Hot Potato may be a special case in that its main themes covered multiple 80's genres: electronica and late-era disco

What is with these 20-year bumps?

"Wow, that's a really good question. Imma have to think about it."

<20 years pass...>

"Phew, I think I've finally settled on an answer. To my keyboard!"

Why not both?
On that note, I've always thought that the Classic Concentration theme sounded similar to "Second Time Around" by Shalimar. Interestingly enough, BL and CC shared the same composer, Paul Epstein.

The Davidson Squares theme gives me "Dilemma" vibes.
This one caused a bit of a debate on ATGS back in the day. I remember checking the liner notes (get off my lawn) to see if they sampled Stormy Sachs, but didnít see anything.

"We Have Far From Over At Home" also served as the theme to Wolpert's "Fast Friends" pilot, if memory serves.

I'd have to throw Blackout in the mix for the 80's.  Plenty of synth keyboards for sure...also wonder if the horns and/or drums were synth as well.

Also I'm of the opinion that Blackout is one of the most "game show-y" game show themes there is, regardless of time period.  One of my absolute favorites.

While we're on the subject, it's worth pointing out that the Blackout theme "borrows" quite liberally from the instrumental portions of "Far From Over" by (...you guessed it...) Frank Stallone, which itself was used as the theme for at least one unsold Wolpert pilot:

That show just set and shot the game at a different angle, which highlighted the depth of it.

Thanks for confirming what I suspected, though I seem to remember that being said years ago, as it was said that the Davidson version had a real love for Magic # for some reason.

The idea of a second prop also seemed suspicious given that it was, for many years, the most expensive prop ever built for the show.
