Secret Agent, Man!

At age six, I already knew I would be an international double nought spy when I grew up.

(I had eliminated the superhero career track -- Batman already had Robin, and unfortunately I never got bitten by an atomic spider or was born with any superpowers - unless you consider an eye for mid century atomic stuff a true superpower. Some of us do!)

Spy gun Christmas present!  Look out evildoer badguys!!

Anyway, my only remaining career question was whether I would work for U.N.C.L.E, CONTROL, Her Majesty's Secret Service, or some hush hush operation so secret it didn't have a name!

Well, that career track never worked out either, at least not as far as you are aware... ;-D

So instead of being a secret agent, I have to settle for living that life vicariously through old 007 movies.  Sometimes I think I'd like to write a spy movie script.

So where am I going with this?

Well, I put together this iPhone playlist, and the more I listen to it and refine it, the more I think it would make a pretty cool soundtrack for the action- and love-packed scenes of a secret agent movie.

Did I leave out any mid century songs that you would put on this list?  Should I make another one for the Roger Moore 1970s era secret agent soundtrack?  Anyone else out there have a playlist with a theme like this?  And by the way, who was your favorite secret agent?


  1. I'd put on Walk Don't Run by the Ventures, but that's the only thing that comes to mind.

    favorite secret agent? Patrick McGoohan as Danger Man/ Number 6. Hands down.

  2. Your best shot would be the Agency to Prevent Evil, or A.P.E.--working alongside Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.

  3. Ha, you're probably right! BTW, I have the Lance Link lunchbox
