Recently I discovered that I have been enjoying quite a lot of theme songs. Like, enjoying to a point where I don’t even fast forward the opening credits because I want to hear the song. So I wanted to share them with you guys. Which, ironically, makes this week very music oriented with Thursday Movie Picks focusing on unforgettable film scores. Anyway, here are five TV-show theme songs I’ve recently enjoyed and loved!
HONORABLE MENTION: MAIN TITLE by Tyler Bates THE PUNISHER
I know this sort of makes it into a list of six but I could not add this one. Also I have to admit, I haven’t watched the second season yet… I felt like the first was so perfect and then they cancelled it that now I have anxiety about watching the FINAL season. I’m weird, I know…
5. MY LIFE IS GOING ON by Cecilia Krull / MONEY HEIST
Haven’t really talked about this show on my blog but I just finished season 2 and I love it! Will write about it soon enough but now let’s listen to its calming theme song.
4. NEMESIS by Benjamin Clementine / THE MORNING SHOW
The credits for The Morning Show were always fun to watch. And I never fast forwarded because the song worked so well and the animation was cool. You can listen to the original 2015 track HERE.
3. MAIN THEME by L’Orchestra Cinematique / STRANGER THINGS
This comforts me. I can’t believe I’m saying this about a horror show! but that’s the truth. Granted, Stranger Things is much more than a horror show but still the theme song has that note of scary to it for sure.
2. CHICAGO by Sufjan Stevens / THE POLITICIAN
Again, it’s a show I didn’t really talk about last year but I liked it a lot! It’s theme song, paired with that strange and mesmerising intro just go together so well. And the tone of the song is also very strange to me which works well with the show.
1. SUCCESSION MAIN TITLE by Nicholas Britell / SUCCESSION
This list wouldn’t have had happened if it weren’t for Succession. I binged most of the first season in like a day and now I’m obsessed with its theme song. Just like I’m obsessed with the show!
