The Top Ten

1 Game of Thrones

While everything about this show is of the highest quality and greatness there's no surprise that the soundtrack is excellent. From the magnificent intro to the beautiful and exciting songs and scores placed perfectly throughout show, Game of Thrones is undeniably a masterpiece with a first-rate soundtrack.

The music is so epic and intense on this show, I can listen to it for hours upon end, it plays a part in making this show great.

I can't imagine any other series topping this one. Never has anything been so epic.

Just listen to "lights of the seven" after watching any climactic episode.

2 Twin Peaks

Ennio Morricone DID NOT write the theme song for Twin Peaks. Angelo Badalamenti gets full credit here.

Marvelous soundtrack throughout. Twin Peaks is a cult masterpiece!

It is epic sound that will live forever

Best T.V. soundtrack I've heard

3 Breaking Bad Breaking Bad Breaking Bad is an American crime drama television series created and produced by Vince Gilligan. The show originally aired on the AMC network for five seasons, from January 20, 2008, to September 29, 2013.

The way all sorts of different genres are incorporated, from classical to rap to ska and reggae along with Dave Porter's excellent original songs makes the show very special. - maxbastow

They were many great soundtracks included, and the theme soundtrack was great to - MatrixGuy

An incredible blend of the finest songs of various genres, interwoven with the stunning original score truly plays a part in the masterpiece that is Breaking Bad.
I love this show so much!

Best soundtrack --SHIMMY SHIMMY YA,BABY BLUE

4 The X Files

Where is the sopranos. Epic fail list

5 Doctor Who Doctor Who The Doctor a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous, he travels around in his time machine called The TARDIS which stands for time and relative dimensions in space. The show was first broadcast on 23rd November 1963 one day after JFK was assassinated! The show has since ...read more.

I grew up with this show and it's incredible soundtrack is a part of my childhood. While I love Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad (not just the music, but those shows in general) they cannot compare to the beauty and magic of the sound of Doctor Who. Words cannot describe it, it's just breathtaking, it's some of the best music I have heard. It's up there with the music to The Lord of the Rings, Jaws, The Empire Strikes Back and 2001: A Space Odyssey. If ever you have some time to spare, use that time to listen to the soundtrack of series/seasons 1-6. It's so, so good. then watch the show if you haven't already. Then rewatch the show. Then listen to the music. Then watch it again.

I'm listening to the music right now. This is my happy place.

One of the best I have heard. Murray Gold is responsible. This orchestral genius produces a range of emotions with his epic arrangements, played expertly by the BBC Wales Orchestra. It's atmospheric and encapsulates the themes of the series perfectly.

Whenever I heard its music, I've got thrills going on all my back! And that happens only to music containing a lot of emotions, which is the case the Doctor's soundtracks.

Murray Gold is a true musical genius. His music has helped me through many a trying time in my life, as has the show itself. Honestly, it deserves to be a contender for the #1 spot.

6 Battlestar Galactica (2004)

Clearly the person composing this list forgot their hearing aid while watching BSG, or quite simply never got around to it, but either offense is unforgivable given the nature of this top ten endeavor. If the 80-episode series seems too daunting, you are more than welcome to listen to the soundtrack on Youtube without watching the series, but doing either would assure this fantastic composition a place at the top of this list.

A Bob Dylan cover worked into the greatest moment in T.V. history? Battlestar should be number 1.

The soundtrack is amazing. The way they worked the song in to the story is breathtaking.

This show has the best soundtrack of all time! I swear, almost every episode, I'm saying; "Hey, I LOVE that song! "

Oh my God! This show has such a kick*** soundtrack! How can it possibly be this low?

This show's soundtrack was a perfect blend of the songs that I already knew and loved, and songs that I fell in love with.

Well with Dean manning the music the soundtrack for the show can only be awesome. Because driver picks the music and shotgun shuts his cakehole. - NerdBunny

The Contenders

11 La Femme Nikita

Sean Callery and a lots of high quality bands created absolutely precise mood for the best TV series of all times. It went really good with the great characters of Michael (Roy Dupuis) and Nikita (Peta Wilson). - tem

12 LOST

Easily the best soundtrack of all time. Great at capturing the emotion in the show, especially the slower ones. I think the show gains so much in terms of emotional connection because the soundtrack is so good.

"There are many great soundtracks out there, but the best has to be LOST. This soundtrack defines all the action, death, and mystery of the show. It's part of the reason why the show was so emotional. Without this soundtrack, the show would still be amazing, but not the same. It helps capture the audience, leaving them hungry for more."

Definitely the best soundtrack ever, very good at sharing emotions with the viewer.

I do not tell it BUT my he art does!

13 One Tree Hill

So great! All songs, all the soundtrack *--*

This show should be top one! Aside from the songs that were selected to play, actual artists performed in the show.

Music is the most essential part of this show, and the lyrics always reflect the feels.

Game over! One tree hill shoulder be number 1
