This main title has been licensed a lot for Belgian radio and tv shows, most notably by the program "de pré historie" which takes a look back at music throughout the different decades. Great to finally identify it
The LP of Hawaii Five-0 was either the first or second soundtrack I ever bought as a kid. I played the thing to death. Somewhere way back I lost it and it is one of the only soundtracks I've bought in my life that I no longer have since I've tried to keep all of mine. In recent years I've been hoping to be able to replace it on CD and now I finally have the chance thanks to LK and the FSM wish granters...AND, at a very reasonable price!
"The Floater" is the cue I remember the most after the iconic theme. I've got lots of Hawaiian shirts I can choose from when listening!
Just had a listen to Mcgarrett's Theme. Those faraway grooves had the effect of causing instant relaxation. Amazing.
The track, The Floater - this reminds me of one of the episodes, where I think Mcgarrett was nabbed by the bad guy and put into a weird frogman type outfit and left immobilised in an isolation pool so he could be reprogrammed as a type of human robot via sensory deprivation. I saw this episode as a youngster and even now, many years later, the nightmarish implications from that storyline (and no, I can't remember every detail) are so dominant that it is the Five O episode that immediately comes to mind when thinking of the series.
