The most famous recording of the song was made by J. Rivers for the opening titles of the American broadcast of the British spy series Danger Man, known in the US as Secret Agent from 1964 to 1966. - Written by P.F. Sloan and S. Barri- LYRICS: There's a man who leads a life of danger To everyone he meets he stays a stranger With every move he makes another chance he takes Odds are he won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Beware of pretty faces that you find A pretty face can hide an evil mind Ah, be careful what you say Or you'll give yourself away Odds are you won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Swingin' on the Riviera one day And then layin' in the Bombay alley next day Oh no, you let the wrong word slip While kissing persuasive lips The odds are you won't live to see tomorrow Secret agent man, secret agent man They've given you a number and taken away your name Secret agent man

The song 'A Man Can Cry' on the flip side of the 45 hit 'Baby I Need Your Lovin' is very good too. Another JR song that many people may not have heard of is 'China'. I remember Johnny performing this song on The Midnight Special starring Wolfman Jack. Also, check out the song 'All Along The Watchtower 2011 LIVE @Gilford' performed by Dave Mason (posted by: saskatchawan). Dave also performed this song on The Midnight Special back in the early 80's. Dave's first hit was a good song 'We Just Disagree' (posted by: Dave MasonVEVO) if you're interested.

This song was written by Steve Barri and Phil Sloan at the request of Screen Gems Producer Lou Adler. When Johnny Rivers was signed to perform the title song to a British TV show called "Danger Man" that was being brought to America as a summer replacement, the James Bond craze had just started -- so the name was changed to "Secret Agent Man." For the TV show, they wrote just one verse and the chorus. But after the show became a hit, Rivers started getting requests to perform it during his live shows, but couldn't because the song was incomplete. So Adler turned to Barry and Sloan and asked them to write a full song, which they did. When they went into the studio to record, Hal Blaine came up with all those thundering tom tom fills and cymbal crashes. As an afterthought, Adler asked everyone in the building to come into the studio to clap and yell to simulate a live recording at the Whiskey a Go Go.

if anyone interested you can find most of the TV series on You Tube - just search the term "Danger Man" for the Brit version - not sure the US version is there as haven't checked for it - used to watch it during it's original run in the 60's while working at the US Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand

This song was actually based not on OO7 (James Bond), but a TV series that led to the motion picture industry to do James Bond movies, and that TV series was called "Danger Man."

Great show. Patrick McGoohan was suave as all hell and way more admirable than James Bond.

William Poulos because of the popularity of Johnny Rivers' song, ITC decided to use it as the theme of their popular British series, Danger Man to be syndicated in America, and retitle as Secret Agent

US release of "Danger Man" was known as "Secret Agent Man", starring Patrick McGoohan. After 3 solid seasons, and a short 4th, he suddenly "resigned" from the show, and 6mos later, "The Prisoner" appeared. Quite a legacy.
