The theme music to this classic television series, which aired between 1966 and 1973 is compelling and immediately recognizable. When Argentinian composer Lalo Schifrin wrote it for the series, NPR reports, it was an instant hit. That is endured into the modern film series, which has reworked the theme but found it irreplaceable.

In this remix, musician Jamie Dupuis uses a guitar and a banjo to perform the theme.
Although the banjo is traditionally associated with bluegrass music, it’s appropriate for so many other pieces, such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Eine Kleine Natchmusik” and “Flight of the Bumblebee.”
