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!

Other than that, the X-Files theme song makes the best ringtone ever.
