TV meme, day 18


Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

I had to think really long and hard before I came up with Six Feet Under and Dead Like Me. I guess I don't pay that much attention to title sequences.

Good theme music, on the other hand, I find very important. Sometimes the music is the best part of the series, and therefore I'd like to change this to: Favourite theme music.

4. "Living It Up" by Bert Kaempfert (theme from Kapitein Zeppos). Kapitein Zeppos was not my favourite Belgian series at the time (that would be Axel Nort), but the theme was ace.

3. Theme from The League of Gentlemen, series 1 and 2 (the soundfile is the second one from the top [ETA: the one entitled "Theme tune from Series 2" — it keeps changing places]; I especially love the second half of it). I was heartbroken when they ruined it made a different arrangement for series 3.

2. Twin Peaks theme by Angelo Badalamenti: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oDuGN6K3VQ (sorry, I can't seem to embed YouTube videos any more, due to my browser being too old). Badalamenti's music added so much to the spookiness of Twin Peaks.

1. Theme from The Persuaders by John Barry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAxvfmGUjuQ. The Persuaders was about two playboys who fought crime, I think, although I seem to recall they were pretty shady themselves. Or maybe that was just the playboy bit. Anyway, I quite liked the series, but I adored the music. Still do.
