Get off my lawn squirt!
Seriously my favorite was pre 70's theme for the show Route 66. I was going to travel cross country in a red Corvette when I graduated college. I got drafted instead and saw more than I dreamed of.

Wow.....don't remember the song, but loved the show. As a kid, I thought it was reasonable that my first car would be an 18-wheeler rig.

One answer as to the best-BONANZA! When the show started I used to get my stick with the horses head on it and ride it around the living room all the while loudly humming the theme song in a near psychotic state. BONANZA baby and it's not even close!

Shame on everyone who didn't list "Greatest American Hero" or "The A-Team."

That song from Greatest American Hero was on the radio all the time.

Maybe not the greatest but undoubtedly the most played was “Johnny’s Theme” for Johnny Carson and The Tonight Show, interestingly enough written by 50’s teen idol Paul Anka. Anka also wrote “My Way” which Sinatra obviously made his own.

Apparently I've befallen the screen name swap with someone. Rawhide would not make my list.
