Love, love this multi-talented actress. From the silly, Who’s The Boss, to her great tenure on the new Dallas, to her role as judge on Law & Order: SVU, Ugly Betty, and of course OLTL, and so much more. She should have received this star years ago,as she is such a shining star herself.

Perry Botkin Jr., Composer of The Young and the Restless’ ‘Nadia’s Theme’, Has Died At 87

When you think of the all-time best theme songs for your favorite television shows and one that stands the test of time, to many, there is none greater than “Nadia’s Theme” which became the theme song for The Young and the Restless.

The beautiful arrangement has become signature to the world of daytime drama and the opening credits of the CBS Daytime drama from its beginning in 1973.

On Saturday, news spread that “Nadia’s Theme” composer, Perry Botkin Jr, had passed away.  Botkin’s friend, TV writer John Scheinfeld, announced his death on Facebook, noting that Botkin died this past Monday at the age of 87,

Scheinfeld shared: “Perry was a magnificently talented composer, arranger, producer and story-teller, perhaps best known for composing the Grammy-winning Nadia’s Theme for the CBS soap The Young and the Restless.”

Perry was Oscar nominated and a Grammy-winner in his lifetime.  Among the most notable titles featuring Botkin’s work include: Happy Days, Mork and Mindy, Laverne and Shirley, Adam’s Rib and The Smothers Brothers Show. However, Botkin is most known for Nadia’s Theme which he composed along with Barry De Vorzon.

After the theme became the beloved opening of Y&R, it gained more fame when it was used in a montage for Romanian gymnast Nadia Comāneci’s routines in the 1976 Olympic games on ABC’s Wide World of Sports.  Decades later, Mary J. Blige used the sample of the song and made it relevant again for her hit, “No More Drama”

Another song by Botkin Jr. and DeVorzon, “Bless the Beasts & Children” was Oscar nominated, sung by The Carpenters, and also sung at various times on Y&R.

To honor Perry Botkin Jr., check out this compilation of the opening title sequence from Y&R over the years featuring “Nadia’s Theme” below

Share your thoughts on the passing of Perry Botkin Jr., in the comment section, and if you think Y&R has the greatest soap theme song of all-time, or do you think that honor goes to another theme?
