The Simpsons theme was written by Danny Elman but the show has the distinction I believe as being the only TV show to have a slightly different title sequence opening each show – the "chalkboard gag", “Lisa's solo” and the “couch gag”.

They did a great GOT themed opening.

I bet you didn't remember this gentleman (yes, it's that Randy Newman) did the theme and much of the music for this television classic . . .
