The best TV shows usually have a memorable, catchy and iconic theme song to match, and over the years we’ve heard some amazing theme songs that trigger all kinds of responses to our favourite TV shows.
In celebration of True Detective Season 2 on Blu-ray and DVD (featuring Leonard Cohen’s beautiful, dark and sullen track ‘Nevermind’, which perfectly captures and sets the mood of True Detective Season 2), we’re taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting some of the most iconic TV theme tunes of all time…
TRUE DETECTIVE SEASON 2
Like the last season, music supervisor T Bone set the show’s all-important tone with a dark and mystical opening track ‘Nevermind’. It perfectly captures the mood of season 2, echoing the show’s flirtations with nihilism and theories about the meaningless of existence.
GAME OF THRONES
The Game of Thrones opening credit and theme song totally evokes the fantasy world of Westeros.
Because everyone knows the words and because it puts everyone in a good mood!
FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR
One of the coolest theme tunes only sung by one of the coolest Hollywood actors – Will Smith!
SEX & THE CITY
This classic, hip & clever and l theme song is perfectly matched for Sex & The City!
Arguably the most instantly recognisable TV theme tune, its The Simpson’s.
TRUE DETECTIVE SEASON 2 IS OUT ON BLU-RAY & DVD 11TH JANUARY 2016, COURTESY OF HBO ENTERTAINMENT.
