OK, I noticed this the other day while perusing TV show openings on YouTube uploaded by my new hero, bobcnn.
Go to about 4:30, when you get to the theme song for Today's FBI. Listen to that song.
Then listen to the main theme for one of my favoritest movies ever, Stripes.
They sound more than just a little similar. They both came out the same year, 1981. And they were both the work of Elmer Bernstein, if IMDB is to be believed. I wonder why the themes are so similar. I mean, it's like the Stripes theme turned around a little, really.
Just struck me odd; thought I'd share. You're welcome.
