California, here we come. For fans of the mid-2000s Fox teen drama, enough said.
The kickass beat of this theme was made ten times more awesome by the addition of every costume Sydney Bristow had ever worn. From the blue rubber dress to the geisha getup, Sydney really knew how to comit to a cover.
Oh, Lizzie. Half the fun of watching this show was wondering what bizarre hairstyles would appear next. They really loved their crimping irons in the early 2000s, didn't they? Like any good teen sitcom, Lizzie McGuire's theme song was silly, sappy, and had a cartoon cameo from Lizzie's pushy alter ego. Good times.
For staying on the air 9 full seasons, it's amazing that the intro for How I Met Your Mother barely ever changed. There were only three deviations from the original version: The rock band version, the Barney version, and the very strange Russian doppelganger version.
I still get chills even thinking about this theme song. The creepy music, the rocking boat, and way too many giggling clowns for my tatse. It was the perfect way to psyche yourself up for a super scary tale every week.
Hands down, the girliest, cheesiest, catchiest theme song of them all. Sometimes you can't stand it, and sometimes you have to belt it out with a brownie-batter-smeared spatula in your hand, like a true Gilmore Girl.
