Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed watching Trial of Rosie O'Neil. I especially loved the theme song. Can you confirm who sang it? I thought it was Carol King but when I was on the IMDB website they said it was Carly Simon. Also is it possible to purchase the song anywhere?
Well ... you are partially right.
Carole King wrote the song ("I wish I knew") and she did sing it, but not on the titles. She sang it on camera in an episode we did ... where Tyne Daly was also a guest star ... and she sang it occasionally in concert.
Melissa Manchester was the artist who sang the lyric in the first season and for part of the second season when we experimented with using just the music, sans lyric, for the main title.
Don't you just hate it when the answer is longer than the question?
Oh yes, I am going to look into where one can purchase the song. I have an autographed by Ms King copy of the sheet music, but have never heard if she put it on one of her albums (do they still call them albums?).
By the way, for those who don't know, "I wish I knew" was the answer to the Carole King question posed musically, "What does the future hold?"
