Strange question, but... is there a movie, tv show, video game, etc., whose theme you refuse to skip and just have to listen all the way through?

Most of my time these days is spent cataloguing and archiving my favorite things into their various different categories. Trying to create comprehensive lists is always torturous.

Seriously tho, ranking favorite things is like pulling teeth to me

Off the top of my head for TV/anime:

  • Game of Thrones
  • Fate/Zero op 1 and 2
  • Fate stay/night UBW op 2
  • Attack on Titan op 1,2,3,6
  • Justice League Unlimited
  • Ben 10
  • Danny Phantom
  • Teen Titans
  • Kim Possible

Hard to decide for games since many of them don't have a theme song. But Skyrim would be one for sure.

skipping all of them. I watch a theme once maybe 2 or 3 times, maybe a bit more, but after a while i skip them.

I've probs watched suikoden 4 opening the most... at least when i was playing the game.

@killbilly

nice list!

  • For Bojack, the music is alright, but the vapid degeneracy of the main character is something I could never get behind, and it's tough to judge an opening theme of a show you despise.
  • I absolutely agree with BtAS and TT
  • Evangelion's chorus is A tier but it gets really slow in the middle
  • Katara's voice over got annoying for me as a kid but the visuals were always A tier.
  • Kim Possible's ringtone is catchy, but the music is just too dated for me
  • DP suffers from the rap elements at the beginning, but the chorus is good.
  • (does watchmen count if it's a movie?).

I always end up skipping intros if I'm binge watching something. But as for tv themes I'll sit through a few times, head cha la, x-men tas, lilo and stitch, teen titans, a cruel angel's thesis, and steven universe.

I'm not sure about video games. The theme for raging blast 2 is a banger. Nerevar rising, reign of the septims, and dragonborn are amazing. All three have the same leitmotif

Fair, though funnily enough, it's the vapid degeneracy more than the music that kept me watching Bojack's opening. It's a good foundation to start each episode since it's kind of the thesis of the show.

For me, I feel like if the Evangelion opening had kept the energy at the same level as the crescendo the final section of the song would have lost some of its impact.

I just loved that each episode always started us off by reminding us the importance of Aang and the journey. Despite there not always being a grand narrative arc ( outside of maybe a destination ) it imbued each episode with a certain aura of significance.

KP and DP's themes hold potent nostalgia for me so I understand if others don't enjoy them as much

I think so? I know what you mean though since movie scenes differ from show openings in terms of their function and utility to the greater narrative.

Grey’s Anatomy opening, it’s 3 seconds long so there’s no need to skip it.

The Season 1 Opening was longer but that one is a banger so I don’t skip it either.
