This excellent song has recently been used in the hit film Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls. Many people have heard it used on television or radio as well. The catchy melody seems almost reminiscent of the great Bond Film themes. Enjoy! *Disclaimer* I do NOT own this music or any of the pictures included. All belong to their associated owners.

Barri- LYRICS: There's a man who leads a life of danger To everyone he meets he stays a stranger With every move he makes another chance he takes Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Beware of pretty faces that you find A pretty face can hide an evil mind Ah, be careful what you say Or you'll give yourself away Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Swingin' on the Riviera one day And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day Oh no, you let the wrong word slip While kissing persuasive lips The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Secret agent man

F. Sloan, Steve Barri Producer(s) Lou Adler "Secret Agent Man" is a song written by P. F. Sloan and Steve Barri. The most famous recording of the song was made by Johnny Rivers for the opening titles of the American broadcast of the British spy series Danger Man, which aired in the U.S. as Secret Agent from 1964 to 1966. The song itself peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. According to composer P.F. Sloan, the American television network that licensed Danger Man, CBS, solicited publishers to contribute a 15-second piece of music for the opening of the U.S. show to replace the British theme, an instrumental titled "High Wire". Sloan wrote the guitar lick and the first few lines of the song, with Barri (Sloan's songwriting partner) contributing to the chorus. This fragment was recorded as a demo by Sloan and Barri, submitted to CBS, and, to Sloan's surprise, picked as the show theme, which led to Sloan and Barri writing a full-length version of the song. The original demo of the song used the "Danger Man" title, as shown by the surviving demo of the song, which Sloan sang. When the show's title was changed, the lyrics were also changed. Ultimately, "High Wire" was also retained by CBS, as it played over the episode credits following the "Secret Agent" titles. Sloan and Barri's publisher/producer, Lou Adler, also produced and managed Johnny Rivers, so Rivers was chosen to add the vocals for the TV show. Rivers claimed he came up with the opening guitar riff that was inspired by The James Bond Theme (although that lick is clearly heard on Sloan's demo version). Rivers' original recording was merely the show theme, with one verse and one chorus. Later, after the song gained in popularity, Rivers recorded it live, with two more verses, and the chorus repeated twice more. The live version was recorded in 1966 at the Whisky a Go Go, but not released until after a few studio production touchups were done by Adler shortly after. The song evokes secret agents both musically (making use of a memorable guitar riff) and through its lyrics (which describe the dangerous life of a secret agent). The lyric; "they've given you a number and taken away your name" referred to the numerical code names given to secret agents, as in "007" for James Bond, although it also acts as the (unintentional) setup to the "continuation" of Danger Man, the cult classic The Prisoner.

The song evokes secret agents both musically (making use of a memorable guitar riff written by Chuck Day and inspired by Monty Norman's James Bond theme) and through its lyrics (which describe the dangerous life of a secret agent). In an unusual situation, due to the format of the series, the show's original British theme song, an instrumental entitled "High Wire", was actually retained as it was played over the episode credits following the "Secret Agent" titles. The lyric "They've given you a number and taken away your name," referring to the numerical code names given to secret agents, as in 007 for James Bond. When it was originally recorded by Rivers, it merely had one verse and one chorus. Later, after the song began to gain in popularity, Rivers recorded it live, with two more verses, and the chorus repeated twice more. The "live" version was recorded in 1966 at the Whisky A Go Go, but not released until after a few studio production touchups were done shortly after.

The original, 1960-1968 British series was titled "Danger Man," and starred Patrick McGoohan as secret agent John Drake. When the show was imported to the States, it was retitled "Secret Agent." This program is not to be confused with the much later UPN series, "Secret Agent Man" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6tSIEBc2u8&list=UUmKXh9m_xUJlKYgW5tMibEw). The clip here includes a teaser for the December 23, 1965 episode, "Say It With Flowers."

This UPN-TV series from 2000 featured "Costas Mandylor as Monk, a gallivanting secret agent, who was one of a team of agents that included Holliday, played by Dina Meyer, and Davis, played by Dondre Whitfield." As Wikipedia explains: "The series used an updated version of the 1960s Johnny Rivers hit, 'Secret Agent Man,' performed by Supreme Beings of Leisure, for its theme song. Because the original version of this song was also used as the theme song for American broadcasts of another television series, the 1960s British TV series, 'Danger Man' (primarily broadcast in the U.S. as 'Secret Agent'), there were some mistaken impressions that this series was somehow a spin off or remake of the earlier program, but other than the theme song, no connections were made evident."

Theme of a TV serie I`m not sure whether it was shown in Germany. I cannot remember having seen it :-((( Inspired by some great renditions here on youtube I wanted to record it too. ( based on the Johnny Rivers song ) I just added a rhythm guitar on a second track because there was only bass and drums on the BT. I hope you enjoy.
