The Top 40 TV Theme Songs

With YouTube links. They all bring back memories for me since I actually saw the original shows.

My favorite is Hawaii Five-0 which was played by every marching band in America back when I was in high school.

I have fond memories of all the old ones I grew up with, but I find myself more drawn to the newer ones like the one from The Sopranos.

And this one that did not make the list from The Wire.

And this one from another HBO show, Deadwood.

Notice how all three are from HBO. I rarely watch network television anymore and frankly I couldn’t name more than one or two non-reality shows on any of the big four networks. But then again, I am not sure they are producing anything past Dancing with the Stars and American Idol so I guess I am not missing anything.

Here’s two more that I like.


Plus a guilty pleasure that I developed while stationed in Germany where we only had one channel – the Armed Forces Network – and a limited number of shows to watch. Under those conditions I found myself quickly addicted to this show and the two soap operas – General Hospital and Guiding Light – that were shown daily.

So what are your favorite TV theme songs?

Hat-tip to Dirty Harry.
