Trying to compile playlist of pop-style songs that have been used as TV show themes. Suggestions welcome!

I am one of those people who is not very into music and seldom listens to 'albums' per se---they tend to only have one or two songs I like per album so most of my music collection is just random stuff. That said, I am bored with my random stuff and looking for some new songs.
My boyfriend has this massive CD of 'one-hit wonder' songs and I have had some success off of there. Quite a few of the songs on it are TV show themes and so were catchy and recognizable to me. I would like to find more songs like this---I don't mean instrumental melody theme songs, I mean pop-ish ones you could sing along to and enjoy as a song independent of their use on television. Perhaps the song was famous prior to being a TV theme song (Where You Lead from Gilmore Girls) or perhaps it became famous from the television show and even had some radio play (I'll Be There For You from Friends).
Here are some songs I have (or will have shortly) on the playlist already:
I'll Be There for You from Friends
Where You Lead from Gilmore Girls
Faith of the Heart from Enterprise
Little Boxes from Weeds
Closer to Free from Party of Five
Where Everybody Knows Your Name from Cheers
Lift from Biggest Loser Australia
One of Us from Joan of Arcadia
We Used to be Friends from Veronica Mars
In my Life from Providence
Can anybody suggest any more? It can be a song that was either written for the show or existed already, but I am looking for pop-style songs and not instrumentals. I want to be able to enjoy it as a song in its own right. Thanks for any suggestions!
