Brand New Life (The Theme from Who's the Boss)

1) Who's the Boss? is a sitcom that ran from 1984 to 1992. Were you a fan?
I would watch it but didn't make a habit of it

2) This week's song was composed by the show's producers, two men not known as songwriters. Have you ever tried your hand at songwriting? I have not

3) The lyrics tell us that, as we go through life, it's not uncommon to "lose a dream or two." Do you agree? Have you ever had to give up on a dream? I have--nothing major, though

4) Who's the Boss? was about a highly-paid executive who hires a housekeeper. In the 1980s, it was unusual because the exec was a woman and the housekeeper was a man. Do you believe a man can be as good at housework as a woman? of course

5) Though the show's star, Tony Danza, graduated from University of Dubuque and was prepared to be a teacher, he got sidetracked. Back in New York, he boxed and tended bar and fell into acting. He finally did teach in 2010, taking over a 10th grade English class. How many different occupations have you held? I would say 4

6) On the show, his daughter was played by Alyssa Milano. When she was a teenager, she rebelled against the show's producers by cutting off her long hair and wearing a pixie style. Were you a rebellious teen? well... interesting question... I wouldn't call myself rebellious but I didn't have a lot of parental supervision so I did what I wanted

7) "The Boss" was Judith Light, who had been known to TV audiences from her work on One Life to Live. She met Robert Desiderio on the set of the soap opera and they have been married more than 34 years. Tell us where one of your romances got started. one of my romances started with a direct message, he was witty and charming enough that I gave him the time of day

8) The show -- rebroadcast with subtitles -- was a hit in Italy, where it was known as Casalingo SuperpiĆ¹ (Super Housekeeper). Say something to us in Italian. Ciao Bella!

9) Random question -- Have you more recently watched the sun rise or set? sun set

Kind of hard to rebel when there's nothing to rebel against, isn't it.
