While Oscar winner Paul Francis Webster did the lyrics to the 60’s Spider-Man theme, Bob Harris was responsible for its music. Harris is also known as the composer of Love Theme for Lolita, found in Stanley Kubrick’s 1962 Lolita, a film about a middle-aged professor who falls for the charms of a spicy teenager. Speaking of hotness, from Monclova, Mexico comes Fuego Indio with their Spanish version of Harris’ theme.

Walloping Websnappers! I’m not sure why so many Canadians are showing up on a list of Spidey theme covers, but maybe there just wasn’t that much to watch on Canadian television so everyone remembers the cool-weird TV show in re-runs in the 70’s and 80’s. At any rate, here are the Canadian clown princes of acapella doing their rendition, with that patented Früvous silliness thrown in. It really packs a punch.

Rockers Aerosmith did the 60’s Spider-Man theme song thing for the first theatrical Spidey film in 2002, and a lively tune it is, at that. Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry would later compose the theme to the 1994 Spider-Man animated show, containing some guitar riffs and lyrics that reference the 1967 original. Aerosmith’s version disappointedly never got an official music video, but trust someone on YouTube to cut one for us. Walk this way and we’ll take a look at it:

Now 50 years old, the animation in the 60’s Spider-Man TV show was pretty rough, done in a shoe-string limited animation style to save money. So a jangly Ramones cover of the theme song seems just perfectly apropos. The song showed up as a hidden track on their 1995 farewell studio album ¡Adios Amigos!, as well as the 1996 live album We’re Outta Here! Here is the awesome video for the song as it aired on MTV. Yes kids, MTV once played music videos:

Cartoon theme songs are, of course, designed to get into the heads of children quickly and have them singing it endlessly between shows, but I think you’d be pretty hard-pressed to find another one that has earwormed pop-culture so thoroughly than that of the late 1960’s Spider-Man TV show […]
