MUST WATCH

'Seinfeld' theme song was totally improvised

Whether you're a "Seinfeld" devotee or not, the iconic synth-bass sounds of the sitcom's theme music are unmistakable. And the man behind the improvised riff is just as original. Meet composer Jonathan Wolff; he's responsible for writing the theme songs to more than 44 television shows, including "Saved by the Bell: The College Years," "Will & Grace," and most famously, "Seinfeld." Here's how he created a theme song about nothing, that changed every show. This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
