Mission: Impossible

A record that tries to do the impossible... and succeeds!

Yes, it's the sound track album to TV's Mission: Impossible, composed by "sixth member of the Impossible Missions Force" Lalo Schifrin. Where else can you find not only the fabulous Mission Impossible title theme but also cool jazz tracks devoted to each IM force member? There's "Jim On The Move", "Rollin Hand", "Wide Willy", "Cinnamon", and "Barney Does It All", plus "Danger", "The Sniper", "The Plot" and "Mission Accomplished".

"This album might not self-destruct in ten seconds," warns the liner notes, "but you will likely blow your mind." I did.

Great News: If you don't have the time, the patience, or the technical expertise required to get the original Mission: Impossible record shown here, you can do the next best thing and order a copy on CD! The disc has the same Lalo Schifrin tunes as the record, and if you're under 40 you probably won't even miss the scratches.

Mission Impossible Theme Lyrics (by Fred Milano & Angelo D'Aleo) 1966/7 Bruin Music

Fly away, Disapear, I'll be there, Waiting.

Run high, Run low, Don't stop, go,
No matter where you are bound,
I'm around, Waiting
Hypnotized on a string,

Lead me there, Anywhere, I don't care

Cannot stop and I won't stop,
Till you're mine
I keep dreaming of you, no doubt about it,
Took my head made it spin,
Somehwere where it's never been,

I'm in a dessert, The middle of nowhere,
With no shoes I calmly bear,
Burning coals of fire, but when I get through
That's when I'll begin to undertake a mission that's impossible

It's said no on can tame you, don't give it a try,
You'll fall off if you get that high,
And deep inside of all you beauty,
There's no feeling
They say you can't be made to laugh or cry,

No, I will have your love,
Thats why I am right, I'll have you
Run or try to hide, I'll stay beside
I'm gonna get you,

Don't be afraid if you may find, I'm on your mind,
Don't try to fight it,
Love's a waiting fuse, you can't refuse
we're gonna light it!

It is a wonder to hear "The plot" again. I used to hum that tune and drum it on the lockers metallic doors with a pal in high school, every time something was cooking. And something was always cooking... pahh-papam-papam-papam - Papam papam pahhh - padapadapammm... Eminently and fundamentally cool... (04-12-2004)
