What would be some tv show theme tunes that you found entertaining?

Asked by ucme (50034points) July 28th, 2010

Yeah, anything from the recent past or present that you remember. Once that sucker is in your head there’s no getting rid of it type tunes. I’m almost certain i’ve probably asked this before but what the hell, worth revisiting in my book.

Yeah one glance at the “siblings” confirms that yes indeed I have asked something similar. Oh well nothing wrong with a little deja vu I s’pose.

The Peter Gunn Theme by Henry Mancini. It’s been used everywhere. Even if you don’t know or remember the show, you’ve probably heard the theme.

Tour of Duty (the original song was Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones)
Friends
McGuyver (or however you spell it)
Mission Impossible

I’m with Lloydbird on this one, I still find The Persuaders theme extremely haunting.
