When you tell people that you play in a band that covers TV theme tunes, they always say “Oh! Do you play ‘Surprise Surprise’?” or whatever. Sometimes the suggestions are good, but we tend to forget to write them down. So, if you’ve got a suggestion, do please bung it in the suggestions box below. There are two rules:

1. We don’t play any theme tunes that feature singing. We have a “no singing” policy. Not because we can’t sing – actually we’re quite good – but we’re trying to avoid a situation where someone in Dream Themes becomes the frontman. No individual is bigger than Dream Themes. We operate according to an extreme left-wing ideology. Or something.

2. We’re trying to avoid themes that were only on TV before 1980 or so – mainly because the people who remember such themes tend not to come to gigs because they’re gardening or whatever. And we end up playing ‘Dixon Of Dock Green’ to a crowd of 27 year-olds who are wondering what the hell we’re doing, and what the hell they’re doing watching us.

  1. Theme from Weekend World which was Nantucket Sleigh ride by Mountain.

    Hawaii 5-0 would go down a storm I reckon.

  2. If I could only choose one, it would be The Tomorrow People. It’s almost Grandtandian in it’s concept.

  3. Would love to hear you guys do Hill Street Blues. Don’t remember the actual show very much, but the theme is an absolute classic!

  4. Desmond’s. Without the singing bit obvs.
    Failing that, the really wild show. Basically uptown funk but without Bruno mars

  5. Can’t believe no one has mentioned Tales of the Unexpected! Gig at Wanstead Tap was fantastic thank you

  6. The Doug Wood Band “Drag Racer” (BBC Snooker Theme Tune)
    and the Kickstart/Junior Kickstart theme please
