Trying to think of other TV shows with theme songs, "Moonlighting"
Moonlighting is a good theme song.

1. The Golden Girls
2. Frasier
3. All in the Family
4. The Wonder Years
5. Cheers

Not an easy thing to do here... Had to look up some theme songs just to make sure they had lyrics to them...

iirc from an interview, Chris Boucher wasn't particularly impressed with the song feeling that it didn't fit the show.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

I always thought Baywatch had one theme song but it seems like they've had several. Of course there was the main one ("I'll be Ready") but the two from the first season (Strong Enough and Save Me) were great too.

Good job I'm not compiling his list then!

Baywatch had a ton of openings but what's "Strong Enough"?

The first season used only one theme song, "Save Me" by Peter Cetera, for all episodes, seasons 2-9 used "I'll be Ready", season 10 (the first after the show moved to Hawaii) used an instrumental remix of I'll be ready and season 11 had a completely new theme song, I think it's called "Let me be the One"

I like the season 11 opening, of course for the reunion movie the show went back to I'll be ready. Meh, I guess it is the best known opening so it makes sense, I still think one of the hawaiian themes would have been better because the movie was still set in Hawaii.

Strong Enough was the DVD alternate Theme Song for Season 1. According to Wikipedia,

On the DVD edition of the first season, the original main title theme is replaced by the song "Strong Enough," performed by Evan Olson (from his album Audio).

I was reading up on the whole DVD thing and wonder why for such a hit show (And like it or not, Baywatch was a hit show) that lasted as long as it did and rose David Hasselhoff to stardom, did the DVD release become so god awful. Was it all about copyright issues or was there something else.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

Using the rules given, these are my five favorites, defined as songs I will actually listen to on my iPod, etc., as opposed to just enjoying as intros when I watch shows:

1. Batman theme (a classic, covered by everyone from Duane Eddy to the Who to Iggy Pop to the Jam);
2. the Banana Splits theme (I put this on near the end of a frat party back in college in the 80s-every person in the place went nuts);
3. Spider-man theme (especially the Ramones cover);
4. Dukes of Hazzard (I was a fan of Waylon even before the show aired);
5. the Monkees theme/Rawhide (tie)

The closing theme, "WKRP In Cincinnati End Credits", was a hard rock number composed and performed by Jim Ellis...
Speaking of WKRP, like a lot of people I assumed for years that the singer of the opening credits was actually Richard Sanders, the guy who played Les Nessman. However, it isn't.

Re: Top 5 TV theme songs, read the rules before posting.

If the list had gone to ten, and considering my top five was actually a top six, I'd have thrown in (in no particular order):
WKRP
Greatest American Hero
Mary Tyler Moore
Ally McBeal
