    We've gone through this exercise a number of times and it's always entertaining to see what others think!

    In addition to The Kids in the Hall, I always post these favourites:



    So compelling that NBC bought it to use for their coverage of the Olympics!




    Well... the first 20 seconds, anyway. ;) :beer

    Instead of posting YouTube video links, I'll just list them and say why I like them.

    Love Is All Around (Mary Tyler Moore show). Written and sung by Sonny Curtis. I prefer the early version with the horn section.

    Hogan's Heroes. I like the drumming.

    The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I like the bass fiddle.

    When We're Singin' (Partridge Family). The first version of the Partridge Family theme song. I like the driving piano accompaniment and reverberated vocals.

    Movin' On. Written and sung by Merle Haggard. I like the guitar with the phase shifter.

    About the M*A*S*H Theme: The lyrics to the song Suicide is Painless used in the movie, were written by the son of the film's director, Robert Altman. Altman's instructions to his son were to write "the stupidest thing possible" (I may have paraphrased). Year later, Altman confessed that his son made a lot more money from penning those lyrics than he did directing the movie.

    Anyway, my faves are:
    Sanford and Sons
    Jeffersons
    Good Times
    Hawaii 5-0
    Rockford Files

    All from my childhood....haven't much TV since the 90s, probably. There are likely great themes nowadays. But I wouldn't know.
