1967 Spider-Man TV Music Incorporated Into “Homecoming” Theme

We’ve gone through 18 different 60’s Spidey themes over the last 18 days, and as a bonus to celebrate today’s premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, here is a video showing how Michael Giacchino, music composer of the latest Spidey film, has actually incorporated the 60’s theme into the movie’s music. I think it’s a fitting tribute to one of the most endearing and enduring parts of Spider-Man history:

Here Comes the Spider-Man Theme Covers: Chad Gendron

These have been 18 covers of the 1967 Spider-Man TV show, spread across 18 glorious days. This is Day 18, and I do believe we’ve left the best for last.

And now, from Nerdstalking’s own Chad Gendron, a version of the 60’s Spidey theme done in his own, inimitable style. I think you’ll agree that Chad really lays bare the true ramifications of having radioactive blood. See you tomorrow for the bonus round, to commemorate the premiere day of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Lunatic mercenary Deadpool gets his very own 60’s TV show opening, by way of hijacking Spidey’s theme. It’s a fine job by the crew at Studio Bombshell:

A very out-there, electro-swing remix of the 60’s theme that sounds really good. It’s especially interesting what’s been done with the original voices:

Swinging in on Day 1 was: Michael Bublé
Swinging in on Day 2 was: The Ramones

What the… how the heck did this get on here? I don’t even know…
(Actually, it’s from the Spider-Man TV show produced by vaunted Japanese studio Toei, airing in Japan between 1978 and 1979. One good thing about the show, which Stan Lee himself commented on: they had the Spider-Man actor literally scurrying up and down the sides of real buildings.)

The focus in these posts has been on the 60’s Spider-Man theme song, and the band featured in this one certainly did a cover of that. But I think today I’ll post something a little different from them: it’s a cover of the interstitial music heard on the show, which anyone who watched it regularly would instantly recognize. It kind of makes me think of A Charlie Brown Christmas. That holiday perennial is eternally remembered, but mostly for the music featured within. I feel the 1967 Spider-Man enjoys the same phenomena.

So, the band is a Winnipeg outfit called Volume, their 2002 album is called The Amazing Spider-Band, and this particular piece is titled Tribute to Spider-Man:

Swinging in on Day 1 was: Michael Bublé
Swinging in on Day 2 was: The Ramones

If Spidey takes one wrong step off a ledge, he’s heading for the ground in a big hurry. And that, my fine-feathered friends, is my segue into this Dubstep version of the 1967 Spider-Man TV show theme song, from AmazingGamer.

Here we have MyNewSoundtrack’s peppy 8-bit version of Spidey’s theme, which would feel at home blasting out of the family TV via a Nintendo game in 1992:

An electro-funk version of the Spidey theme from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma band The Flaming Lips. It was featured as a bonus track on the official soundtrack for Spider-Man 3, released in 2007:

This is an orchestrated mix of the 60’s and 90’s Spidey TV show themes. In the video, it is cut against the opening credits of the first Spider-Man film, and it works amazingly well:

Swinging in on Day 1 was: Michael Bublé
Swinging in on Day 2 was: The Ramones
Swinging in on Day 3 was: Aerosmith
Swinging in on Day 4 was: Moxy Früvous

18 days, 18 goddamn glorious 1967 Spider-Man TV show theme song covers! Because a spider has 8 legs, and if you take the 1 away from 18 you get 8! Here’s Day 8. That’s right! Same as the number of a spider’s legs!

This is a delightful acapella version of the theme, by the good folks at The Warp Zone. Along with sounding good, the video also has the benefit of the singers being dressed as a range of characters associated with Spider-Man. Enjoy:

Swinging in on Day 1 was: Michael Bublé
Swinging in on Day 2 was: The Ramones
Swinging in on Day 3 was: Aerosmith

18 days, 18 goddamn glorious 1967 Spider-Man TV show theme song covers! Because a spider has 8 legs, and if you take the 1 away from 18 you get 8! Here’s Day 7:

I’m sure that, in his swingin’ 60’s cartoon, Spider-Man came across his share of large, black, bowling-ball-shaped bombs with large fizzing fuses on the top. So a 1997 Bomberman 64 ad parodying the theme song isn’t too much of a stretch. It’s not a cover, per se, but I got a bang out of it. Again, I’ll show myself the door.

Swinging in on Day 1 was: Michael Bublé
Swinging in on Day 2 was: The Ramones
Swinging in on Day 3 was: Aerosmith
Swinging in on Day 4 was: Moxy Früvous
