We all have songs that we can't get out of our heads, resulting in our randomly humming them while walking down the street.

Among the most infectious songs are theme songs to TV shows.

Be it from tuning in every week to catch up with Friends who will always" be there for [us]", or being "stuck in the middle" of a Grace And Frankie binge, we often find ourselves humming the theme songs of our favorite shows more often than we find ourselves quoting the best lines.

Even if it means humming an infectious melody to a wordless piece of music (Will & Grace or Seinfeld anyone?)


Redditor LinksOtherUncle was curious to hear what people considered the all time greatest theme song to a TV show, leading them to ask:

The only thing more comforting than turning on our TVs to revisit a familiar town with familiar characters, is the comforting familiar music which greets us on our return.

I never know the age of anything.

It's funny how we look at certain aspects of life and just have a certain sense of nostalgia attached.

Take Adele for instance. It feels like she's been a part of our lives forever.

But she's only 4 albums in.

That's a drop in the musical bucket.

A very magical and musical bucket.

Why do families keep secrets?

The truth will always finds a way home.

And it will of course be exposed at the most inopportune time.

Make sure you have a journal and write this stuff down.

It could be comedy/drama gold.

In one of the more memorable moments of the teen comedy classic Mean Girls, Queen Bee Regina George often rejects Gretchen Weiner's attempts at making "Fetch" part of the commonplace jargon at North Shore High School.

Even if we might not react the same way as the domineering Regina George, who hasn't found themselves rolling their eyes on numerous occasions when people use Buzzwords and contemporary phrases in the workplace.

Be it out of an attempt to appear cooler, or amidst fears of being politically incorrect, job listings, inter-office memos, and speeches at corporate events always feature commonly used buzzwords or buzzwords those speaking hope might find their way into everyday speech.

Much to the annoyance, if not outright disdain of those on the receiving end.

As a Spanish speaker—hooray for growing up in a bilingual household!—I have always been rather humored by moments when people were talking about me... under the impression that I didn't know what they were saying.

Imagine their faces once I proved them wrong!

Those who speak any other language have undoubtedly had a similar experience at least once.
