Theme From S.W.A.T.

This is my contribution to Jim Adams blog this week for Song Lyric Sunday. This weeks theme, songs from TV shows…

The song was released in November of 1975 and reached number one on Billboards Hot 100 chart in February of 1976. The instrumental was written by Barry De Vorzon and performed by the band Rhythm Heritage.

From Wikipedia.

As the title implies, it was the opening theme music for the 1970s American television series S.W.A.T., though it is a noticeably different recording from the actual TV theme version, which was performed not by Rhythm Heritage, but by Barry De Vorzon’s own orchestra with arrangement by Dominik Hauser.

  1. Reminds me of the theme from the movie Shaft. I don’t remember this series but I remember Robert Urich from “Ice Pirates” and one other show where he was a detective (forgot the name of it).

      1. I just looked it up on IMDB and the show was called, “Spenser: For Hire” Synopsis from imdb: “Mystery/suspense series based on Robert Parker’s “Spenser” novels. Spenser, a private investigator living in Boston, gets involved in a new murder mystery each episode. Using his years of experience, his natural talents for observation and reasoning, and the occasional bit of help from his friend Hawk, Spenser never fails to crack the case.”
