* Ace's {{Leitmotif}} from "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonVIIStokeMeAClipper Stoke Me a Clipper]]". Very appropriate for a daredevil pilot who rescues princesses [[LadyInRed in sexy red outfits]] from ThoseWackyNazis and turning their own AnimalAssassin alligators against them. What a guy! What a theme!

* The music written for the end of "[[RecapRedDwarfSeasonVIOutOfTime Out of Time]]", as the crew fight against their future selves, culminating in Rimmer's race to destroy the time drive.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-CG6gCrPYM "The Rimmer Experience"]]. The closest thing ''Red Dwarf'' has to a VillainSong, and frankly a ridiculous one at that. And it is ''brilliant''.

* The episode "Gunmen of the Apocalypse" gives the theme tune [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uz9CkuxCbs a western spin]], resulting in one of the best and most spine-tinglingly awesome pieces in the history of ''Series/RedDwarf''. The Western music plays whenever the Dwarfers are being badass and also at their SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome at the end.

* Ace's {{Leitmotif}} from "Stoke Me a Clipper". Very appropriate for a daredevil pilot who rescues princesses [[LadyInRed in sexy red outfits]] from ThoseWackyNazis and turning their own AnimalAssassin alligators against them. What a guy! What a theme!
* From "Queeg": There's a brief rendition of "Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darling", sung by Howard Goodall (who sang the chorus of the Rimmer Song and composed the theme tune) as Holly prepares for his showdown with the title character. It's only short, but it's incredibly well done. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZDznNviidg Here it is in all its glory]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qUmB0sUUSk The Ace Rimmer cemetery.]]
* The version of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2kMXMbVuaM theme tune]] from "Meltdown", which is sung by ''Music/ElvisPresley''! Okay, it's actually Clayton Mark, an Elvis impersonator, but you get the idea.
* The music written for the end of "Out of Time", as the crew fight against their future selves, culminating in Rimmer's race to destroy the time drive.
* The Canaries' {{Leitmotif}} from "Cassandra" is suitably militaristic and captures the tension of the Dwarfers' suicide mission aptly.

* The variations on the main theme, from the slow ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' like opening for series [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUsHr8fLQe0 one and two]], to the insane rock stylings of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0NqHU_Js-8 opening theme]] for the rest of the series. Not forgetting the catchy lyrics of the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHSRbD_69yk closing theme]], unchanged since the first episode.
** Not to mention the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTEpiFcn0wI full length]] version at nearly 5 minutes long which combines the original orchestral opening from the first two series and the closing theme, but includes the extra verse that wasn't in the show AND a fairly awesome bridge to tie both of the sections together!

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycVPAmAoXcw "Theme From Red Dwarf"]]. It segues from your ordinary sci-fi spaced-out theme to the most over-the-top rock and roll craziness imaginable. Pity the full thing was rarely shown on the show.
