting with winning eight Emmy awards and getting a total of 98 nominations during its time, it’s been named The All-Time Best Cop Show in 1993’s TV Guide.
Even recently, in 2014, the show is remembered as being "on the short list of the most influential TV shows ever made". Whether through shared actors, writers, directors or through stylistic and thematic complexity, its DNA can be found in nearly every great drama produced in the 30-plus years since it debuted".
We are presenting the piano sheet for this TV show’s theme song, with the same name.
The theme song for "Hill Street Blues" was written by Mike Post, with the aid of guitarist Larry Carlton. Post, being an American multi-Grammy and Emmy Award winning composer, is well-known for writing other TV theme songs such as "NYPD Blue", "The Rockford Files", "Law & Order", "Quantum Leap", "L.A. Law" or "Magnum, P.I.", just to name the most famous ones.
In his extensive career, Post also worked as a songwriter and arranger, being a fan of rock, pop and soul and using, alongside his vocals, the guitar, the bass guitar and the keyboard.
Associated with acts such as Mason Williams, Kenny Rogers, the First Edition or Van Halen, Mike Post produced a nice theme song that lets us now share with you its piano sheets.
Being an instrumental and slow song, mostly using piano, the theme song could be considered a dull one, but it fits the show’s action and characters and that’s what is most important in TV theme songs.
