There are so many different elements that go into creating a television show, but perhaps no factor is as key as a good theme song. Title sequences introduce you to the vibe of the show, whether it's dramatic ballad for romance series or peppy pop tune for guilty-pleasure reality show. Whether you grow up watching cartoons during after-School specials or use Netflix binges to keep up with more intense shows, it's easy to get attached to series' theme songs, but do you truly pay attention to who performs them? Some of your favorite singers in the game didn't just create hit songs for themselves, but they also set the mood for some of the classic television Show we all know and love. Read on to find out which theme songs of TV past and present were actually performed by famous artists. Before Kardashians took over the reality TV show world on Keeping Up With Kardashians, there was another California-base reality show in the early 2000s that got the ball rolling: Laguna Beach. Lauren Conrad, Spencer, and Heidi Pratt, and Brody Jenner all get their start on this so-call reality Show, and to amp up the drama, show creators borrow Hilary Duff's now-iconic song come Clean to ring in each episode. Remember that cringe-worthy MTV Show my Super Sweet 16 where the camera crew follow around Super rich and Super spoiled teenagers as they plan over-The-top Sweet sixteen parties? Then You can probably already imagine that theme song performed by none other than Hilary Duff. That's right, Disney royalty lent her voice to not one, but two different reality shows. We can already picture the show's end card as Duff's croons Sweet 16! Anyone who watches the hit Netflix Show Orange Is New Black will immediately recognize the catchy and ironically upbeat theme song of the show, sung by indie pop sweetheart Regina Spektor. Spektor write you've got Time specifically for the Show, and OITNB creator Jenji Kohan told Entertainment Weekly it was her plan all along: I listened to Regina's albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song. I had total faith in her and she nail it. Music icon and Broadway force Carole King lent her talent to gilmore Girls With its thematic track where You Lead. While the song was actually first created by King in 1970, it's hard to associate it with anything other than a hit series by Amy Sherman-Palladino. And not only does King frame the show with her voice, but she even had a few cameos as Stars Hollow shop owner Sophie Bloom of Sophie's Music shop. Any late or 2000s kid will immediately recognize rock band Bowling for Soup as soon as some of their hit songs like 1985 or High School Never end begin to play, but the group wasn't only known for their hit singles and punk aesthetic.

For Adblock:

The first six episodes of the 1994 FOX drama Party of Five never even featured a theme song, but due to low ratings, FOX executives changed that. The chosen song was Closer To Free by Bodeans, band from Wisconsin who during the 80s had played alongside U2 and Peter Gabriel. Their 1993 release Go Slow Down was an energetic early 90s alt-Rock album and due to the success of Closer To Free, band experienced their first chart-topper in early 96. When FOX launched spin-off of Party of Five in 1999, Jennifer Love Hewitt's series Time of Your Life, band contributed another song but the results were as successful. Time of Your Life was canceled after three months and Party of Five left the air not long after in 2000 when co-star Neve Campbell decided to focus on movies. It was Time For Salingers to leave home and Closer To Free was the perfect song to see them off.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

At one time, Theme Songs that opened television series were almost as famous as the shows themselves. People could sing along with the themes of old shows like Cheers and Happy Days and know exactly what show they introduce. This went into overdrive in the 90s, thanks to shows like Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was a rare show in that main star sang the theme to the show, as Will Smith was a musical artist before he was an actor. The 90s was also a time when alternative rock rose to the top of the charts, and many series, both dramas and sitcoms, had songs from famous artists that topped the charts. Shawn S.

The Jeffersons

In the midst of international turmoil, new Twitter debate has been born. Online conversations are putting a bit of lighthearted pressure on commenters to reveal their top television theme songs of all time. Some super memorable tunes were mention, but Jefferson's theme song quickly moved on Up to top spot for dozens of Twitter users in conversation. The conversation was started by Christopher Gates, who inquired about TV fans' longstanding-favorites on Tuesday. Gates requests commenters not to stick with the well-know Friends theme song, and inspire more creative results. Jeffersons, which aired from 1975 to 1985, make their way into his comments quickly and seem agreed upon by many. The song, Movin' on Up, has roots in pop culture history, too, which could be the reason so many were drawn to it. Fun fact about the song reveals that one of the track's prominent male singers was also featured in Michael Jackson's hit song Thriller. In addition, background vocals were provided by a 35-member Gospel choir, according to Me-TV. Though the song clearly gained respect from many, it wasn't only my favorite list. Others had different submissions. Everything from Brady Buch's iconic intro to Golden Girl's unforgettable song were listed among other television classics like MASH, Cheers, Airwolf, Good Times and XFiles. Internet conversation imply all beloved theme songs now hold a sense of nostalgia. While that may be the root of each favorite track, it points to the ever-changing involvement of theme songs in modern television. In recent decades, television themes have pivoted far away from lengthy, minute-long openers. Instead, series like Modern Family, Breaking Bad or Making Murderer serve as better examples of what's expect. Instead of lyrical welcomes, each song is narrated by simple instrumental line. Even Game of Thrones, which invests time and design into its theme, leads with powerful instrumental moment, no vocals require. While songs may be considered iconic and memorable in their own way, they lack the sing-along type of nostalgia that would categorize them among the top favorite intros of all time, as seemingly none make popular lists. For those craving to dive back into Jeffersons, series is currently available to stream on Hulu.
