Although it's not always the case, I tend to find that the better the theme tune the likelier we are to enjoy the show - because half the fun of watching TV is belting along to a good old intro, right?
The below 10 shows all have mega catchy credit tracks - so much so, they'll crawl into your little ear holes and stay there forever.
So, in no particular order, here are some of the best (although yes, sometimes annoying) TV theme songs:
You've heard it twenty million times but does that stop you breaking into The Rembrandts’ “I’ll Be There for You” every single time those peachy pals appear on screen? No, didn't think so.
2. The Simpsons
The first of many on this list that prove a theme doesn't need to have lyrics to be catchy AF.
3. The Addams Family
The Addams Family started when Uncle Fester farted, he farted through the keyhole and paralyzed the cat! The cat got dead excited and shouted Man United and Man United shouted The Addams Family!
Any theme tune that lends itself perfectly to childish adaptations gets a thumbs up in my book.
Could the lyrics to Cheers be any more welcoming? At this bar everyone knows your name and are always super excited to see you! The fact that is rarely reflected in the show is irrelevant.
5. Gilmore Girls
Yes, you beautiful humans, I will follow you, even though you rarely go anywhere.
6. South Park
You'll certainly have yourself a more interesting time if you know what Kenny's mumbling about the next time you head on down to South Park.
7. The X-Files
This fabulous piece of music lends itself perfectly to a wide-eyed stare, whistle and wiggle.
8. Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Where was he raised? All together now...
9. Full House
Everywhere you look, there's a <3 - especially now Fuller House has just hit Netflix!
10. Game of Thrones
Dun dun da da dun dun da da dun dun da da dun dun dun... SO. GOOD.
