Joan Jett Sings “Love is All Around,” the Theme Song from The Mary Tyler Moore Show

There’s lots of sturm und drang here in America–enough that we didn’t get to pay our respects to Mary Tyler Moore, an icon of 1960s and 1970s television.

Above, we give you our favorite tribute. Joan Jett performing a sweet rocking cover of “Love is All Around,” the original theme song from The Mary Tyler Moore Show. If you came of age during the 70s, you’ll surely know the song.

Jett’s performance was recorded on The Late Show With David Letterman back in 1996.

Mary, you will be missed.

    40 1/2 years ago I saw Ms. Jett and her knockout band. Blew the fucking doors off the hall that night. She was sweet 16 or thereabouts then. Did not appreciate that she would have as much of an impact on young women as Ms. Moore did in her day. Love you Joanie!
