Bob James.... Genius. Sign of the Times, one of my all time favourite albums.

As for T.V. theme tunes.. Cheers, and Black Beauty two of my favourites. Some others worth a mention.

Inspector Morse by Barrington Pheloung
Owen M.D.  Sleepy Shores by Johnny Pearson for those of you old enough to remember, is a beautiful piece of music.
B.B.C. ex snooker theme.  To the Unknown Man, by Vangelis. Another genius.
Friends.  I'll Be There For You by The Rembrandts
Tales of the Unexpected by Ron Grainer
The Virginian. Lonesome Tree conducted by Stanley Wilson
The Civil War.  Ashokan Farewell by Jay Ungar
The White Horses.  White Horses, Jackie Lee
Howard's Way.  Simon May

My favourite out of the above would be Ashokan Farewell.
