IMO Welcome Back Kotter is the best tv theme song ever, although I was not that big a fan of the show.  John Sebastian is a great songwriter.

Not only is Lonesome Dove the best western ever made, it also has one of the best theme songs of any western.

Ya gotta love a 120lb snarky gal who can drink a quart of Scotch, smoke a pack of cigarettes and then beat the crap out of 300lb guys.

The Jeffersons, and the funky instrumentals from Sanford and Son, or Barney Miller. I always liked the second part of the "All in the Family" song that they played during the closing credits no singing just a great piano.

OMG, How could I have forgotten that one. I love that song. And I love that opening, since my dad was one was of the engineers who developed the LEM, my whole childhood was the space program.

I don't know if I have a favorite, but I think the Twin Peaks theme really stands out as something special. Seinfeld is up there, too, but with a much different feel. Both are so unique and unforgettable.

And then there's the combination of the two... 

Twin Peaks

Seinfeld

This came to mind.  It's from SNL from the old days.  Maybe slightly racist so you're forewarned.
