MUSIC: Charles Fox / LYRICS: Norman Gimbel

Let the time flow; Let the love grow
Let the rain shower; Let the rose flower
Love, it seeks; Love, it finds
Love, it conquers; Love, it binds

We come to each other from different worlds
Drawn to each other by the love inside of us
We give to each other our different worlds
Long as we can do it
Life, we're gonna breeze right through it

Let the time flow; Let the love grow
Let the rain shower; Let the rose flower
Love, it seeks; Love, it finds
Love, it conquers; Love, it binds

We reach for each other from different worlds
With love for each other that will stand the test of time
We're up to the challenge of different worlds
With this love inside us
There is nothing can divide us

Let the time flow; Let the love grow
Let the rain shower; Let the rose flower
Love, it seeks; Love, it finds
Love, it conquers; Love, it binds
Love, it seeks and Love, it finds
Love, it conquers
Love, it binds-ahhhhhh
Love, it seeks; Love, it finds
Love, it conquers; Love, it binds

*****************************

Maureen McGovern sings the single version of "Different Worlds," the bouncy theme song from the TV series, "Angie" (ABC-TV, 1979-80). This song peaked at #18 on the charts.

Maureen had already recorded the popular theme songs for the 70s movies THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE ("The Morning After"), THE TOWERING INFERNO ("We May Never Love Like This Again"), and SUPERMAN ("Can You Read My Mind?") before she recorded "Different Worlds." She was later mentored by singer/songwriter Mel Torme, and went on to sing in the New York club/cabaret scene and to star on Broadway. She continues to perform and record.

Video is from the Season 1 opening credits of "Angie," over which "Different Worlds" was heard.

Audio from "Tube Tunes, Volume Two - The 70s and 80s" (Rhino Records, 1995).

Song written by Charles Fox & Norman Gimbel.
(They also wrote the theme songs for "Happy Days," "Laverne & Shirley" and "Wonder Woman";
Fox also wrote the "Love Boat" theme with Paul Williams).

************

"Angie" was a sitcom about a working-class waitress (Donna Pescow) who meets and marries one of her customers, a rich doctor (Robert Hays, who would soon star in the 1980 movie satire "Airplane"). The show was quite popular in its first season, but surprisingly lost its audience in its second (and final) season.

Pescow was a well-known star at the time, having just co-starred opposite John Travolta in "Saturday Night Fever." After "Angie," she went on to play daytime TV's first lesbian character on "All My Children."

Her TV mom, Doris Roberts, would go on to greater success in the 90s as Ray Romano's overbearing mother Marie on "Everybody Loves Raymond."

Debralee Scott, who played Angie's sister, had previously appeared on "Welcome Back Kotter" (as Hotsie Totsie, where she, too, played opposite John Travolta) and on "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" (as Mary's sister).

Debralee's life took a tragic turn in 2001 when her fiance, New York Port Authority Police Officer John Dennis (J.D.) Levi, died in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center:

In 2005, Debralee collapsed and spent several days hospitalized in a coma. She awoke and was discharged, and then died in her sleep at home several days later. She was 52. RIP.
