Top 5 Theme Songs (with Lyrics)

Theme songs, you know you love them.  They are catchy, and they prepare you for the show you are about to watch.  Before I start with this list, there are three things I should note.  1.) The song has to have been written for the show.  You can’t just throw in some licensed music and hope for it to count.  2.) The song has to have lyrics (sorry stargate) and 3) This list is not definitive.  This is my opinion and it is bound to change.  (besides, I am probably forgetting a song)



Darkwing Duck

Like the show or not.  You have to admit it has a great theme song.  Everything from the chants of “Darkwing Duck” to the infamous “Let’s get Dangerous” this was a great theme song.  However, it was not quite great enough to make the list.

Spectacular Spider-Man

When this show premiered, I was so nervous.  Would this show live up to the 90’s creation that I had grown to love?  Luckily the show surpassed my wildest expectations, becoming my favorite superhero show.  And the moment I was hooked?  The first time I heard this song.


5. Danny Phantom

This queen inspired song sets up the story and makes a boring “origin” episode unnecessary.  It is catchy, it rocks, and we love it.  I love the way it has a few whispers (“He’s a phantom” “Danny Phantom”) that really bring out the ghost aspects of the show.

4. Psych

This catchy upbeat song captures the spirit of the show.  It is catchy, witty, and fun.  Best of all, they don’t mind mixing it up for special episodes doing things like having it sung by a choir or in Spanish.  The only problem?  To hear the full version you have to wait for the credits.

3. Monk

I seriously think Adrian Monk is the real man who wrote this song.  It is his entire philosophy rolled up into a song…a really catchy song.  In fact, I think just hearing this song makes you a little germaphobic.  There was a lot of controversy among fans when they replaced the original theme (without lyrics) for this one.  Admittedly, It took some getting used to, but this is a great theme.

2. Duck Tales

This is quite possibly the catchiest song in the whole world.  It has been almost two decades, and we are still singing it.  I think we will never be able to stop singing it.  In fact, it is the only part of the show I remember

1. The Highlander

BEST THEME SONG EVER.  You are greeted by a voice explaining the premise of the show.  You can only see silhouettes of the main character, until his name is spoken.  The suddenly queen melts your face off with the coolest song ever.  I don’t think it can ever be topped.

Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your username...
