While this is objectively true, I'm having a hard time picking a "best" because I like too many theme songs.

I like Tank but nowhere near as much as Real Folk Blues. Plus, I sang Real Folk Blues for karaoke so I have a soft spot for it. When I took Japanese in college, someone introduced me to Cowboy Bebop in an "I know you don't like anime, but" kind of way, and the theme songs were by far the best part, imho.

Speaking of anime theme songs that I've sung in karaoke...

Really all the Disney Afternoon shows that were based off a movie had rad arrangements for the theme song.


Perhaps the greatest example of an extremely lopsided good intro:good show ratio.
