TV THEME SONG-ville -- Episode 5

Johnny Rivers' rockin', guitar-fused, definitive version of "Secret Agent Man" climbed all the way to No. 3 on the 1966 pop charts as the theme for CBS' Secret Agent, which lasted just one season.

Patrick McGoohan, better known as the star of The Prisoner, played British spy John Drake in this offshoot of 1961's Danger Man, in which he was the same character. It also was a one-season wonder.

Below is a full-blown version of "Secret Agent Man" during Rivers' appearance on David Letterman's old NBC Late Night show. Savor and enjoy.
