Top Ten TV Theme Songs

Given the themes of most of my previous entertainment posts, it shouldn’t surprise you that all of the slows on this list are from last century. At least a couple of them have been remade more recently. In those cases, I’m using the song or arrangement of it from the original series.

I live outside of Philadelphia and have been food-obsessed for as long as I can remember. After toying with the idea of starting a blog for a fairly long time, the extinction of a food-themed message board that I frequented for years prompted me to finally take action.

  1. I like that your instrumental selections mostly have some serious musical chops (The Ventures are awesome), but I’d have to include “The Rockford Files” and “Simon & Simon” in my list.


    1. Thanks. The Rockford Files came very close to making it. I had a couple more than I needed and they were one of the ones I dropped. It could have just as easily been one of the others between 6-10.
