    This one might get me in trouble here, but here goes: 'Live to Tell' by Madonna, from the movie 'At Close Range' which starred Christopher Walken and Sean Penn.

    I'm not a big fan of the Simpsons but I do like the theme music.  Definite second for the Flintstones, and will add the Jetsons for the cartoon trifecta.

    From sci-fi TV: original Star Trek theme as well as ST Next Generation, both versions of the Lost in Space theme, and of more revent vintage, Stargate SG-1.

    Mission:Impossible and Hawaii Five-O are surely all-time greats, and definite soft spot for Get Smart.  I often walk from the Sheraton Back Bay down into the Pru garage and sing the Get Smart theme as I go through the sequential automatic doors.

    Hawaii 5-0 had to be the biggest no-brainer, and I'm glad someone already mentioned Barney Miller and Rockford Files.

    I'll add:

    S*W*A*T 
    Welcome Back Kotter
    Friends (Not a fan of the shot but it was a catchy tune)
    Beverly Hillbillies
    Bonanza
    The Fall Guy (as sung by Lee Majors himself).

    The Sopranos had a great theme song.  It was called 'Woke Up This Morning' by Alabama 3 or A3.

    Great stuff!!!

    roy, Beverly Hillbillies and Bonanza----as they say here in New England were "wicked good" songs.

    Peter Gunn theme is also great , love the ELP version.

    Sorry jess, can't get excited about the Monkees. Some of the comedy was good, a few of the songs were catchy...but the theme song didn't grab me. Good one though, just not my taste.

    mojo, it's funny but I used to watch Barney Miller all the time and can't remember the theme song.

    I'll add another that hasn't been mentioned , just because I am afraid it will be overlooked. "Twilight Zone"..."there 's a sign post up ahead"...Great spoken words by Rod Serling to the suspenseful background music.

    Love Boat -- had to include this one because my mom liked Jack Jones.

    Scooby Doo (The original song from the first year. As I recall, they tweaked the opening over the years.)

    Airwolf

    Mork and Mindy (song was in my head and took me awhile to remember what TV show it was from).

    One of my favorite shows when I was a kid was 'The Wild Wild West' with Robert Conrad and Ross Martin and the theme music was excellent.

    The James Bond theme music is pretty cool...as for songs from the movies, Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey was a good one, as was Nobody Does it Better by Carly Simon.

    The theme from Friends probably wasn't as annoying 20 years ago as it is now, but I never really appreciated it until old friend Rob Paravonian pointed out just exactly how funny this song is.

    I've posted this before, so . . .   you know . . .   stop me if you've heard it.
