This famous theme was composed by Henry Mancini for the late 1950s television show about a private eye — played by Craig Stevens — who is well-dressed, whose hair is always in place and who loves jazz.

The prominence of the guitar riff throughout led to the tune being very popular with guitar bands. Duane Eddy had a big hit with it as well.
