Spider-Man Theme Song (81)

Although not as memorable as some of Spidey's other theme songs, the theme to the 1981 solo Spider-Man series does have a catchy tune and a good montage of clips from the series.

The theme was composed by Johnny Douglas, an English composer who composed and performed his original music since the age of thirteen. After scoring and conduction dozens of albums, Douglas moved to the area of television, providing music for such classic 80s shows as Spider-Man, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, Dungeons & Dragons, Incredible Hulk, Transformers and G.I.Joe.

While the series features classic Spider-Man villains like Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Sandman and Chameleon, the theme song doesn't show us any of them except for a brief glimpse of the Green Goblin. Instead, small time villains such as the Gadgeteer and Zarko are shown alongside Doctor Doom who, despite his important role in the series, isn't a Spider-Man villain.
