Does the soundtrack of a tv show episode include the theme song?

I'm attempting to add the songs from the soundtrack used in a particular episode to that said episode. And I need to know if the theme song counts? It's played near the beginning of the episode, but it's not part of the episode itself. Like all theme songs, it's played separately than the episode as an intermission. Does this count as part of the soundtrack for that episode?

Yes, you can add a song to any episode where it is used.

From Soundtracks:

"episode-level soundtrack listings are used for songs unique to a particular episode, as well as songs used in every episode (e.g. theme or closing songs). The latter should also be added at the series level."

Not sure how many will see this (since this is an older thread), but I just came across with a TV-series which includes the same song during the end credits. It’s just a song used as an ”ending theme”. It’s ”uncredited”, just like the other songs in this (older) series.

So are the Soundtrack credits for this song added to BOTH the series AND episode levels? Did I understood it correctly? Basically like the song ”Won't Get Fooled Again” from The Who should be added to series and episode levels.

Thanks.
