I don't think I have 10. But, I like:

Law and Order
Dallas
Matlock (Awesome slide whistle thing at the end)
Night Court
Miami Vice
Barney Miller
Batman
Bonanza (It is awesome!)

But, my favorite ever is this. And, I hate that they stopped using it in 04. General Hospital's Faces Of The Heart theme. One of the prettiest instrumental pieces ever and it fit that era of the show so well.

OT: I hate that I posted the one where my favorite character/actor looks like a creeper. Bad shot JL....bad shot. (I'd tell him that on Twitter if I had the cajones)

The AMC one you posted first was used from Jan 5th 1990 to January 1995. The second AMC one was used from April 2004-December 2010.

The OLTL one was used from mid 04 to the end of the show's ABC run in Jan. 2012.

I'm an expert on soap openings. Just one of my things.

I love the first AMC one you posted too. It's known on the soap boards as the Falling Pictures opening. It was the first opening All My Children used that had the cast photos in the credits.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned my favorite instrumental theme song: The Big Valley. Perfect opening for that show.
