PETER GUNN (#3 in 2013) 

Another big pop hit for Ray Anthony (#8, 1959), Duane Eddy (#27, 1960) and its composer, Henry Mancini. 

The TV series only ran for three seasons … but it left behind an immediately identifiable theme song that last time around came in at #3. (It takes a pretty significant tumble in this year’s poll, as it drops to #17 ... and yet I'll bet you've heard it more times than you could ever possibly count.)
