With the rise of streaming services, people increasingly find themselves confronted by their favorite shows after a dull or unpleasant day. Following their usual routine, maybe making some popcorn or tea, they turn on their TV or computer only to hear that appealing tune of the introduction, and in that moment, they can finally relax.

Theme songs are not simply random bits of songs, they must complement the show in some way, to distinguish from the competition, set the mood, and most importantly, stick in the audience’s memory. The ranking of TV theme songs will consequently have dramatic changes from person to person. Some may prefer catchy lyrics while others simply the beat; however, the most important underlying element is that the audience enjoys it and would recognize it long after the show ended.
