I seem to have something in my eye

Inspired by a comment left by Steve Norgate on the post below, here’s a collection alternately wistful, melancholic, mournful and touching efforts that, providing you’re in the right mood, represent the five saddest TV title sequences ever made.

1) The Sweeney closing credits

2) Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy opening

3) How We Used To Live

4) Taxi

5) Band Of Brothers

    Yep, can’t fault that lot.

    Tinker Tailor, natch. And the end credits too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFS6lO6WaaM Just ups the quality yet another notch doesn’t it?

    How We Used To Live. God, many a tonsilitis enforced session with that laugh-a-rama.

    Taxi. Do not sit on your own listening to this music late at night. Unless you want a good cry. Bob James at his best there.

    Silas get’s my vote: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlDpXpcVyZI.

    How posh are these urchins?

    There was a strange melancholia to the end of Paperplay too. And Monkey, of course.

    Can I add a vote for T-Bag. I used to cry when that finished….

    The music… well… it makes me… sad!!!
