    No, the original used fir the tv theme, credited to Mort Stevens, was brilliant. The Ventures version wasn’t. If you’re going to tell me the original was The Ventures then it wasn’t what was released in the UK.

    I know that Mort Stevens wrote the tune...but I was under the impression that The Ventures were the original recording artists.....I could be wrong though (wouldn't be the first time)....

    That being said, the only version I know of is The Ventures.....

    now your gonna make me do some research :thumb::thumb:....at least it will be a fun search....:):)

    I got a kick out of this. So did my kids. I’d love to have seen the behind the scenes on this one. Eddie Vedder must have had a great time with this.

    Ha! This is the first one I thought of when I saw the title. The song ends with a fart on this CD.

    Interesting to see what you come up with. It was my dad (a drummer) who declared the drum roll at the beginning was ‘nothing like as good’ on the Ventures single I bought.

    Apologies to you Muddslide, and those who like it, but I hate this song. I had it on my iTunes for years, and every time it played it was worse than the last. It just falls so flat for me as a parody.

    "Hey Lurch, put Sammy down, he came with me!" Ugh. And this should be the best part of the song! :oops:

    +1! I love that they roll call their names instead of the fraggles'. :) We're Johnny, Scotty, Skippy, Timmy! lol

    I also think that when I play this theme song, I play it more Allister's way than the actual way.

    (I just wish Adrian had taken a few more runs at it, as he messes up some, but I love that he put up a guitar pro tab for me to "learn")

    OK....now to muddy up the waters....

    Here is the version from the show:



    And here is a record version The Ventures recorded in 1968:



    They are close, but like you stated, the drum patterns seem to be different...

    Still don't know if the Ventures recorded a different version that was used on the show, but here is a copy of "The Ventures" recording contract dated May 3rd, 1968

    I also found that Mort Stevens and his Orchestra recorded an album named
    "Original Hawaii Five-O TV Sound Track"
    but this album wasn't released until 1969....

    There are definitely 2 versions of the song and I am tempted to buy the Mort Stevens album just to hear if it is the original, like I'm now starting to think....

    This is fun....
