    Does anyone know where I can find a list of the songs used on Rags to Riches? I've been trying to find them for months and can only remember a few of them.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi, Chris... I've been working on this myself.  I only remember a few of them.  I've been trying to find my tapes.  Here's what I have so far... Can anyone else add to this list?

    Dancing in the Street (from the episode Born to Ride)

    Witness (from the episode Born to Ride)

    Please Mr. Postman (from the Pilot)

    Book of Love (from Vegas Rock)

    I Will Follow Him (from First Love)

    You're No Good (from First Love)

    Think (from Patty's Mom)

    Shake, Rattle and Roll (from That's Cheating)

    Happy Birthday, Sweet Sixteen (from Sweet 16)

    Oh, Boy (from Patty's Mom)

    Yakity Yak (from the Pilot)

    I'll try to add more later today.

    Chris,

    Here's some more I came up with... If you can't tell, I'm a total Rags to Riches geek. This is my all-time favorite TV show.

    Everyday (from That's Cheating)
    Drift Away (from Sweet 16)
    Heat Wave (from the Pilot)
    Chantilly Lace (from the Pilot)
    To Know Him Is to Love Him (from Once in a Lifeguard)
    High-Heeled Sneakers (from Vegas Rock)
    Think (from Patty's Mom)
    Dream Lover (from the Pilot)
    Teenager in Love (from First Love)
    You're a Wonderful One (from That's Cheating)
    Jailhouse Rock (from the Pilot)
    Over and Over (from Wilderness Blues)
    Itty Bitty Pretty One (from Once in a Lifeguard)

    That's all I have so far... Some episodes are much blurrier than others in my head. I seem to remember the Diane-focused episodes the best.

    Hello everybody: I love that series, I have been trying to find a soundtrack cd, but I think it never was made. Do you know what is the original perform artist for every song you got? I will really aprecciate it. Regards, Silvia

    This is Amazing! I can't believe I found others who love this show as much as I do but it is the web so i should have thought to look here sooner! I was very young when the show started but I watche all episodes and remember crying when it went of the air.

    You guys have a great list of songs going...I only have a few tapes myself.

    But your missing one very important song...which is my fav. song EVER.... "What becomes of the broken hearted" by Paul Young. It was Diane's break up song!!

    I'm slowly adding all the music for each episode to this guide. Click on each episode link to find out what music was used in each episode. This information can be found under the notes section. For example click here for the music used in the pilot episode.

    I loved this show, too. It was a great show. Wish it would be shown in syndicated reruns somewhere.

    I'm a first timer to this but in the 80's i was a huge Rags To Riches fan.Ikept up with alot of the music on the show.Iwill have to look through my old papers and tapes but I think I do know most of what was played.I was only 13 when the show was on but it turned me inyo a fan of the songs from the 50's and 60's.
