    Definitely The Greatest American Hero! One of my favorite songs of all time.

    Remember William Shatner's Tekwar series of movies - theme song from Warren Zevon called Real or Not - also one of my favorite songs of all time (it's available on "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead - an Anthology").

    Theme song from Bosom Buddies, Magnum PI, love the theme song from Enterprise (I know that's an unpopular opinion), Babylon 5 - all 5 seasons, Drew Carey (Cleveland Rocks).

    Lots of new members these days, and lots of oldie but goodie threads in Potpourri, so because I can, I'm recycling this one for the heck of it. :D

    I'll now admit that 3 years and 20 days later, the theme song from ST: Enterprise is no longer on my list... :lol:

    My list remains the same! There are no new theme songs out there that catch me like these do. BTW for those that don't know, the them to Crime Story was Del Shanon's "Little Runaway".

    See ya

    Well, of course I have to say Laverne & Shirley! :D

    So many:
    All In The Family
    Welcome Back, Kotter
    The Muppet Show (I'm sure N8 will agree! :lol: )

    DH would vote for Married... With Children

    I'll leave some for the rest of you.

    To include instrumentals, I'd have to add M*A*S*H (which actually does have words, but only played once), Barney Miller and Sanford & Son. :listening

    As a kid (growing up in TX), I used to wonder :confused: who drank oil, and why, since it was obviously valuable, having gold in it! :sure:

    Who the heck brough up this old threa...oh wait. Never mind.

    They aren't really theme songs...more theme instrumentals:
    24...the "thumping" sound of the seconds ticking by
    Little House on the Prarie...I can still remember seeing Laura running down the hill at the end of the show
    Mission Impossible
    Doogie Houser, MD

    So do you know what the words "schmeil. schmeizel" (I don't even know how to spell them) mean? They are real words.

    I'd have to go with lazaruspup as best instrumental (and one of the top of my list in general) the original Dr. Who theme (Tom Baker era) followed by the modern Dr. Who theme, followed by Hawaii Five-O.
    After that.... many that have already been mentioned: All in the Family, Welcome Back Kotter, Secret Agent Man (at least I think that was the name of the series),...
