TV themes that get your blood pumping

Recommended Posts

For me, no matter how many times I hear it, the classic Knight Rider theme always gets me excited in a "Fuck yeah!" kind of way.

GI Joe, The Shield, Batman Beyond and any incarnation of the Doctor Who theme also get my blood pumping.

How about you?

Definitely the A-Team. I listen to the G.I. Joe theme now and think it's not as cool as it was as a kid. The Shield is awesome for the way it just hits you out of nowhere.

My favorite is The Fall Guy though. I so fucking love that song even though Lee Majors can't sing. It makes me want to become a stuntman.

One always comes to mind:

The New Batman/Superman Adventures theme. It's the single greatest theme the DCAU ever graced us with, but sadly, the shortest-lived. :shakehead: It also had the greatest montage of animation and show clips going on behind it.

They may have been goofy, they may have gotten dated, they may be pure cheese incarnate. But 70s and 80s action shows had some of the best theme songs of all time.

Magnum, P.I.

Miami Vice

Airwolf

Knight Rider

The Six Million Dollar Man

SWAT

CHiPs

Also:

3-2-1 Contact (Seriously.)

World's Greatest Superfriends (that one particular iteration)

Spider-Man (60s. 90s? HELL no.)

G.I. Joe

Star Blazers (Best. Theme song. EVER.)

He-Man

Batman Beyond

Firefly

Doctor Who

Mr. Belvedere (No, I'm not kidding, and I will fight anyone who disagrees.)

Thank you for saying Magnum PI. I totally forgot to mention that.

That is one of the best TV themes ever. One of my old metal bands covered that one.

The silky smooth baritone of Mr. Leon Redbone does strange things to me.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Angel

Doctor Who

Torchwood

CSI (the original Las Vegas one. I'm a softie for Gil and his overly bad puns before the "Whooooooo are you?" starts)

Batman Beyond

Darkwing Duck (you laugh, but that show was badass)

and I really love Cold Case's theme, the theme song gives me chills.

Cowboy Bebop, for sure.

Oh, hell yes!

Also, the "Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni" ("When They Cry") opening theme.
