Best sports theme songs of all time

March 20, 2009

When March Madness rolls around every year, the CBS music for college basketball has a stickiness factor.  Whether you are a kid, college student, or adult, throughout the month of march you hear a lot of humming.  Since it is that time of year, I have decided to post sports theme songs that we have all learned to hate or love over the last twenty years. I am ranking them from best to worst based on my opinion.  I’d like to thank my buddy Fickler for gathering these theme songs for me.

1) NBA on NBC-  Say what you want, #1 all time by far:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AQ3IAriL0k&feature=related

2) College basketball on CBS- MARCH MADNESS BABY!- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K269iw7dk-I

3)NHL on ESPN- one of the classics, this is when the NHL still had fans:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PReim0Axt4

4)NFL Primetime-  If this doesn’t pump you up to go throw the pigskin around, what will? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l04xrCWKQxM&feature=related

5)One Shining Moment-  All those college athletes dreams of winning the Big Dance…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLsS0ek3IM8

6) MLB on FOX- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS7Y5b-u7Pg

7) NFL on FOX- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4VaHx3w9hk

8)NFL on CBS- personally my least favorite of the bunch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLWuVO38kn0

Feel free to add any that aren’t on this list.

Sorry, for some reason some of these won’t link directly, you will have to copy and paste.

    I agree 100% that the NBA on NBC is by far the best sports theme song, and I’m glad you had the NHL on Espn in the top 3. One you missed that I think is a memorable one, and perfect for the occasion, is the theme for the Masters. But overall, this list was top notch.
