    Default Favourite TV Theme Song

    There have been many classic television theme songs over the years, some of which are just as iconic as the shows themselves, but which ones are your favourite of all time?

    I adore the theme song of the British Sci-fi comedy, Red Dwarf. There's something about the mix of the cheery lyrics and the music that creates a sense of wonder and adventure within me. It makes me want to head off into space and discover the mysteries of the universe, just like the heroes of show.

    All I can think of right now is sitcom after sitcom. Still, I'll try~

    Boss Of Me by They Might Be Giants. When that song played as Malcolm In The Middle came on, my siblings and I really did run to the TV. I don't know why, but it felt so upbeat. :'3

    Of course, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air needs a mention. I still know that entire song and if you sing a single line around my friends, most of us will loudly join in even in public.

    You stole all my answers haha.

    Opening theme - Sopranos - Woke up this Morning by Alabama 3, sets the mood and tone for the series from the get go. A moody, dark mid paced song that perfectly fits the moody, dark series.

    Closing them - Fraiser - Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs by Kelsey Grammer. A light hearted jazz jingle that I think describes the show perfectly. The jazziness showing the elitism, snobbiness of the show and the nonsense lyrics show the the humour we find in each episode.

    That honour easily goes to the theme from Disney's Gummi Bears. If you're not familiar with the show, look it up. You won't be able to get that intro out of your head.

    Also, I give honorary mention to "Run with Us" from The Raccoons. A rather curious choice to accompany a children's cartoon about the ongoing conflict between peaceful raccoons and a mercenary aardvark, it had an excellent hi-NRG pulse and surprisingly dark, foreboding lyrics. I believe it also shows up at the end of the film Hobo With a Shotgun, even more bizarely.

    Ducktales, woo-hoo!

    Not really a song, but I really love the opening credits tune to Six Feet Under. Look it up, it's amazing.
    Men In Black The Series had an awesome theme, too. Again an instrumental one. Now that I think about it, none of my favorite themes have lyrics in them...

    Right now it's Today Is Gonna Be A Great Day by Bowling For Soup which is the theme song to Phineas And Ferb. Other than that song I love the themes to Roseanne, Home Improvement, The Little Mermaid series (which is a medley of Part Of Your World, Under The Sea & Kiss The Girl), Rugrats, Doug, Hey Arnold, Ren & Stimpy, Rocko's Modern Life, and so many more classic cartoon themes.

    I adore the theme song of the British Sci-fi comedy, Red Dwarf. There's something about the mix of the cheery lyrics and the music that creates a sense of wonder and adventure within me. It makes me to head off into space and discover the mysteries of the universe, just like the heroes of show.
    I would like this a million times if I could!

    For me, also Red Dwarf, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Mighty Boosh, and lots of Pokemon openings.

    From kids tv, Come Outside, Bear in the Big Blue House, Chucklevision, Albert the 5th Musketeer, Watch my Chops and Grange Hill. That's all I can remember off the top of my head.

    As far as the best opening in terms of soundtrack and visuals it definitely has to be Dexter. I watch it all the way through, every episode.

    Ironic really, given that the lyrics are about Lister's desire to escape his situation.

    Tank! from Cowboy Bebop. I have no words. It's just that good.

    I also always loved that latin choral intro from Mr. Bean (Ecce homo qui est faba, which literally means "Behold the man who is a bean"). The manic, self aware Freakazoid! intro was amazing too, and maddeningly catchy to boot.

    Invader's Zim's theme is the best ever. Ever. Followed by the original Pokémon theme.

    The opening themes of CSI, CSI: Miami, and CSI: New York. They're WAAAAAAAAAY too catchy sometimes. I also liked the opening themes of The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother.

    I'm loving the The Big Bang Theory's. I can't sing it, but I like to bop my head to it. It's just so upbeat. And science-y.

    Stargate SG-1, pretty much every Star Trek series (yes, even Enterprise), Home Improvement, M*A*S*H, Mork & Mindy, Animaniacs, Pokémon: Indigo League....yeah, I have a lot of favorites.

    But my top two are probably "D-tecnoLife" by UVERworld and "Rolling star" by YUI, both used as opening themes for Bleach.

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.
