Name a decent theme tune

The nice lads at TV Today are wondering where all the good theme tunes have gone to these days. Any ideas? Off the top of my head, I could only think of some good US theme tunes and Torchwood‘s and The IT Crowd‘s (as well as the eternal Sky at Night‘s and Pobol Y Cwm‘s). Anyone got any better ones or know where the good themes have gone?
