    Default What theme tune instantly transports you back to your childhood?

    Inspired by something Wil said on the lunchtime tv shows thread, what theme instantly transports you back in time?

    Mine is Paddington Bear, remember vividly watching it on an evening with my dad.

    As soon as I hear it, it's the mid 70's and it wont be long until bed
    The only thing to look forward to is the past

    The Tomorrow People theme. The spookiest TV theme around in the 70's or since-it even beats the old Doctor Who theme for the chill factor.

    Jamie and his magic torch, poddington peas & Little house on the prairie. It's funny how powerful the memories from music are.

    I'd be happy to watch 'em all again... and I'm now 48.

    I started collecting TV themes in '99 - one of my many hobbies - and, the first time I'd heard it for years, the theme to 'The Rockford Files' (by Mike Post) instantly transported me back to the lounge of the house I lived in during the early '80s. I could visualize everything perfectly. I never actually watched the programme that often, but I used to watch whatever was on before it, and I'd always watch the opening titles of 'The Rockford Files' because I was interested in Jim Rockford's Pontiac Firebird which I recognised through having a Matchbox toy version of the car.
