DAYS is an absolute classic and is practically the same opening they have had since 1965. The daytime platform will not be the same without the hourglass and Mac Carey's infamous dialouge.
It is iconic and the most well-known soap opening of all time....adding cast photos would just PISS me off and the opening would lose its uniqueness and its class. It would be JUST LIKE all the other shows on CBS/ABC with their flashy "modern" (ie. UNORIGINAL and UNDAYTIME) and "hip" (ie. BORING).
Like others have said, if it aint broke, don't try and fix it and that rings especially true for DAYS!
Daaaamn RIGHT! :hail:
Sometimes when the show is SO unrecognizable (like last year and earlier this year and the end of JER's run), the opening theme brings a smile to my face, it truly softens my stance...it is just so identifiable with such great moments and memories.
