Top 10 TV Series with the Best Soundtracks

The Top Ten
1 Game of Thrones Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A 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.

Listen to "the king's arrival" and everything you once thought about T.V. soundtracks will change. All the music in this show is so well fitted to what is happening in the scene, and it is epic and brings out all the emotion (the emotion is usually either awe or sadness) On par with the Lord of the Rings OST

2 Doctor Who Doctor Who is a British science-fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. The programme depicts the adventures of a Time Lord called "the Doctor", an extraterrestrial being from the planet Gallifrey. The Doctor explores the universe in a time-travelling space ship called the TARDIS... 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.

3 The X Files The X-Files is an American science fiction drama television series created by Chris Carter. The original television series aired from September 10, 1993, to May 19, 2002, on Fox.
4 Twin Peaks Twin Peaks is an American mystery horror drama television series created by Mark Frost and David Lynch that premiered on April 8, 1990, on ABC.

Beautiful score that sets the surreal, yet down to earth atmosphere of the show. Angelo Badalamenti is a genius!

Marvelous soundtrack throughout. Twin Peaks is a cult masterpiece!

5 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.

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!

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.

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

6 Battlestar Galactica (2004) Battlestar Galactica is an American science fiction media franchise created by Glen A. Larson. The franchise began with the original television series in 1978 and was followed by a short-run sequel series, a line of book adaptations, original novels, comic books, a board game, and video games.

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.

This should be number one. Game of thrones is inferior to this emotonel masterpiece. Bsg isn't as famous and will never be. That's a shame because If you know anything about composing music you know the amount a work Bear Maccreary must have spent on creating this perfect soundtrack.. All can say its on the same level as lord of the rings and braveheart and that's say a lot=)

7 Supernatural This haunting series follows the thrilling yet terrifying journeys of Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers who face an increasingly sinister landscape as they hunt monsters. After losing their mother to a supernatural force, the brothers were raised by their father as soldiers who track mysterious... read more

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.

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.

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

8 LOST Lost is an American television drama series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company from September 22, 2004, to May 23, 2010, over six seasons, comprising a total of 121 episodes.

Not usually someone who enjoys orchestral music with no words. But the soundtrack in lost in just brilliant. I still occasionally go and listen to some of them on Spotify, the nostalgic value coupled with the emotional connection to what is in my opinion the greatest show of all time, cements this as up and away my favorite TV show soundtrack of all time.

"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."

9 The Vampire Diaries The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural teen drama television series developed by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec, based on the popular book series of the same name.

Even though the show isn't great, the soundtrack is fantastic.

I love every single song in this show.

On my own personal view I love all the sound tracks from season 1 to the last season

10 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).

The Contenders
11 One Tree Hill One Tree Hill is an American television drama series created by Mark Schwahn, which premiered on September 23, 2003, on The WB.

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

12 Scrubs Premiering in 2001, this American medical comedy-drama follows the lives of doctors and nurses working at Sacred Heart Hospital. The series blends medical realities with humor and emotional moments, and has been acclaimed for its writing and performances.

Scrubs and Smallville are the top to me. Just going by the songs I heard while watching, not listening to the actual soundtracks.

Best soundtrack ever! It has many songs I liked when I was a child.

Every episode ending is memorable from the choice of music to accompany it

13 Sons of Anarchy Sons of Anarchy is an American crime drama television series created by Kurt Sutter that aired from 2008 to 2014.

Sons of Anarchy has so many good songs, and the best thing about them is that they used them perfectly in scenes, making the viewer feel different emotions.

Amazing music, creating emersion and emotion true to itself.

Amazing music, creating emersion and emotion, tryed to itself.

14 Sherlock

One of the best in business, no doubt.

15 Chuck

It has an awesome soundtrack. After each episode I have to look at the list of songs played that day.

16 Baywatch Baywatch is an American action drama series about the Los Angeles County lifeguards who patrol the beaches of Los Angeles County, California, starring David Hasselhoff.
17 Pink Panther
18 Millenium

Yoko Kanno's OST for Cowboy Bebop mainly consists of wild jazz and smooth blues pieces which set the perfect tone for an amazing show, yet can still be perfectly enjoyed on their own.
Some of the greatest vocal performances ever to be seen in an OST can be found here.

21 Suits Suits is an American legal drama television series created and written by Aaron Korsh. The series premiered on June 23, 2011, on the cable network USA, and is produced by Universal Cable.

BEST MUSIC EVER. Check out the end of S5E15 & 16, then the beginning of S6E1. I mean, seriously...Kaleo is really awesome with Way Down We Go. I can't believe this show isn't in the top 10. Better than most of these on this list, in my humble opinion. It introduces the audience to some great music that they probably have never heard, and suddenly you are searching for the songs on spotify!

Deserves to be in top tens. Consists best of songs. A very refreshing album if you ask me.

Suits is one of the best shows ever. But srs? What would Suits be whitout the great soundtracks!?...

22 The O.C.

Killers, death cab, Rooney, spoon, OK Go, and so on. This show is synonymous with the 2000s indie rock movement. Also it gave us "Mmm watcha say" and that's enough to be top 10.

23 Smallville Smallville is an American television series developed by writer-producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, based on the DC Comics character Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
24 Grey's Anatomy Grey's Anatomy is an American medical drama television series that premiered on American Broadcasting Company as a mid-season replacement on March 27, 2005.
