I can't name that tune. But...

It did give me an overpowering urge to buy a mint green convertible, open a detective agency in California and solve crimes perpetrated on surfers. I'd be assisted by an eccentric array of funky acquaintances and an uptight-but-okay friend who works the 'surfer crime' desk at City Police.

A notable number of musical personalities would involve themselves in each case that came my way, for reasons that are never explained. The mint green convertible would have a guitar amp in the back seat connected to the stereo. The secretary in my detective agency would frequently wear pink leather catsuits and metallic purple wigs, a la Gerry Anderson's UFO.

I'd usually be behind on my bills.

Sounds like the track to Starsky and Hutch

I like Rik's take on the tune, but I hear definite broader influences of that genre including Mission Impossible and The Man From U.N.C.L.E., among others. In other words, a 1960s adventure tune awaiting its own series. Wink
