Shameless Theme Song Video and Shameless Theme Song Lyrics

March 2, 2011

Are you looking for music from shameless? Below you can find the lyrics for the luck you got (by the high strung) which is used as intro song for the American version of tv show shameless (2010)

This is primarily for the new U.S. television series on Showtime, and partially for the British series—for which the American series is based upon. The Luck You Got is the theme song for the American version of Shameless. I quite like this tv show, and I would definitely recommend you all to watch it.

Anyway, William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, nice.

What the luck you got having found this webpage on shameless theme song lyrics 🙂

The opening theme song for Shameless is entitled “The Luck You Got”. It is by the Detroit, Michigan-based band The High Strung. The High Strung has been around (I guess) since the 90s, but what struck me is their discography—they released 12 albums from 2000 to 2010. Talk about hard-working.

“The Luck You Got” is originally from their 2006-release Moxie Bravo. It is a shameless tv show song, but if you are a big fan you must already know 🙂

Below is the full version of “The Luck You Got”.

The High Stung – The Luck You Got

The High Strung’s “The Luck You Got” is a brilliant gem from their second album, “Moxie Bravo”. You’ll soon recognize this track as the theme song to Showtime’s original series “Shameless”, starring William H. Macy. Debuting Jan 9th, 2011

Below are the complete lyrics to the shameless tv show song.

Shameless Theme Song Lyrics – The High Strung the Luck You Got

Think of all the luck you got
Know that it’s not for naught
You were beaming once before
But it’s not like that anymore

Count all the moods you’ve known
Know they’re not stuck in stone
You were patient once before
But it’s not like that anymore

What is this down side

That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of

Round up the friends you got
Know that they’re not for naught
You were willing once before
But it’s not like that anymore

The time that you would never trade
Is equal to the effort made
You were simple once before
But it’s not like that anymore

What is this down side
That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of

What is this down side
That you speak of
What is this feeling
You’re so sure of

Of course, we won’t leave the Easterners behind. Shameless (the original, British, Channel 4), has a narration-style opening, so the theme song is not as definitive. It’s simply background music, and was composed by Englishman Murray Gold.
