Made with the sounds on the Commodore 64 - 6 Channels

The theme is written in a 5/4 time signature which Schifrin has jokingly explained as being "for people who have five legs". However, a more likely explanation is that Schifrin started from the Morse Code for M.I. which is dah dah dit dit. If a dit is one beat and a dah is one and a half beats then this gives a bar of five beats exactly matching the underlying rhythm.

In 1996, the theme was remade by U2 members Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. for the soundtrack to the film.
