In the first place, it is important that you know that the 30 rock theme track was created by Jeff Richmond, alias Tina Fey's spouse; take a minute to be surprised by this enchanting work.

Damon Lindelof, the originator of the show, praised the tune for "basically telling everything I want to hear about my work. "And for good reasons, the popular texts by DesMent describe the whole point of the show.
Fan's can also understand the name of the track as clever piece of good sense, as the show's main secret remains largely unresolved. In spite of the peppy keyboards and the lazy indian singing, The 88's "At Least It Was Here" is a rather gloomy track selection for a show that is as vertiginously humorous as Community (the text includes the words "We could be roped up, a tied up, dead in a year/I can't countd the reasons I should stay/One by one, they all just faad away).
Besides, the melody adds a hot twitch of pure Indian joke to each of the episodes, which invariably brings to mind what's at the centre of this comic show: a whole Lotus hearts is behind the madness.

Hugo Montenegro, "I Dream of Jeannie" As Jeannie the compelling Barbara Eden bewitched the audience with a straight forward wink of the eye and a crucifix of the arm.
Without any effort she impersonated the kitschy, colourful jokes of the 60' s - as well as the hip-shaking sample of Hugo Montenegro's show, which still sound refreshing years later. Topic song: A Beautiful Mine " As slippery and supple as Mad Men himself, RJD2's lofty "A Beautiful Mine" may sound a little like Portishead stepping into a timesheet and getting an Alfred Hitchcock-image.
This combination of the declining theme of the track and the descendancy of the silhouette-shaped character from a Madison Avenue tower is simply iconical. Topic song: How compelling is The Office Theme, you ask? No wonder everyone plays it; it has a plain theme, a funny structure and a whole bunch of hearts.
Topic song: Known as The Ventures, the adventure theme was reworked by The Ventures and captured by legendary Don Ho and Sammy Davis Jr., but above all, the track gained an iconic reputation in School of Rock, inspiring an equal (if not more) Youtube icon style clip of a Chinaless High Scholar filling the theme on about a million barrels and then self-assuredly throwing his batons into the sky (do yourself a favour and look up).
Well, if anything, it's the Hawaii Five-O theme track bequest.

Rising string instruments and captivating horned West Wing themes represent the sincere (but perhaps ridiculous in today's politics ) show perfectism. There is a size and worth of the songs that could trigger a brief spark of wonder for our German administration among any spectator, regardless of his or her politics. Seamless (and splendid) combined with abundant string, plain upright and humming synth, the theme embodies the mix of rough past and slim futures that Westworld offers so easily.
You know that the music of a TV show is great when folks think more of the scores than of the show itself. The coldblooded theme for Henry Mancini's short-lived Peter Gunn tail serial, which made its debut in 1958, is perhaps the best-covered TV theme of all times, with everyone from Art Of Noise to the Blues Brothers having tried it.

Story telling humour like "Parents Just Don't Understand" had already attracted national interest for the painter, so that when it was his turn to compose a tune to tell the story of his altar man's transition from the East Coast roads to a wealthy personal life, it was already Smith's passivity.
