"Laverne & Shirley's" inspiring theme song.

TV theme songs can be good for more than just introducing a show; sometimes, they can inspire you.

Take "Laverne & Shirley" for instance. The show ended 29 years ago, but the iconic theme song lives on -- and not just for the "Schlemiel! Schlimazel!" -- but because of its message. Nothing was going to stand in those ladies' way; they were going to make their dreams come true.

From songs with lyrical messages, like the theme song of "The Golden Girls," to opening tracks with inspiring cords, like "Friday Night Lights," TV theme songs have a way of sticking with viewers years after the show meets its fate.

Who hasn't imagined throwing a beret up into the air while twirling in a circle after realizing you're going to make it after all? From "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" theme song to the opening tune of "The Hills," these are HuffPost TV's most inspiring TV theme songs.
