Top 10 TV Theme Songs 1980-2011 (Video)
With the Fall TV season underway, Billboard dug through the past 30 years of Hot 100 charts to find the top 10 TV theme songs. Check out the vids below- brings back the memories, huh?
What I find surprising is that the most recent song is from 1995. No chart topping theme songs in the past 15 ears? Well, maybe they just don't make 'em like they used to. What do you think, anything missing from the list?
