Book ’em, Tubbs

Those who watched “Hawaii Five-O” (the original, as I did) and “Miami Vice” (as I recently did) will be amused at this:

Which shouldn’t be a surprise. These are the top two opens to TV shows in history.

And it’s pretty obvious that Reza Badiyi’s titles for Five-O were the inspiration for Vice, and when Five-0 was remade, that and Morton Stevens’ theme music could not be extensively remade.

And, well, two were hit singles.

It turns out the original Five-O music was more versatile than Stevens could have ever thought.
