TV theme songs I actually listen to

    Thought of this while watching Community: Thanks to the DVR, I am able to fast forward through the credits of a TV show (sorry producers, directors, writers, actors, etc.). However there are some shows in which I still let the credits roll due to the show's theme song:
    Community (dig the song)
    Parks and Rec (nice beat, but also quick credits and jumps right into the scene)
    True Blood (although growing tired of it)
    Justified (sometimes; I hate country, but that beat to start it off is pretty cool)
    The Simpsons (ok, only to watch the gag)

    That might be it. Everything else gets the FF treatment.

    And yes I'm writing this because for whatever reason it is 3 a.m. and I am not tired.

    I can't stand Community's. That's the worst part of the show.

    On the other hand, I think the rest of the NBC Thursday block from the past few years (Office, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock) has strong theme songs. It got canceled (and rightly so), but Perfect Couples, the show they tried to put into Thursday last year, had a great New Pornographers (maybe solo A.C. Newman) song. Modern Family's is good as well.

    I seem to recall Rockford Files being a pretty big hit back in the day. You'd hear it on the radio all the time.

    And this morning, as I pondered the nauseating fact that someone is remaking the Munsters (Really? Are they out of ideas again?) and thought of Grandpa, I realized the theme to Car 54 Where Are You? has some of the greatest lyrics ever for a TV theme:

    There's a holdup in the Bronx
    Brooklyn's broken out in fights
    There's a traffic jam in Harlem
    That's backed up to Jackson Heights
    There's a scout troop short a child
    Kruschev's due at Idlewild,
    Car 54 where aaaarrrreeee you?
