    C'mon, get that ol' earworm out of your noggin! No masks here for coughing out the cranial clutter!

    Plus, since we're all bitter rivals, courting the Giveaway's bestowal, you get to aggravate others with what you exorcise. Weaken them to win.

    For me, this. So godawful it's great. Food coloring's "Layla."


    And this

    because of its Pavlovian power. If I hear a bit of it, I must watch the whole idiotic episode lest I miss a moment of Mary Ann. Tyrant!

    Residents of Idaho not eligible. Your catharsis may vary.

    I don't know why, but this song has been popping randomly into my head for 30+ years:

    I remember this one getting "stuck in my head" as a kid. It's actually an OK song and very much a product of the times (1963-1966). It was written specifically to open the show with the "set up" for the show about identical but very different cousins.

    I have a love-hate relationship with this era of proto smooth jazz. Some of the cuts on touchdown are just so hilariously corny you have to listen to them.

    Friends.

    the whole pallet of this show is anathema to me.

    But the song sort of rivets my disinterest.

    I used to like this theme song but when the show started to be more ridiculous than funny in a dry way, I began to associate the theme song with a sense of disappointment.

    I learned all about the blues and suffering one day as a teenager when my cousin brought his kids over for me to babysit despite my being bedridden with a flu that entire week. His kids insisted on me watching Spongebob with them in my feeble state. :confused::lol:

    I don't like very many old tv theme songs, though I do like some of them from the 1950's and some 1960's westerns...Have Gun Will Travel, Bonanza (because it's an instrumental that features an electric 12 string), Rawhide was ok too.

    I used to dislike the Perry Mason theme music, but in recent years have really started to appreciate it.

    Did you ever notice that the opening theme is in the key of G and ending credits theme is in the key of E?

    Although the thread is kind of sarcastic, I really don't like the Westworld theme because I feel it sounds like a rip-off of Rainbow's "Temple of the King".
