The Most Iconic Theme Songs in the History of TV

When it comes to devising a hit TV show, producers have to take a lot of factors into account. They need a solid premise, strong and interesting characters, a large potential audience, and possibly even killer costumes. However, they should also never underestimate the power of a catchy theme song. It doesn’t even have to be a good song. It just needs to stick to the viewer’s mind like particularly powerful glue. If you get the song stuck in their head, they won’t be able to stop thinking about the show… And they’ll probably end up watching it. There’s a bit of watered-down TV psychology for you!

Over the years a number of successful shows have had killer tracks as their theme song. I mean, who’s ever going to forget the Friends theme or the opening credits of Game of Thrones? Almost everyone has most likely ended up humming the Flintstones song in the past, no matter how hard they try to forget that damn tune. Not all TV themes are created equal, but the following 17 certainly did their jobs well.
