Top 10 90's TV Theme Songs/Openings

For my first post, I figured I'd do an easy one. This list is based mostly on the nostalgia that coincides with growing up in the 90's, so sorry to any older folk who may disagree. I included videos from YouTube to bring back some memories. I did not include any "close calls"- shows that ended in the 90's, but were primarily known for being in the 80's (i.e. The Wonder Years and Cheers- two noteworthy openings as well.)

10.) Baywatch
Face it, who didn't run in slow-motion pretending to be a hunky/sexy lifeguard with this song in the back of their head?

9.) Dawson's Creek
Before the days of Gossip Girl and Skins, this was our first taste of pure teen sexuality themed by the now-classic Paula Cole single.

8.) Are you Afraid of the Dark?
Honestly, if you grew up in the 90's, you cannot deny that this creepy intro did not give you chills- and the perfect mood-setter for this terrifying (yes, terrifying- don't tell me you don't still think about that creepy clown episode) series.

7.) Family Matters
Ahhh, such a catchy, jazzy tune to introduce us to the Winslow family and Urkel's crazy antics.
*Could not find actual theme video*

6.) Saved by the Bell
Rarely can a 90's kid resist singing along to this tune.
*Could not find actual theme video*

5.) Step-by-Step
Who could forget the classic theme-park opening to this TGIF starter show??

4.) Beverly Hills: 90210

Even without lyrics, this song still lives embedded in the minds of those who pine over the Peach Pit days.

3.) Full House
The list wouldn't be complete without this opening to one of the 90's most wholesome classics.

2.) Friends
One of the biggest shows to come out of the 90's and launch the careers of many- and giving The Rembrandt's something to be known for- This tune will forever go down in nostalgic slideshow history.

1.) The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
No explanation is even needed for this one- You can not have grown up in the 90's and not know this verbatim.
