I do love that theme - I'd give them best soundtrack I think, for Songs in the Key of X

The William S. Burroughs version of Star Me Kitten is hilarious . . . a Sheryl Crow song that I actually like . . . Nick Cave . . . Elvis Costello

For me, it's a little personal cause growing up as a youngster, I wanted to be Magnum PI and would watch the show every week w/ my family.  My mom used to take me out and watch the show being taped and I would get to sit in the Ferrari every now and then.  Come to think of it, maybe my mom loved the show more than I did and I'm sure Tom Selleck had something to do with that!

I had to wait till I got home from work to get caught up on this thread. A few things:

A) Rickrolled? Really? What is this, 2011? :)

B) Can't believe no one posted this:

C) Or this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtYBuVxLbr0

No mention of Knight Rider?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mo8Qls0HnWo

Or the Dukes of Hazzard?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRX4mlFi06A

Or Miami Vice?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3Qsjpr1AbI
I think the "Dukes" take the cake, barely over Vice!
That being said; 5-0, A-team, and Magnum were memorable as well.

Also, don't forget the animated shows:
Simpson's
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPcb9gG8tvw

South Park
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osBytI18PLYScooby Doo

Scooby Doo
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_C2HJvtRDY

Or the Flinstone's
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s13X66BFd8

Simpson's and South Park are my faves.  Shows my age a little ;D
Title: Re: Best TV theme song
Post by: punatic on May 01, 2013, 06:04:09 AM
Well...  If you're going with shows off the air then Magnum gets my vote.  Can't imagine why... 8)

But for hands-down cool you gotta love:

Justified (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yT2i2UylxJ0)

Bluegrass rap.

The TV show ROCKS!  Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens is one bad mother f-(hush your mouth!)

+1 on the song.  I don't about new episodes of the show though.  It was a great story but have you watched Castle lately?  Mal would need to either lose 30 lbs. or explain how he got chubby in space.   8)
