I’ve come to the conclusion that 1970s TV cop show The Sweeney has the best theme tune ever.
It’s the only TV theme I can think of where the tune so brilliantly matches the title of the show.
When you hear the saxophone playing Da Da Daaaa…. Da Da Daaaaaaaa, you just automatically start singing to yourself ‘The Sweeney….. The Sweeney’.
The sax even sounds like it’s saying ‘The Sweeney….. The Sweeney…’ when it’s playing.
I’m not sure there is any other TV theme where the tune matches the title of the show like that.
Or is there?
