Top 50 Best American Television Show Theme Songs

Amanda Burton at Daily of the Day made a list of the Top 50 Best American Television Show Theme Songs, which does not include the Star Trek theme, because she limited the list to songs that have lyrics (yeah, the Star Trek theme had lyrics, but they weren’t used on TV). Whether you agree or disagree with the rankings, you’ll love the fact that almost all of the songs have either a video or a link to a video. You can relive your favorites and check out the ones you aren’t familiar with. Not too many people will disagree with #1.

That list exists for the sole purpose of starting fights... WKRP at only #47?!? No Adventures of Pete & Pete? NO MY MOTHER THE CAR? (the theme song WAS the best thing about that show - come on, to include Small Wonder and not that?) And including previously-popular songs that got re-purposed as TV themes doesn't seem quite right (Frank Sinatra is still spinning in his grave over Married With Children). If the author ever gets around to doing a separate list of Top Lyric-less Theme Music, I don't think I'll want to know about it... unless Star Trek TNG, Get Smart and M*A*S*H are in the Top Five.
