One of the best themes to one of the best sitcoms, the theme music for 'Sanford and Son,' from noted musician and producer Quincy Jones is seriously funky. 'Sanford and Son' starred comedian Redd Fox as the African-American answer to 'All in the Family''s Archie Bunker -- a junk dealer and widower living in Los Angeles with his son, played by Desmond Wilson. The show aired from 1972 to 1977.
