    The best theme ever from one of the best shows ever (!!) ...
    Perry Mason



    The theme, "Park Avenue Beat", was written by composer Fred Steiner, who described it as "a piece of symphonic R & B". Here's the full song played by an orchestra (well worth the listen!) ~

    And here is a fun version by the Blues Brothers

    Call me vulgar, but the Knight Rider theme does it for me.

    I grew up watching The Flintstones & I'm still a big fan
    The theme "Meet the Flintstones" (written by Hoyt Curtin, Joseph Barbera & William Hanna) was performed by a 22 piece big band with the Randy Van Horne Singers, & the melody was derived from part of the 2nd movement of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 17 ~ pretty classy for cavemen!

    The late '50s/early '60s had the coolest themes. Like the one from Mike Hammer.



    And of course, Peter Gunn.

    I've never heard that. It makes me want to go to law school so I can use it for my ringtone.

    The Avengers theme had a cool James Bond vibe.

    The original Doctor Who theme was amazing for its time.
