I have a pretty poor taste in television. Would much rather watch old episodes of Bergerac or Morse than the latest GOT of Waking the Dead. Despite living in the proclaimed 'Golden Age of Television' I think one area that has not improved is the wonderful world of television themes songs.
After Ian's outstanding thread on Prince Among Men last year and the impending return of Twin Peaks, I think it's time to offer a tribute to great TV themes.
Essentially, my scientific theory based on my three nominations is that MORE RACISTS/RACISM = BETTER THEMES
If anyone can find me better theme songs than the following three from any time after 2010, I would be genuinely interested.
In Sickness and in Health in particular is a fucking superb Chas and Dave number.
EDIT: Shit, I almost forgot to post the song that inspired me to set this thread up. Honestly, I quite get often get back from the pub and listen to this followed up by The Soviet National Anthem. I also quite often listen to political speeches because I'm a saddo. Watch me blub to the Gettysburg Address or Ronald Reagan speaking to the nation after the Challenger disaster some time.
That's a truly superb piece of music and the sound track for Peaks in general is outstanding.
What are your favourites and why?????
