Mary Tyler Moore's theme is one of my faves, but didn't make the top 13
On Wednesday, my radio co-host Darren Marlar declared it "TV Show Theme Song Day." By the way, if you go to the Retro Crush site, they provide links so you can listen to the songs if you like. Just a note: These aren't MY Top 13. I personally think some of them don't belong there, and there are many great ones that SHOULD be there. My own personal faves may be a topic for another TT.
Here, according to Retro Crush, are the top 13 TV theme songs of all time:
13. Hawaii Five-0--Oh, yeah! Love that signature drum riff.
12. Doctor Who--Doctor whuut?? I don't think I've ever heard this one, or seen the show.
11. ABC's Wide World of Sports--Boy, does that ever bring back memories!
10. All in the Family--Who could forget Edith Bunker screeching, "And you knew who you were then!"
9. Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids
8. Spongebob Squarepants
7. Twin Peaks
6. Star Trek
5. Mission Impossible--Well, definitely.
4. The Jeffersons--yep...we're "movin' on up"!
2. Tie: The Brady Bunch/Gilligan's Island
1. Sanford and Son--Really? Ahead of M*A*S*H, The Odd Couple, The Mary Tyler Moore Show? Ooh-kay.
