Fantastic Theme Music from the Entire Mission Impossible Franchise

Tom Cruise dominates the series now, but it did run from 1966-1973 on television, and in syndication, long before Cruise started breaking his legs and doing stratospheric plane jumps in the movie franchise. I remember watching this long ago, at the edge of memory, with my mother, and humming the theme with the spark burning through the ubiquitious bomb’s fuse.

The music theme has stayed surprisingly familiar all long. Enjoy this musical Mission: Impossible trip from last generation to today. You can’t not bop along. I dare you to try. That’s your mission, should you choose to accept it.

The very first version: Mission Impossible, the TV Series Theme Song (1966)
