Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

I just love the classical Gothic opening music of Angel. It almost makes me want to cry.

The opening music of Doctor Who is also a classic. With that eerie electronic sound it instantly transmits the idea that "there are strange things going on out there....", and as a matter of fact if it had lyrics that phrase should be one of the lyrics.

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Firefly "The Ballad of Serenity"

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

long standing top pick would be - believe it or not - from The Greatest American Hero

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Oh yeah, I forgot how great that theme was. They cancelled this sweet show before it had a real chance to get going. We never missed an episode of The Greatest American Hero. William Katt was terrific. He's Barbara Hale's son (Hale was Perry Mason's secretary Della Street).

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

My favorites:

Maverick
12 O'Clock High
Mission: Impossible
Peter Gunn
Alias Smith & Jones
Hawaii 5-0

And NO the world was not awesome during the Vietnam War. But the 50s weren't bad.

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever


Yup, Peter Gunn and Mission Impossible, AND The Avengers.


What's up, Cock?.....FTW

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Hi,
Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was busy being sick all of January.

I guess you liked the theme songs I picked and added a couple of really good ones--Peter Gunn (I have a 45 rpm record of that one) and Mission Impossible. I remember Mission Impossible theme playing on the radio in the fall of 1967, a big hit. All the themes we've both mentioned still hold up as great to this day. I actually can't truly remember The Avengers' theme even though I always watched that show. One of the stars, Patrick McNee, was living about 50 miles south of where I live but don't know if he's still with us. I'm sure I'd remember Avengers' theme if I heard it, but I haven't seen an episode since the 70s.

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

We are having bouts of various illnesses here in the UK as well - hope you are feeling much better now....

Here is the full version of The Avengers theme with, in my opinion, the best pairing of McNee and Diana Rigg, and yes Mr McNee is still with us aged 91!!

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Could be nostalgia... but my favorite to this day would be the theme from:

"The Persuaders" (1971 - John Barry)

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Barney Miller. I don't think I ever heard it played on the radio, but it was certainly good enough to be a stand-alone jazz piece.

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever


"The Persuaders" (1971 - John Barry)


I was gonna say that. Well, the only one that doesn't seem to have been mentioned that needs to be is "The Wild, Wild West" theme by Richard Markowitz.

Re: Favorite TV theme song Ever ever

Get Smart
