Hi, Gary I am a college student who wasn’t even born when Cheers started, but every time your song comes on in the bars here in Columbus everybody has a great time singing with it. That song is timeless. All the best,

Hello, My name is Ciko Mfenyana from South Africa. I was 12 years old when Cheers came on our TV screens, and although I did not understand much English at the time I never missed an episode of the show only so I could hear the song at the beginning and the end of the show. After the series ended it meant the end of the song for me and I remember feeling heavy sadness when it happened. The ruling Apartheid government of the time had made sure that we as black people had very little access to technologies like computers and the internet as they did with everything else and so it was only to be until the year 2000 when I could hear the song again from a website I happened to stumble across while surfing the net at varsity, the song was used by some student for his webpage and when I heard it it was completely unexpected and I just started crying and crying uncontrollably losing it in front of everybody in the students communal computer lab as the song just instantly threw me back all those many years ago when music was the only good thing in my little world. Thank you guys for creating this memory for me. Regards, Ciko Mfenyana Department of Biochemistry (Louw Laboratory) Faculty of Science Stellenbosch University

My wife and I never missed a “Cheers” show. And, your theme song is the rock on which this program was built. One of the most recognizable ever written; catchy, melodic, and great lyrics. Congrats

Hello Gary, Just wanted to say something which you must have heard a million times. Thank you for the the song you know the one always makes me feel better about life when things get tough now and again… All the best,
hey gary! the cheers theme song has inspired me ever since I heard the first chord many, many years ago… keep up the great work!

Hi Gary, Just a quick note regarding the Cheers theme tune As a child growing up in the 80’s, this was my favourite show and the beautiful theme tune always struck a chord with me It is without a doubt the best and most poignant theme tune / song ever written and always takes me back to those happy days. All credit to you, you’ve done a remarkable thing. Regards, Ryan
Hi Gary, I love the Cheers song but Punky Brewster was my childhood! I was so thrilled to see it on iTunes and I immediately downloaded it. Those were the great old days! Thanks for you great songs. Jenny

For songwriters everywhere, your story about the Cheers theme song is one of the best I’ve ever read. If there were a website devoted to the stories behind the songs, I would be on it all the time. “Where everybody knows your name” has been my favorite when I heard it at the age of ten and is still a wonderful song today. I’m glad to see you’re still at it Gary, keep up the good work!

Hi Gary, I’ve always loved the Cheers theme, but it was only tonight, well this morning (it’s 4am here), that I realised how much of a story was behind it. I hope you’re glad to hear that your music does inspire people in the world today, and I thank you for bringing that much into our lives.

I work in an office in London and we have a television in our kitchen. At 12:30pm each day I and a colleague go to the kitchen under the pretence of making a cup of coffee. What we in fact do, is “rock out” to your song from ‘Cheers’. We don’t bother watching the programme, we just walk back into the office as soon as your song finishes and no one is none the wiser! Just read the ‘story behind Cheers’ on your website. It’s the best story I’ve read in years!
I wanted to tell you how much I LOVE and cherish the theme for cheers. It is truly the best theme song in the history of television. I really love your voice. It is so incredible how music can rip you right back into an exact moment in time. It takes right back to one night when I was 8 years old. Nothing special happened other than your song played and it made me happy. I didn’t understand the words, I just knew I was alive and life was going to be an interesting ride. I hope you still writing. Regards, Abby Ball
So glad I discovered your website..full of beautiful memories. And I’m not even from Boston! (originally from Chicago.Go Cubs Go!)
Dear Gary, I just wanted to thank you for writting “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”… As a child, growing up in Former Yugoslavia, Cheers was one of our favorite shows, and I think that intro song had much to do with it… though at the time my English was poor, somehow song’s message was understood… I recently heard the song and it reminded me of some happy times with my family… Reading about how much work and chance went into the song makes one only appreciate it even more thanks again! Best, Mirsad
Great song “Cheers”……love the song Gary………..always forget all my troubles when I hear the song and the show starts…….it’s running on one of the Sat. channels as I write Love to see you come to Ireland…..best wishes for the future. Regards, Tony Mulvany
Hi Gary, I’ve just finished listening to a half hour radio show in the UK on Radio 4 where Stephen Merchant (The Office) fondly looks back to the early days of Cheers. I’m so glad I took the trouble to find your site to get a more in depth story of how your delightful song actually made it to Cheers. Fascinating how stuff comes together, to create magical connections! This radio programme was a little gem which could quite easily be the impetus for me to find the wonderful, hilarious, warm, world of Cheers once again so ably introduced by your gorgeous song. All the best to you in your future endeavours, & thanks. Pat
You know, Gary has written a lot more songs then that one, so how about a big round of applause for all of the other great music Mr. Portnoy has written that is meaningful and artistic. Bravo to you and your extensive career in music. Well done!
Hi Gary, Just want to let you know that someone in some town in Holland still now and then sings the song you and Judy wrote so many years ago. Me. I have sung that song my whole life ever since the Cheerssitcom came into my living room. It has always been powerfull and it still is. That’s almost frightning! How cool is that?! I’ve just read the story behind the cheerstheme. Wow, the universe works in mysterious ways. I had to spill my heart. Thanks, greets Julian
Well for some reason it’s taken me almost 30 years to get curious. Many times I’ve wondered who wrote that wonderful song that I love so much but by the end of the episode I never thought to check the credits. I was a huge Cheers fan when it first ran and recently I discovering reruns were airing in the wee hours. With the advent of the DVR this wasn’t a problem. For months now it’s my wife and I’s nightly ritual to get in bed and watch two episodes of Cheers. Well most nights anyway (hey, I’m 57!). I read the history behind your song on your website and it’s true…the song has truly endured. I still love it as much now as ever. I also still get annoyed at the later and shorter version. The real proof is in the pudding, though. My favorite invention of the last decade is what we call the bump button. That magical little 30 second advance on DVR’s that makes commercials (and theme songs) go away. I have never used it on your song, not once. It too is part of the ritual…and we enjoy it every single night. We thank you for that. Best wishes and best of luck.

Love The Cheers Theme. Actually heard it the first time in the sitcom “Friends” where Joey is listening to that song on the tv in his hotel room and is feeling homesick.
Columbus, OH USA
Gary, Just wanted to thank you for your WONDERFUL theme to Cheers. It encapsulated the show perfectly and it continues to bring warmth and smiles to people everywhere who hear it. It truly is a work of art! It should be in the top 3 theme songs of all time – if not number one. I really miss the heyday of TV themes and feel we’ve lost that magic today. Once again, THANKS Gary! With much respect, Peter Miller
Hi Gary, Just heard a program about ‘Cheers’ on Radio 4 in UK, and heard you had a website. I thought I would tell you that I grew up on Cheers and I love your song. I loved the whole program. The thought of going somewhere where people care about you is very comforting. Thanks for the lovely song and may God bless you. Ursula

Huron, OH USA
Gary, In our day to day lives we often forget to thank people for the contributions they make. Sometimes it is just a minor thing that makes someone’s day a little better and sometimes it is something much greater. When you wrote the theme song for Cheers you probably did not know that it would touch people and have the affect it has so many years later. Every time I hear the song I am taken back in time. The lyrics are as relevant today as they were back then. “Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.” The song is timeless and it is priceless. Just want to say thank you. JL Nelson

Hallo Gary, after almost twenty years I’m watching Cheers again, I casually listened your theme song on YouTube. It’s a jump in the past … and it’s sublime! Thank you Gary, you did something great It’s not just the music, not the lyrics alone, maybe the ensemble or because it’s so catchy. I don’t know, I’m not a musician … fact is, everytime I hear you tune I feel good. Thank you Gary, sincerely
Roberto Inzerillo firstname.lastname@example.org
Gary— I was just reading your story on your website. I went there after watching the Cheers finale for about the 20 time on the Reelz Channel this afternoon and had always wondered what the story was behind the theme song…even in this day of DVRs (yes, I have Cheers recorded on my DVR daily and watch it to put me in a good mood), I always let the theme song play through and sing along with it. It is a classic, timeless in the message, and with the beginning chords, a calling to come and sit with friends, as after time, after watching Cheers for all these years, you really feel like the characters are your friends. What a great story! It was great looking at your websiteall the best to you!

Just want to let you know that our national TV station is sending out “Cheers” Season 1 weekdays at 11pm. And yes as many people say, never press fast forward when the theme song is on! We watch TV in our bedroom and I have a 5.1 surround system in bed! I can say your music really sounds fantastic! Even the quality from the first episode was so brilliant! Hope you are doing fine and friendly greetings from Belgium, Chris.

I dearly love your website and I always did watch Cheers when it was on. Now I watch all the reruns. All the songs that you have have written and recorded including the theme song from Cheers called “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”, you would when Grammy Awards and hit big on the Music Charts. All the radio stations here in the United States and around the world would play those songs, they would all be smash hits! Well keep up the great work Gary. Thanks for helping everyone making Cheers the greatest program ever! Have a great life and God bless you and your family! As the cast would say when George Wendt comes in to the bar, Norm!

Let’s all take it easy on the Cheers theme….the best song this man ever wrote was the theme of Punky Brewster. That song changed my life and is the best theme song of the 80’s. Maybe the world is blind, Or just a little unkind. Don’t know. Seems you can’t be sure Of anything anymore. Although, You maybe lonely and then, One day you’re smiling again. Every time I turn around, I see the girl that turns my world around. Standing there… Everytime I turn around, Her spirit’s lifting me right off the ground. What’s gonna be? Guess we’ll just wait and see. Pure genious.
I’ve been addicted to the cheer’s song since I was like 8 years old and I love the long version much better then the shorten one. Now that I have the keeper CD Gary Portnoy’s other song I really like them too, they are very insightful and have a happy upbeat. Thanks for a good CD!

I just wanted to say not only have you written the greatest television theme song, but your album is a great piece of work as well. You are a great inspiration to me as a writter and musician. Thank you for the great music, I hope to play for you some day.
Boston, MA USA
In 2005, I had a pneumonia that was accompanied by deadened tissue around my larynx, which caused my voice to sound a few octaves below that of Tom Waits. This lasted months. As I was getting better, I’d sing the Cheers theme every day in the shower to gauge my voice. When, one day, I reached the part “Where everybody knows your name”, and my voice didn’t completely disappear, I knew things were on the mend.
Dear Gary, I love your theme song to “Cheers”. I also enjoyed many of the episodes, who could not enjoy Sam’s chargargrin humor, and Diane’s savvy regarding a good “Shakesperian” quote when needed. I hope I can access your web site, but even this is great. I loved Kelsey Grammer along side BeBe Newith, she was so dark, her character reallly gave substance to the show. Rhea Pearlman was always over the top with her multiple storys at a moments glance, she had storys about any number of exhusbands and exboyfriends that would find themselves on the other side of the door by the next day. I guess you could compromise that was so much of the essence of “Cheers” a mad rush to the end, and who gets caught making up the losses, which Diana always had such a great way of capitaizing all of Sam’s victorys and making them seem so trivial. Hope to hear from you soon. Gloria

Watching Cheers always reminded me of when I lived up north. Your theme song “where everbody knows your name” is ever so true in my home state of Rhode Island. Watching Cheers year after year inspired me to create a website about: The Food, People, Places and Nostalgia of the state of Rhode Island. Keep up your terrific work, and your new website looks great!
Gary, I sure smiled when I heard the theme song from Cheers, Boy!!Did that bring back a wonderful time, the show is so missed by many! I am off to listen to the clips of your track ,and again, want to thank you again for a trip back in time …Great sound! Who isn’t afraid of airplanes now a days:) Good Luck and Blessings to you!

OK, so it’s not Gary’s version of Cheers, but…. Back in the 80’s there was a short lived German version of Cheers entitled “Prost Helmut”, which literally means “Cheers, Norm”. This was not the later version, which was the same as ours, except with German overdubs. But, rather, a different spin, in that, the names were changed and so was the setting for the bar a German tavern! Anyway, here’s the link for the theme song with German lyrics!! (It’s a hoot!) You may have to right click on it and save it to your computer first and may even have to convert it to stereo before you can play it. Media Player is funny about mono files. Enjoy!! http://home.arcor.de/norm_morn/Prost%20Helmut.wav

Hello Gary, stumbled upon your site when researching the Cheers theme for a college project. The story makes a very interesting read, I never knew that it took so many attempts to write the perfect theme, but more than 20 years on it still stands up as one of the best if not the best of it’s era. Nice one!
What an absolutely charming and inspiring story. Well done & thank you. A real fan of “where everybody know your name” & Cheers.

To the gentlemen that attacked Gary about his childhood… well my friend, Gary was an acquaintance of mine from High School and I’m sorry to tell you Gary was not only voted most likely to succeed, he was well admired and respected by his peers for being not only incredibly talented but a good human being. Sorry to disappoint you but Gary’s been class all the way, from childhood on!… (I wasn’t going to write anything on this site but after reading that attack felt someone who actually had met and knew Gary needed to speak up…)

Hi Gary, i am also called Llewellyn. I loved cheers, i found it quite addictive. It reminded me of the life i used to have with friends in the bar before i lost my legs in the pork pie factory (pastry division) The dumbs guy behind the bar always reminded me of the boss there he always pulled flat pints. Anyway must be going now time for the mogadon and strepsils eases the pain. Cheers!!! Llewellyn

Glad to hear about your website. Your song was the first one that I made am emotional connection to. I was a little kid when my dad changed jobs rather suddenly. I can remember driving out of town and hearing “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” on the radio and feeling the sadness of leaving my old neighborhood and all my childhood friends. Then as time went on, the very same song made me feel happy whenever I heard it. Quite a neat trick!! Thanks and best of luck.

It’s amazing that a song such as theme for Cheers, can still arouse a host of feelings and you simply cannot deny the urge to sing along It was a real nice way to end my day hearing the song once more ~ Cheers guys Deb Stevens ‘from a whisper to a roar, ovarian cancer silent no more’

not being an american and only being a teen means i haven’t heard much of you or your work but from the samples so far you seem great, will keep an eye on your site for sure!
I’ve been looking for your song everywhere. Thanks for writing it, something about it really hits me in a tender spot!
Very nice. LIke many others, I wondered who composed such a great song. Brings many memories for me, good and bad, and I know almost every word. Looking forward to the new CD, I’m sure it outdoes all original works. Keep up the good work.

Imagine..sitting in a classroom on campus…just to have our professor mention the impact of television theme music upon society….and yes, the theme from “Cheers” as the topic of discussion. What an impact! A lasting one indeed..makes one smile……
I totally love this song. I am very hip (like Nelly, Usher, Mariah Carey hip.) but i still love my cheers. I watch it everyday it comes on. And can you believe that im only 16. You really inspired me Gary to be come the singer I am today with this song. Oh and by the way the show always keeps me laughting and smiling. LOVE ME!!!!!!!

I have a forum where we have a dozen regulars daily who are really special and we created together, an actual place it is a jazz cafe, and we are voting on a theme song for our forum…I am the administrator, and you are up against other great pieces of music with similiar sentiment , but I’ll tell you buddy, in my mind, you nailed it with THIS SONG. Jazz or not, this song just gets you right in the heart. Nicely done. I wish you every happiness in life, health and love! kindly max

Gary, I was so fascinated and impressed by your music that I can’t even describe. I really can’t remember, when I heard such a great music for the last time. And, because I’m a musician and a singer, too, I wish you all the luck that you need for your success, because you deserve it and also need it in a world of fame. Best wishes to you! Vesna M.

Please don’t laugh, I am in tears right now. Many years ago when Cheers debuted, I fell in love with this wonderful piece of music. I did not watch the show but I had to listen to its theme. One day, I heard the full version and I laughed my head off, which was not good because I was driving at the time. I started searching for the CD but could not find it. Not even find anyone who knew what the hell I was talking about. Today, I decided to Goggle the song and it took me to Amazon. Damn, there it was on Keeper. I bought two copies, one for myself and one for a gift. At least now I can show people I am not crazy. =) Tonight I Googled you and found your site, what a thrill. I know, guys are not suppose to cry but damn, my search has ended. Thank you so very much for bringing this wonderful piece into my heart and others that I play it for.

Anyway Gary…I just wanted to let you know how your talent has reached the core of the people who are your fans. Rave On! Liz

Dear Gary, I went through a really hard time back in the mid90s. I started using the chorus from “I Still Believe In Me” from “Fame” as my .sig in all my emails and Usenet posts. Focusing on that really helped. It’s a beautiful song, and I wanted to thank you for creating it. Best of luck with you new CD. Laurie

Hey gary. I thought it’d be nice to drop you a short fan message. I’m a 35yo DJ from Cologne Germany for various styles of music. Your famous Cheers Theme song is my opener for my programmes for at least 10 years now and has become a brand for me as a DJ. Thank you for giving us an alltime classic. Thought you’d like to hear this kinda response from Germany. Keep on rockin’!! Yours, Robbie
I just wanted to write to say that ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved the theme song for Cheers, sadly all I get to see of Cheers is the reruns now and being only 16 I get laughed at for even watching those!! But, finally I can get a full version of “Where Everybody Knows Your Name” so my friends can laugh all they like but I’ll get the last laugh when I subject them all to the song next time they come round … just as soon as I can afford it!!
Just want to say I happen to see the Biography of Cheers on Tv two nights ago. I came in the middle of it, but it was great. Gary your Cd’s make great gifts. God bless, Nancy
Cheers has always been my favorite. I have it as my theme song on my cell phone. the song is great..

I heard Ted Danson remark on the new Cheers DVD that he had a moment of awareness a few years back when it suddenly struck him that he was the actor that got to play Sam Malone. I come from Ireland and got to attend a Cheers episode recording in Paramount studios. I still get chills when I think how fortunate I was to get to see the chemistry of the actors in that wonderful series live on stage before me. You must get shivers down your spine when you think that you were the one to write, compose and sing this amazing and beautiful song, a song that will live in infamy. Thanks for your genius. Regards, Ray McCormick

Gary, from such a talented and interesting guy you seem so modest. I will get the opportunity to show people what a great song ‘Where Everybody Knows Your Name” really is. It’s about time someone did what everybody wishes they would do and release it to radio! I will make you proud, I promise.

I loved reading the story behind the song Cheers..what a great read! Also remember all the songs you wrote with my mother.

Anway My mother says hi and hopes you are well.

Hi Gary! Along with being a musician, a songwriter, you are also a therapist…you certainly drew out emotions when you presented that song to the show and the public, every time I hear it, it brings a tear to my eye…in the nicest kind of way. We love you and look forward to hearing more from you.
Hi, I am a 36 year old wife and mum of 3 girls living in Yorkshire, England. I am a massive fan of yourself and your music. My favourite song of all time is the Cheers Theme, Where Everybody Knows Your Name. It was one of the best parts of the programme, or the best!

Whoa! I don’t know what glasses the previous writer was wearing when he read that article, because when I read it, what Gary said was that he ‘still gets a warm, fuzzy feeling whenever he hears the “Mary Tyler Moore” theme’. The article made no mention of his childhood good, bad, warm, fuzzy or otherwise!!
New York, NY USA
I find it hard to believe you had a warm and fuzzy childhood like you said in a newspaper article. I believe, you didn’t get on very well with your immediate family, at all. You obviously lied about your childhood, which is fine, if you want others to believe you are a warm and fuzzy loving man.
WOW ..I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!

Hi Gary, I own your terrific CD got it through Amazon. I listen to it constantly. Can’t get over the wonderful songs, the originality, the beauty of them. Congratulations on a CD that’s not based solely on the one hit as so many other albums are. Although I love “Cheers”, you’ve grown way beyond that. This album is great. These songs are awesome. Thank you for them. Bob

yeah…i’m a songwriter too…it was nice to hear the story behind the song that changed your life…after all these years the theme from cheers still rings true and sounds fresh…thanks to the fact that you recorded it in a simple, timeless style that dates it, not in a particular time…but more as a rich, warm, shared memory…if opportunity ever drops out the sky like that for me…i hope i have sure enough hands to catch it, like you did.

It is fortunate to have in one’s life such things as the ability of a simple song to evoke a wash of the warmest memories; “Where Everbody Knows Your Name” is as inseparable from “Cheers” as each is from those memories.

Hello from Texas Gary …I love your songs and I think you’re a very special person. I was wondering if you ever looked at danger (or the things YOU considered dangerous) as fun. When one turns (for instance) his fears into a rollercoaster ride, then fear becomes madness and pleasure. Prolly the best kinda pleasure on earth! LiltwistedNTexas Laura

G’day Gary! No matter what anyone ever tells you mate, I can tell you that beyond a shadow of a doubt, your song “Where everybody knows your name”, is STILL as popular today, as it was when we all 1st heard it. To think it’s been spread so far & heard by so many!! I still enjoy watching reruns of “Cheers”, & ALWAYS get goosebumps when your song comes on! I read your story behind its creation, and know that things happen in our lives for a reason…yours was to create a song the world would fall in love with. Thank you, for giving us a song that will never be forgotten! CHEERS Deb Stevens Hope your cd is available down here????
Debbie Stevens email@example.com

Good luck with the CD. My honest, humble opinion, however (now that I’m here), is that there’s just too many of these personal relationship songs out there. I mean the whole style has basically killed folk music as a American musical genre. Hundreds of these songs are probably written daily. Where are the songs that actually stir the heart in these post 911 times? I guess maybe our little American lives are not a source for rich music anymore. Just my two cents.

Back when Cheers first started, I went to my local record store and ordered the seven inch version of the theme. After that, I looked in vain for many years for more by Gary. That was long before the internet. So finding this site is really interesting. Good for you.
No one could ever sing your songs as honestly as you do…it’s a lovely site, especially the way the text gradually appears. Hooray for you. Ruth. P.S. And just think…once again, the door to your room…
Love your music….look forward to hearing more of your music.

The closing section of the Cheers theme still gives me chills because I used to watch it in syndication at 11PM just before I went to bed. I get the same association with the end of Laverne & Shirley, when I went to bed earlier. I also liked the Mr. Belvedere theme; didn’t know that was by your hand, too, Gary! Thanks for the tunes.

When I was a little kid I wasn’t allowed to watch Cheers because it was set in a bar! So I would watch the opening credits with my parents and then it was off to bed. I fell in love with “Where Everybody Knows Your Name”. As I got older, I got to watch the whole show and it became my alltime favorite. My grandfather lived with us and he never watched TV, but he would join us for Cheers. I have such warm memories of those days and your song was a big part of it. Thanks, Gary.
