The Sopranos theme is simply the best, ever.Best from the Present, w. lyrics (still airing new episodes) - undecided -- think as I might I can't really think of many good ORIGINAL lyric-based theme songs on current T.V. They all use songs from other media now.
I confess to liking the Spongebob theme too - love listening to my kiddies sing along with it.
For past shows, though, I have to give the nod to All In The Family. The Jeffersons had a great theme song too. The art of the original theme song was definitely left back in the '70's.

I realize by the rules here that the theme from the OC wouldn't count so I'll replace it with the Cheers theme. I don't know if the Grey's Anatomy theme is original to the show or not.
For kids shows, when my son was little we enjoyed the theme songs from Fraggle Rock, The Snorks, The Elephant Show, and The Gnome.

Tonight I was watching a British series on Showcase called "Nighty Night". It's very bizarre and darkly funny. The theme song has been driving me insane for a couple weeks now, because I know I've heard it before. After much googling, I finally found out (from IMDb - the place I should have started) that it was also used in a 1973 movie called "My Name is Nobody". It's a spaghetti western with Henry Fonda which I've watched several times.
Just needed to share that. Now I can sleep. Although I'll be humming that theme all night.

I think the theme to Saved By The Bell (I'm pretty sure it was written directly for the show) will always be a sentimental favorite. I swear I saw every episode of that 8 or 9 times growing up, lol. About 15 years later and I still remember all the words.......
By the time I got my books, and I give myself a look, I'm at the corner just in time to see the bus fly by..........
I also enjoy the themes for Charles In Charge, MASH, Melrose Place, 90210, and Facts of Life.

I enjoy the Cheers theme and also Frasier.
Never quite understood the 'tossed salads and scrambled eggs' but still put it up at the top. And what about Laverne and Shirley-schlemill, schlemozell!
Isn't that how it started?
