The Television series, “Mission Impossible” first appeared in 1966, and was produced on and off until 1990.
The theme was written by Lalo Schifrin who also worked with Clint Eastwood on the “Dirty Harry” movies.
Instantly recognisable it has been in our collective consciousness for decades as it has also been made into a movie franchise with Tom Cruise.
The fifth movie in the series is about to go into production.
I really like the work of the Piano Guys: innovative with their instruments, their arrangements and their You Tube clips.
Lots more information on The Piano Guys’ You Tube channel.
Here’s the original version – just for fun – as it first appeared on our TV screens.
I have to admit I also loved the theme from “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” which appeared in 1964. And many, many others: a huge list for sure!
It was written by Jerry Goldsmith who was a prolific writer of both TV and movie soundtracks.
