The fact that the TV theme song is being pushed out to make more room for commercials, I thought I would give you all the chance to list some of your favorites. Some of mine would include... The Rockford Files Taxi Barney Miller Thanks, EJ

THE SIMPSONS THE SOPRANOS MARRIED... WITH CHILDREN THE ODD COUPLE <-- I have no idea if it's really by Mancini, but it has that "Mancini-esque" quality that I enjoy

I also enjoy the themes from: Wings Futurama La Femme Nikita Silk Stalkings Alien Nation Hercules Xena Renegade Psych (too short!) Star Trek - TOS The X-Files Emergency! Rockford The A-Team Bonanza WKRP EDIT - Oops! Forgot one of the absolute best: M*A*S*H

There's no doubt in my mind that Hawaii Five-O is the best opening sequence ever created. To this day, when I'm re-watching an episode on Tivo, I never fail to watch the song in its entirety. I also have to second the nomination for Cheers. Maybe it was just the anticipation of knowing a great show was coming, but I'll always fondly remember hearing that song on Thursday nights. And my honorable mention goes to The Beverly Hillbillies.

Say what you want about the program, but Voyager had a great theme. Similarly, Battlestar Galactica TOS had an absolutely brilliant theme, nicely reprised in the new one as "The Colonial Anthem". I actually rather like the Law & Order theme. And it's interesting how they've managed to create interesting, yet different, riffs of it for SVU and CI. And how about that hoary old chestnut, LA Law? That trumpet riff followed by a heavy opening beat that coincides with the trunk of the car slamming shut, displaying the custom license plate?

Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

WKRP in Cincinatti with a special shout out to the rockin closing credits theme. (meow) I was born in 1970, so Taxi hit its stride during my pre-teen years. And as anyone from my era remembers, Taxi was on at 9:30 pm. Well, hearing that smooth flute intro was the sound of bedtime for me. There was something so mystically adult about that show but that theme song was and still is a haunting reminder of my bewilderment of the adult world. Funny how music can do that !

Another vote here for Barney Miller & Taxi. What about the ever popular "Suicide is Painless"

No, you're a genius 'cause you can't make a lamp.
What do you know about trigonometry?
I could care less about trigonometry.
Did you know without trigonometry there would be no engineering? Without lamps there'd be no light.
