Favorite TV Theme Songs?

Pop Culture Nerd has a great post listing her Favorite TV Theme Songs Ever. It includes Mission Impossible and M*A*S*H. Those are indeed great theme songs. Here are some of mine.

1. The Sopranos
2. Hawaii 5-0
3. Mission Impossible
4. Star Trek
5. True Blood (I’ve only rarely seen the show, but “Do Bad Things to You” is awesome.)
6. Game of Thrones
7. Jonny Quest
8. I Love Lucy
9. NCIS (Because whenever the show came on, the kids used to pick up the cat and make him bob his head like a dancer mesmerized by trance music. Then they’d leave the room and say, “I can’t believe you spend your Friday nights watching that show.”)
10. Wide World of Sports (Because I spent my childhood Saturdays listening to Jim McKay intone, “The agony of defeat.”)

How about everybody else?

  1. The Wire stands out, and The X-Files, and Doctor Who.

  2. Star Trek, of course. And ageing me somewhat, but I used to enjoy Hill Street Blues, Starsky and Hutch, Magnum, p.i. and The Rockford Files.

  3. Cheers, MASH, Man from UNCLE, All in the Family (especially Edith’s screeching like a plucked chicken), Monk

  4. Ah man, somebody beat me to the Rockford Files…my wife and I sing along to The Big Bang Theory 🙂

  5. And how could I forget Peter Gunn.

  6. Kate and Allie theme.
    Gilmore Girls theme. (Even if it did predate the show by a million years.)

  7. Definitely Hawaii Five-O. I loved playing that in the band!

    Go Chargers!!!

  8. The Prisoner was always a favorite along with Hawaii 5-0, Cheers and MASH. Which leads me to today’s segue, I will be seeing Loretta Swit tomorrow afternoon at a dinner theater.

  9. Justified has an awesome theme song by Gangstagrass and T.O.N.E-z – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yT2i2UylxJ0

  10. Peter Gunn is a great theme song.

  11. SWAT is pretty cool.
