    STAR TREK! "Space...the final frontier..."

    No Dukes of Hazzard? No The A-Team? These are the two best theme songs in the history of television.

    LAW & ORDER needs some love too!!

    But Hill Street and M*A*S*H would be way up on my list too!!

    Since I'm a hardcore "Dynasty" fan, I suggest this show's very grandiose (these trumpets!!) and catchy theme song by über-composer Bill Conti. I own the even better extended version of it on CD and still listen to it on my car stereo nowadays. Guilty pleasure!!! :-)

    The Golden Girls! Thank you for being a friend. Travel down the road and back again. Your heart is true. You're a pal and a confidant. And if you threw a partyyyy...invited everyone you knew......you would see the biggest gift would be from me and the card attached would say...Thank you for being a friend

    While I'd agree that Dallas and Hawaii 5-0 are the top, here's a couple that I think deserve more credit
    -The Golden Girls
    -Perfect Strangers
    -Full House
    -The West Wing

    Knight Rider!

    How about "Bonanza?" It has the semblance of hoof beats thundering over the plains ~ a flavor of action and power.

    S.W.A.T. By Rythym Heritage Na-na, na-na, na-na, na-na, na-na, nanat-nanat. It's easier to hum but it really gets my blood pumping!

    Where is the theme from "e.r."? The long-running drama series had a pulsating opening credits sequence that introduced a very large cast, very quickly. Big props to James Newton Howard for a memorable theme!

    Agree with Rhoda. Mary Tyler Moore Show theme without a doubt. Altho I would give an honorable mention to Bonanza, Cheers and Friends.

    How could you forget Mary!

    Who can turn the world on with her smile?
    Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
    Well it's you girl, and you should know it
    With each glance and every little movement you show it

    Love is all around, no need to waste it
    You can have a town, why don't you take it
    You're gonna make it after all
    You're gonna make it after all

    How will you make it on your own?
    This world is awfully big, girl this time you're all alone
    But it's time you started living
    It's time you let someone else do some giving

    Love is all around, no need to waste it
    You can have a town, why don't you take it
    You're gonna make it after all
    You're gonna make it after all

    Thank you for being a friend
    Traveled down the road and back again
    Your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant. (misspelled you're in my previous comment)

    And if you threw a party
    Invited everyone you ever knew
    You would see the biggest gift would be from me
    And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend.

    Airwolf is my favorite theme song! Dallas is in the top 10 (and it's been going through my head all day!)
