      Favourite TV Theme Music
      Oct 19, 2013 07:35:58 pm
      We have the thread to discuss the TV shows but for me what makes some shows even more special is the Theme music. Some of the greatest TV programmes are made even better by that opening credit music or some shows that aren't that great have a great Theme tune.


      So what are your favourites.


      Two of mine to start from two of the best TV shows ever made.


      The West Wing


      It has to be the original version though from the first couple of Seasons.

      The Sopranos

      I was going to put The X Files in Rodders but had a feeling you'd like that one. Really sets the tone for the show that one.

      As already stated, The Sopranos one is amazing! It's definitely my favourite. I also like how The Wire is unique, in that each series they have someone else doing the soundtrack. For example:

      Suppose I'll date myself here, but my all time favorite show has to be one of them. My dad used to own a video game arcade in the 80's and there was a jukebox in there. This song was on it and got a lot of airtime.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBIgXhiOpeQ

      Also, this would be a close runner up for me....in fact this series  had some of the best music of any series I've ever seen. Sadly, after it went off the air, something happened to the rights to the music so even if you buy the DVD of the show, it's  got different music.

      Straight back to being a small child, don't remember anything about the programs, but the tune is very nostalgic, but then there is..

      Piqued my interest and apparently it was just the US versions of the DVD that didn't have the original soundtrack.
