Ethen..! Ethen OPEN THE DOOR....! 😂👍👍
Same Steven Hill from "Law & Order" !
The first theme Epic!
I love Mission impossible 88 with Jane Badler, For that movie was close to Tom Cruise style
Carol Kaye says (Carol Kaye: Sessions Legend Interview" time 12:20) she and Earl Palmer (Drummer) did this tune, but to my ear it sounds very much like a stand-up bass we are hearing here. Now you might say Carol plays stand-up too, but she chose bass partly because she would only have to carry ONE instrument to work every day. She spoke of "muting" the bass notes; perhaps this gave it a stand-up feel?
1st is the theme of MI
i wish they would keep this show on one of the many cable networks this is a very very classic show from the 1960s great great actors and actresses .
Fab then. Fab now. Bongos-a-gogo hipcat forever.
The best action tv series in television's history Mission Impossible
(Peter Graves and James Arness are brothers)James: I'm in Gunsmoke, lil bro. Beat that.Peter: *shares this link*
Season 5's intro must've failed since it obviously was to everybody a bad version, so that's probably why the first theme was brought back in season 6.
My favorite is 4:25
In 5/8, the best!
it still gives me chills whenever i watch the original theme song. the intro where jim phelps (peter graves) receives his mission briefings was also a favorite moment of mine. although after seeing Graves in the "airplane" movie, i could never again see him in a serious role. "hey jimmy, have you ever seen a grown man naked?" LOL, such a funny movie!
Where the heck is tom cruise
Nothing beats classic.
If I dont hear the bongos and wooden stix, its not the real theme song.....
I listen to this in my head whenever i'm doing anything dangerous and or foolish, and thus fun
THanks for making this superb video.
I"m in love with Martin Landau.
M:I before Tom Cruise
The bongos put the coolest accents on this 5/4 time signature and don't forget the claves that help define the "1" (there's a triangle with the flutes in the intro).
I noticed Robert Goulet
Inferior sin el tamor latino
I just noticed ..Leonard Nimoy’s credit as Paris the man of many faces isn’t in ANY of these!
Hay maker get a logo
i like the 5/4 time signature.
Expect the impossible!
Later versions were somewhat watered down but the gritty original remains one of the great TV themes of all time and still captures the excitement of a ground-breaking series. (Casting a black actor (Greg Morris) in a lead part was almost unheard of in American TV shows of the period.)
Greg Morris' real life son was cast as his character's son in the short lived 1988 revival. Outside of Graves returning as Phelps Greg Morris was the only original series cast member to reprise his role.
Leslie Warren was/is a huge talent.
Barbara Bain - whew !
Antony (Tony) Hamilton was stunningly handsome. He died of AIDS related pneumonia in 1995.
What ever happened to Peter Lupus?
The Fugitive Theme ranks #1 with and MI #2.
I think many here are agreed, the theme song version from the first 3-4 seasons is the best. Only problem with it is I am reminded that I had to go to bed. When this was on, I was in junior high school and my bedtime was 10:00, and this came on Sunday night at 10.
Martin Landau was also a member of the cast in later years I believe. So why is he not in the opening credits?
He and his then wife Barbara Bain left mid series because he wasn't given the same billing and money as Graves were.
The H bu are changing
I love this music! Its hot! My folks watched this when i was little- its a no nonsense, get the criminal show! All the crap today has personal lives involved! No thanks!
I saw the '80s version
Original was better,
Hello I need to contact you please respond it’s urgent
BTU press uses this for some of there history book videos
Yep, the original very first theme is by far the best. All the others are watered down bull crap.
As a kid, I used to watch this show just to rock out to the opening credits.
The 5/4 time signature, awesome!
First series with Stephen Hill (pre Peter Graves) was ground breaking as was Lalo Schrifins' terrific (5:4 time !) theme !
Lalo Schiffrin appears in second place at the ending credits
Only the theme from the first seasons is worth listening to.
This theme song is one of my best childhood memories, lol.
One of the best TV theme songs ever. This is what television is missing today. The TV theme song. Mission impossible again, one of the best TV theme songs ever recorded.
1) Mission Impossible 2) The streets of San Francisco 3) I Spy4) Name of the game 5) The Protectors 6) Starsky and Hutch (closing)7) The Saint (second score)8) S.W.A.TAlternates...Get Smart, Hawaii Five 0
0:13 is that George Takei?
Lalo Schifrin won the Oscar. Well deserved he has it. He is argentinian.
Season 5 ftw!
The First One Was Awesome
The theme songs of Mission Impossible and James Bond are bysome of the most recognizable and iconic theme songs ever written. I am awriter and I have just finished writing a book about the next superstarespionage agent to grace the pages of a written text, Richard "Dick"Dekker, agent Xtreme Justice Six (XJ6) "The Jaguar" of the XtremeJustice Agency (XJA). I have been told the character is ready for film. I amsearching for recognizable and iconic theme songs for XJ6 for the openingcredits, action sequence and transitional sequence that rival that of MissionImpossible and James Bond. Can anyone help me?
Many of the crews on Mission also did Star Trek at the same time. The Executive in charge of production was Herbert F. Solow Both on mission and Star Trek.
On TOP for me as the best TV theme song. The 1st variation, with the crisp, perfectly tuned bongos, is what made me want to become a bongocero to this day! Unbeatable theme from Lalo Schifrin!
BTW, those nice clave hits are also impeccable!
this is why I can't stand the MI movies. this was such an amazing show.
