Community Theme Song (Plus Lyrics)

November 13, 2010


Comminity theme song!! Community is one of those shows that did not start all-out funny. It either just grew on me or really became funnier as the episodes progressed. Recently I’ve heard a line i can’t count the reasons i should stay on the radio and I have decided to post community theme song and plus lyrics

Have you ever had a question who sings the community theme song? The show’s theme song is “At Least It Was Here” by American indie rock band, The 88. The song is originally part of their 2008 release Not Only… But Also. And, since September of this year, it also became part of the the show’s first-season official soundtrack called Community (Music from the Original Television Series).

I first heard of The 88 from an episode of HIMYM. Although I did not really think of them as a fictional band, it’s just cool to know that they’ve reached some form of mainstream success.

There’s another song—”Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare” by Matt & Kim—which is commonly mistaken for the theme song. The song was prominently played in the pilot and in commercials. It, however, is not part of the soundtrack.

Below is the opening sequence of the show featuring “At Least It Was Here.”

At Least It Was Here


Community theme song lyrics – at least it was here lyrics

Give me your hands
Show me the door
I cannot stand
To wait anymore
Somebody said
Be what you’ll be
We could be old, and cold, and dead on the sea

But I love you more than words can say
I can’t count the reasons I should stay

[Verse 1]
Give me some rope
Tie me to dream
Give me the hope to run out of steam
Somebody said it could be here
We could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year

I can’t count the reasons I should stay
One by one they all just fade away

Iʼm tied to the wait-and-sees
Iʼm tired of that part of me
That makes up a perfect lie
To keep us between
But hours turn into days
So watch what you throw away
And be here to recognize
Thereʼs another way
