    Not a famous show, but I always enjoyed the opening theme:

    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    Very cool Dick Dale-like surf guitar coupled with a horn section -



    and what may be the only television theme song that prominently featured a harpsichord paired with hipster finger-snaps -

    Strange but true fact - I wrote the lyrics to this theme song and have been living off the royalties for over 50 years now. Full disclosure - I didn't write the "na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na" part - that was someone else.
