"Save Me" from Smallville by Remy Zero
Charmed that old song is it by The Smiths
"California" from The O.C. by Phantom Planet
"I Don't Wanna Be" from One Tree Hill by Gavin DeGraw

(guilty pleasures from my childhood & teen years..
I actually BOUGHT on 45 singles these doozies:)

"Welcome Back" from Welcome Back Kotter by John Sebastion
"Theme from Swat" from Swat (I have no idea who it was by)

Theme music from "Lost in Space" (I think it was the second series) as it was composed by John Williams - the same guy who did the music for Star Wars
"Love is all Around" from the Mary Tyler Moore show - yes, cheesy, but I like it
"Happy Days" theme music
The theme music for "Battlestar Galactica" (original)
"Suicide is Painless" the theme for MASH

I think the Charmed theme is How Soon Is Now by Love Spit Love, a cover version of The Smiths.

When I was a kid I had the 45 to Greatest American Hero. It was a one hit wonder; I cant recall who did it. (I sense a google search in my future). I also love the theme to Secret Agent starring the great Patrick MacGoohan.(sp?)

This will probably mean nothing if you're still the right side of 40!

There are a couple of theme tunes from kids TV programmes way back in the early '70's, when we used to get served up badly dubbed black and white european shows. The ones that always make me feel nostalgic are the theme from Robinson Crusoe, lots of violins as the credits rolled over waves washing up the beach, and the theme from White Horses, I can't remember if that was the name of the programme, but they sang about them in the theme tune, and it starred a young boy with a nice line in thick wooly jumpers.

Anybody else remember these ?

The Benny Hill Show
Miami Vice (prob. an all time fave)
Knight Rider
Bonanza
Dallas
Dynasty
Hill Street Blues
Little House on the Prairie
The Love Boat
Taxi
and many others...

I can't think of anything more annoying than some whiney popsong as a theme for a show.

As well as the aforementioned "Doctor Who", a couple of other Ron Grainer classics stick in the memory:

Main In a Suitcase / TFI Friday (same tune)
Steptoe & Son
The Prisoner

That man was clearly a musical genius...

Secret Agent? Pah!

You mean Danger Man! Proper British titles only please! ;-)

(although for all I know the US prints could actually have had a different theme tune as well as a different title, in which case I cheerfully make myself look like an idiot while attempting to show off my useless knowledge!)
