    Peter Gunn driving music. Sounds like henry mancini which maybe it was., which is always good.
    Monk, sounds like a good uke piece
    Private eye show with Sam Spade used Harlem Nocturne
    The Munsters. Just like it.

    I kinda like this one from All In The Family.

    Those Were the Days Charles Strouse and Lee Adams (1971)

    [C] Boy, the way Glen Miller played. Songs that made the [Am] hit parade
    [F] Guys like [E7] us we [Am] had it made. [G7] Those were the [C] days. [F] [C]

    Didn’t need no welfare state. Everybody [Am] pulled his weight,
    [F] Gee our [E7] old La[Am]Salle ran great. [G7] Those were the [C] days. [F] [C]

    [C7] And, you knew where [F] you were then
    [G7] Girls were girls and [C] men were men
    Mister, we could use a [Am] man like [A] Herbert [D7] Hoover a[G7]gain.

    People seemed to [C] be content. Fifty dollars [Am] paid the rent.
    [F] Clowns were [E7] in a [Am] circus tent. [G7] Those were the [C] days
    .

    Good to see this thread again! I still like the Jonny Quest theme I suggested earlier but here's another good one in a similar vein.

    Money can't buy happiness but it can buy a uke which is basically the same thing.

    Ukes are a lot like potato chips. It's hard to stop with just one!

    I'm assuming that this is about TV show songs that we can play. Gilligan's Island is our fave, our audiences love it!
    "Those who bring sunshine and laughter to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".

    Music washes from the soul, the dust of everyday living.

    I adore TV theme music and just bought a used copy of the TV Fake Book from 1995. It’s got some real gems in it, but there are definitely some that are missing.

    My favorite theme songs are (in no order):

    Ren & Stimpy

    The X-Men

    King of the Hill

    MASH



    But my favorite is probably Tales From the Crypt.
