TV Theme tunes

Hey Gang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Well you know me.. every now and then i bring up a quirky topic that helps me to reminisce about old times..

A few days ago I saw a film with Temuera Morrison in it... and it reminded me of his days in Shortland Street - a hospital based soap that used to appear on ITV in the 90s and subsequently vanished years later. It was a great show and every episode ended on a cliffhanger. Naturally thinking of Shorty, i remembered the theme tune which was quite lively as soaps go (plenty of samples on youtube). The song was performed by Tina Cross... naturally i've spent several hours on youtube watching the old 90s version... the current SS has gone all modern - all the original cast have gone and the hospital has been revamped.. with a modified theme (just like all the shows these days).

 

Anyway.. it just got me wondering what TV theme tunes you guys like or liked? Do you use any as ringtones or play them blaringly loud on the car stereo?

Re: TV Theme tunes

I have the theme tune to Futurama as my ring tone Smiley6600

I must have been really bad in a previous life. This is my 3rd ISP in a row that uses lithium.

All of which pale in comparison to the power and influence of Ed Welch's "Quiz Wizard" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKhnVvHWJ3A

 

Cool
