Yes, we all remember those classic TV themes like Rawhide, The Flintstones, The Andy Griffith Show, Mr Ed, The Monkees, The Beverly Hillbillies, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Steptoe and son, Doctor Who, Coronation Street, Z Cars, The Onedin Line etc. etc. etc.
More recently there have been some outstanding American TV series where music is especially chosen by the directors and producers and match so well as if it was written just for the series.
In these cases the signature theme song or music can be iconic and synchronistic.
Here are some of my personal favourites.
1. THE WIRE
Way Down In The Hole by The Blind Boys of Alabama
2. THE SOPRANOS
Woke This Morning by Alabama 3
3. MR MERCEDES
It's Not Too Late by T-Bone Burnett
Long Hard Times To Come by Gangstagrass
5. TRUE DETECTIVE
Far From Any Road by The Handsome Family
