    Default A TV Theme Songs Thread...

    Yeah, I know what you must be thinking: Why?.

    Simply enough, some of these tunes are miniature classics, displaying a depth of composition and musicianship that far outclasses the medium they were written for. In fact, some of them went on to be Top-40 hits in their own right, mainly because they are catchy as hell. Plus, some of them are impossibly cool.

    Besides, I merely wanted to have 'em all in one place. If you have a personal favorite, feel free to throw it on the pile.

    To kick things off, what I consider to be the "All Time Champ" of tv themes, the Mike Post tune composed for a private detective.

    Mike Post - The Rockford Files (3:15)


    Barney Miller (1:04)


    Theme from SWAT Rhythm Heritage (4:11)
