Hugo Montenegro (1925–1981) Legendary For His Western Theme Songs and  Everybody's Favorite Version Of the I Dream Of Jeannie Version With Buddy Kane

From the second season on, it was replaced by a new theme entitled "Jeannie", composed by Hugo Montenegro with lyrics by Buddy Kaye. Episode 20 and 25 used a re-recorded ending of "Jeannie" for the closing credits with new, longer drum breaks and a different closing riff. The lyrics were never used in the show.the Best Of All the Jeannie Themes In the third and fourth season of the show, another instrumental theme by Hugo Montenegro was introduced that was played during the show's campy scenes. Simply titled "Mischief", the theme would be heard mainly on outdoor locations, showing the characters attempting to do something such as Jeannie learning to drive, Major Nelson arriving up the driveway, a monkey walking around, or reactions to Doctor Bellows. This theme featured the accompaniment of a sideshow organ, a trombone, and electric bass. It was introduced in the first episode of season 3, "Fly Me to the Moon".[ Composer | Music Department | Soundtrack

Trivia:Edit

His recording of the theme song from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" reached #2 on the U.S. charts in June of 1968. In this highly stylized instrumental recording, the distinctive grunting on the soundtrack is Montenegro himself mumbling nonsensical syllables in Italian. See more trivia »
