Thanks to Thursday Movie Picks, I’ve stumbled across some new blogs! One of them is Mettel Ray. She recently did a post highlighting five of her favorite TV themes and I thought that was a great idea for a post! While reading her list I had a ton of favorites fill my head and here are a few of them.
I love everything about the opening sequence for this show. I love how coy it is given what the show is about. It’s one of the few openings that I never skip. At one point I even had it set as my ringtone. I feel like an opening tune for a show about a serial killer could have easily been dark and gritty, but this one is actually light and almost airy?
I feel like opening credit songs are a dying breed these days. The best part about the “Psych” theme is how they’ll change it up from time to time based on the episode. They’ve done a Bollywood version and Boys II Men has even performed it once. There’s also a short version and a longer version as well.
I love the techno vibe of this opening. I feel like it fits in really well with the show. I think later on in the series they changed it up a little bit but it’s still a banger of a show theme. Plus it’s by The Crystal Method!
Is there a more classic, modern day TV theme than this one? I feel like even if you didn’t watch this show, you still recognized this music. My science teacher back in Middle School introduced me to “The X-Files” way back in the day and it’s still a show I love. Even if they tried really hard to fuck it all up.
So, how many of these themes have worked their way into your brains after reading this? What TV themes would be on your list? Let me know!
