The thing about "Morning Much Better," though, is that I can't hear it without thinking of the game show Family Feud, which debuted in 1976 with Richard Dawson as its kiss-distributing host. Although the show's theme song (written by Walt Levinski) doesn't borrow any melodic ideas from the single (written by Ten Wheel Drive band members Michael Zager and Aram Schefrin), they both share a distinctive banjo + blaring horn DNA.
