"Wings"- Call me a softie, but the piano and that twin Cessna flying over the water...

"Cheers"- C'mon, which one of us hasn't either had a place or wanted to have a place "where everybody knows your name" (bonus points if you've ever gotten the "Norm" welcome at a bar)

1. Mission impossible by Lalo Schifrin....GREAT!!!

2. The Persuaders...John Barry...very nice and layed back!

3. The Avengers...Laurie Johnsons (I believe)...also pretty great!

4. Tatort...Klaus Doldinger...now that is great on TV and live, saw him play this summer in Berlin Koepenick, and at the end, he played tatort live, 10 minutes of pure joy!!!
I know it's only VfB but I like it!

I like the one from that show "Great American Hero" (or something like that)

Also like (although I hate the show) the Baywatch theme.

The theme to "JAG" is quite good.

Definitely the theme song to Magnum P.I.  Big thumbs up I always loved that intro at each episode.


Second would perhaps be the "Aloha e Komo Mai" song for Lilo & Stitch: The Series. I enjoy hearing that as well.

The theme from the classic Andy Griffith show is my all-time favorite. The natural whistle is hard to master, but I'm working on getting it down pat.  Wink/being sarcastic Regards.
