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:
