Josh Kelley and Keb' Mo Pen Mike & Molly Theme Song
Josh Kelley co-wrote "I See Love" with Keb' Mo,' which is featured as the theme song to the new CBS sitcom Mike & Molly.
"The Mike & Molly theme song came around sort of randomly," Josh says. "In 2004, I called up Keb' Mo' and said, 'I'd really love to write a song with you.' He called me back and said, 'Let's do it.' I drove up to his house and we sat around for a while and we wrote this song called 'I See Love.' He put it on his album.
"Probably six months ago, he called me and said, 'There's a TV show called Mike and Molly that wants to use the song because they came to my live show and heard it. The creators of the show loved it.' I didn't think much about it.
"The next thing you know, he's calling me and saying that they took it. It's funny because now I'm a really big fan of the show and every time I watch it, I get to hear this cool song."
He is considering recording a country version of "I See Love" on his next album. "The lyrics tell a story and I think they are country lyrics. I definitely think it can be a country song for sure.
"It's like the guy has been around the world and done all of these little things and it's in his journey that he learns how to actually see love for what it is," he says of the song. "It's traveling that makes it possible for his brain to see love the way he should be seeing it and love that has been right in front of his face his whole life."
