The Loopin' Louie theme song was pretty epic... just do a youtube search for mainstream board game commercials. There are probably more than you think.

Everybody of a certain age remembers at least one classic:

You will learn about life when you play the game of LIFE!

And this thread wouldn't be complete without:

I remember something about that in Mad magazine, from the late 1960s or so: songs for schools that couldn't afford sports teams and held board-game matches instead.

In fact, I remember the song for Monopoly so well, I'll bet I can re-create it here from memory:

(to the tune of "The Halls of Montezuma")
From the slums of Baltic Avenue,
Round to Boardwalk and Park Place,
We will buy up all the properties,
Build hotels on every space.

We will drive our foes to bankruptcy
If they fail to pay the price,
But we cannot even start the game
Till somebody finds the dice.
