Sunday Procrastination: The Best TV Theme Songs From Your Youth [Videos]

Has anyone else noticed that most TV shows we watch now don’t have theme songs like they did in “the old days?” I completely forgot that TV show theme songs even ever existed. I remember singing along with my sisters as we waited patiently for our favorite shows to start. As soon as we heard the first notes of the telltale opening song, something magical happened.

Listening to these theme songs again, I’m reminded of the age I was at when I watched all of these shows. Rugrats? Eight. The OC? Fifteen (I watched them all on DVD way after the show was over.) Here are a few theme songs that will forever remind us of our favorite shows from the past…

What are your favorite TV show theme songs? Tell us in the comments!

    2. Kelly says:

      Umm, where is Boy Meets World? THAT was the best show.

    3. Garnet – Columbia University says:

      And the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air! Still know every word. 90s/early 2000s shows were the best.

    4. Alenochka says:

      I would add themes from Charles in Charge, My secret Identity, Out of this World, Quantum Leap.
      "Gilmore girls" is favourite from your list.
