The Mentalist Theme Song

All I know for sure is that The Mentalist’s original music is credit to American composer, Blake Neely. In his studio’s site, he has a page dedicated to his favorite cues from the show (with streaming samples), and track #1 entitled “Believe,” is labeled “Theme from The Mentalist.” However, it is not the one used in the short intro of the series—the one where they show several definitions of “mentalist.”

It (intro song) actually sounds more like track #11 EP 103: Sand Castle, again from this page.


The Mentalist is just about to start its second season on September 24, 2009. It airs Thursdays 10 p.m. on CBS, and stars Simon Baker, Robin Tunney, Tim Kang, Owain Yeoman and the very hot Amanda Righetti.

  1. The Mentalist… like being mental? Wonder why they didn’t just call it Psych. Seriously, how much do the writers and producers at CBS get paid? Hey! I got a script for a show I call MAGNUM COP.. it’s umm, Tom Selleck… he fights crime as a New York City police detective and he’s bald and sucks on a lollipop… [morons]

  2. The Mentalist drama music on TV is louder then the actors, why not tone it down. I’m With hearing aids I have to watch it with the mute on and read the lines, the music is too loud to understand the actors.
