Best TV intro songs


#1

GOT is obviously up there, but I’m also a real big fan of the Brooklyn 99 intro.

What are your favourites?

Only originals, not when they use an existing song for the intro (like Vikings).


#2

B99 is my alarm tone - perfect to wake up to and never really gets annoying.

My So-Called Life is a real ear worm for me, love when the super 80s drums enter


#3

GOT is too long


#4

A Man in a Suitcase. Also use for TFI Friday.

Also The Avengers and Dangerman.


#5

Really like this one as well even though it’s quite simple etc


#6

Bojack Horseman
Thomas the Tank Engine
Crazy Ex Girlfriend season 2


#7

Wire season 1


#8

Airwolf
The Muppet Show
Twin Peaks

Wanted to say The Leftovers but it turns out the piece that’s stuck in my head (The Departure by Max Richter) is just used a lot in the programme and isn’t used for the opening credits.


#9

The Sopranos

I often try and recreate Bojack’s by doing a weird “womp-womp” noise with my mouth, which confuses my wife (she doesn’t watch it)

@NotEvenDreams The Leftovers changed to something upbeat after season 1…which I didn’t care for. Amazing soundtrack though. Got some strong last.fm numbers from me.

For my own picks;
The Sweeney (of course)
Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace (had to)
Stranger Things

Yeah, my wife reminded me of that country when I was looking for Max.


#13

MASH theme tune will always hold nostalgia for me hearing it play downstairs whilst I was in bed cause I was too young to stay up.

(Apparently it aired 1972 to 1983 - lol I’m not that old it must’ve been repeats)


#14

…I don’t follow.


#15

The Leftovers opening credits track for season 2/3 - was chatting with her about how much I liked thr Max Richter piano track that they used as the theme for The Leftovers - she told me the piece I was thinking of wasn’t the theme used in the credits at all and that they used this for the opening credits after the first season:
