Guild HV/Film Distrubtion "GO GUILD!"
This one is self explantory.

The music is so catchy, espacaly the disco/orcistra part! (TNZ Two's music is also great, with the disco overture part.)
Live (1998)
So majestic and very nice.
Guild Home Video (1985)
The music is the best UK music and it's very catchy, trust me, the first time you listen to it, you will get hooked.

United Artists (1981): Just a dramatic fanfare and perfect start to a movie. Too bad they didn't put it on their 1981-1987 movies
Roadshow Entertainment (current): Grew up with this logo and always loved the music
THX: All versions of the theme especially Amazing Life
Guild Home Video (1983). That is one one the best synth themes I have ever heard
Walt Disney Pictures (1985). Another logo I grew up with. Was the backbone of my childhood
Paramount Vistavision (1954). Great fanfare and puts you in a good mood
Paramount (1987) The fanfare used on movies like Fatal Attraction and Wayne's World. I love this fanfare so much. It is like a fanfare that you play when you accomplish something and I wish they used it more.

Screen Gems "S from Hell"
ITC "Compass"/"Spinning Diamonds of Doom"

Jumbo Pictures "The Egg" this has funny music both times. the trumpet one and the beatboxing one.
Paramount Lalo Schifrin Music. This is what you hear after you climb Mount Everest.

The cyan Greyscale Island. "Dee dee-dee dee-dee... dee dee dee-dee... dee dee-dee dee dee... dee dee dee-dee... dee... dee... mmmrrrrrRRRRRRWAAAAAAAAHHHH!"
Lorimar, the original Lorimar Snake logo. That dreamy harp progression... ^_^
Lorimar-Telepictures. I love that logo all around; it's probably my favorite logo. It brings back memories of Thundercats reruns. I get all teary-eyed and wistful when I hear that bombastic synth fanfare... "Dah dah DAH DAAAAHHH! ... ding, ding, ding".
The Rankin-Bass Bongos. Many good Christmas memories of that one... Also, in the same vein, the Rankin-Bass Animation logo, with the springy Oboe theme. Doo doo-de-doo-de-DEE-doo-de-doo-de-doo dooooo"... Followed by the Lorimar-Telepictures, "dah de-de dah daaaaahhh!"
Metromedia Television 11, the seventies logo. The first time I heard it, I was hooked. Sing it with me! "Metro! Media! Television! Eleven! Eleven! Eleven!"
The PBS P-Pals. "This is: Pee-Bee-EEEEESSSSS! OOOOH-hoo-hoooooo!"
Snee-Oosh as well. Good memories of that one after Hey Arnold!. "SNEEEEE-OOOOOOSSSSHH! *weird flute and gong noise*"

Columbia Pictures Television 1987-1993 theme. I just like the fanfare :)

My favorite logo theme..... Well, I remember it well. It was an old VistaVision logo variation. It was black and white... and it had a kind-of hard to describe fanfare..... but I can say this: It was extremely triumphant and just beautiful. It was on the Paramount page long ago.... then it disappeared. I still can't find it. But the theme will be stuck in my head for all eternity..... do do-do-do do do do do do-do do-do-do DOOOO DOO DOO DO-DO-DO DO DO DOO DOOO DOOOOO DOOOOO DOOO-DOOO DO-DO-DOOOO(DO DO DO-DO-DOOO) DO-DOOOOOO DOO-DOO.......

My favourite logo theme is the theme of the 2006 Walt Disney Pictures logo. It's just so dreamy and sounds so nice!

Theeds32: ATV Russia A-A-A T-T V-V-V", "Aio-aio-aio at-at, Daio-Daio-Diao Aio-aio-aio at-at, A-TV!"

Graaaaagh (Rexeljet)

My favourite Ident/Logo jingles are:

Guild Home Video- All themes. The earliest ones have some sort of creepiness to them, whereas the jingles from the mid to late eighties are very catchy. The 1993 Guild ident has a very well orchestrated score.

ATV (Russia)- Who can't like the awesome 1997-2005 jingle? It's so catchy.

First Independent Films- There's something about that jingle that makes it so powerful and majestic, even if the accompanying animation is a bit billy basic!

Contender Entertainment group (1995-2000) The music is one of the tamest and most peaceful ident jingles just because it doesn't try to be overly stately, majestic, ominous, cute or threatening, it's just a jingle that will stick in people's minds.

Central Television (All idents)

Yorkshire Television (1994) Not sure what exactly I like about this one, but I like it anyway.

Macrovision (1997) Even though the ident itself isn't that great, I've always liked the jingle. It seems a little nostalgic at times.

-DHX Media (2014)--"D-H-X!" Still stuck in my head.
-Klasky Csupo (1998)--The beeping and sound effects are suitable for an animation studio. It takes your mind off Splaat.
-Lyrick Studios (1998)--Beautiful. Just beautiful.

-HBO (1982)--One of the most epic themes ever.
-PBS Kids (1999-2013)--This theme reminds me of my childhood every time I watch it. So nostalgic and so catchy. Even though they carried this on in the 2013 rebranding, the design still sucks.

-Universal (2012): This theme still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. It's THAT powerful.
-Warner Home Video (1985 and 1996): The 1985 one just sounds awesome, and the 1996 one is peaceful.
-Regency: In total darkness, the theme starts playing, then a blue aurora of light suddenly shines through as a flute plays..... E-P-I-C
-Guild Home Video: All of them! The 1985, 1987, and 1990 themes are catchy, while the 1980, 1983 and 1993 ones are just awesome to listen to.
-New Line Cinema: One of the best logo themes ever.
-Grampian Television: I'm not from the UK, but the theme is so catchy and 80s!
-Columbia Pictures Television and Columbia TriStar Television (1993): Lots of people hate these logos. But I like their themes.
-Orion Pictures (1996): Every time I hear this, it gives me goosebumps. But didn't I just say that on Universal? This theme is EVEN MORE POWERFUL.
-DiC Entertainment (2001-2008): That tune is so adorable and catchy. It's also stuck in my head.
-Viacom (1976-1986): It sounds so epic, and somewhat powerful.

-O Entertainment (1998-2007): Sounds nice, and pretty unique.

ALL Guild Home Video themes, except the 1983 and 1988 ones. The 1980 "Tubular Bells" theme is mysterious, relaxing, and creepy all at once, the 1985 and 1987 ones are well-done pieces of synth-pop, and the 1993 theme is mysterious and epic at the same time.
Carolco Pictures, both the 1985 and 1988 themes, just a nice, majestic fanfare.
Fax Video Design- An awesome disco tune.
