Favourite TV Theme Tunes
Posted by: TOBYJUG on 26 May 2018
What are your favourite TV theme tunes ?
Movie soundtracks and scores often get a mention on this forum. I don't recall much mention of the humble TV Theme tune though.
Admittedly there is a fine line between annoying but clever ditties, nostalgic fondness, real musical merit and utter nonsense.
I have a few albums of this genre, but nothing gets as much played as those Ron Grainer complilations. Ron was pretty much responsible for every quality theme for uk series from the 60s to 80s. The late 70s complilations even included "disco" versions of well known themes.
