Top Ten TV Theme Songs

In the car yesterday I was thinking about the best TV theme songs. The list got pretty darn long, so for manageability’s sake, I decided to limit it to prime time shows.

Here is the list I came up with:

  1. Batman
  1. I Dream Of Jeannie
  1. Miami Vice
  1. The Munsters
  1. The Addams Family
  1. Mission: Impossible
  1. The Twilight Zone
  1. Hawaii 5-0
  1. Peter Gunn
  1. Barney Miller

Of course there are many other worthy theme songs that didn’t make the list. Shows like The X-FilesThe SopranosThe Rockford FilesSanford & Son and others too numerous to name all had great, catchy, memorable theme songs for all sorts of reasons. Many other non-prime-time shows like The Pink Panther Show and The Fairly Oddparents had wonderful theme songs as well, but I needed to frame this list somehow to keep it manageable.

How about you? What would be on your list?
