Magnun P.I. Theme Song

Below are two Magnum P.I. intro theme songs. The first one is probably the one most associated as its theme song—the one with the catchy guitar riff. The second one (I think) was the one used for the first few episodes of the first season. As for now I have no further information about the theme songs. Damn it, two posts in a row.

    It starts great but at 0:15 they do the “daa, daaa. da” thing and it’s just horrid. Also, the video uses short clips from previous episodes which is really irritating. It’s also slightly reminiscent of the Miami Vice theme but the Miami Vice instrumental never get tedious and the MV video seems independent of specific episodes.
