    These are all great, too! It's kind of hard to hear the Barretta theme, well, because of the wife killing and all.

    Ugh, YES, totally agree. I was so mad when they changed the opening scene b/c I loved when the music came in really hard at the same time Angel busted through the door.

    God I miss that show. :cry:

    Ditto. Some day I will learn to play the cello, just so I can play the Angel theme.

    Also:

    The West Wing. It makes me feel all patriotic and stuff.
    The Amazing Race. It makes me feel all adventurous and stuff.

    I'm a sucker for a good instrumental.
