What is the name of the theme song of the movie and TV series M*A*S*H?
Suicide Is Painless
Answer: When it comes to TV theme songs, few are as famous as the title tune that graced the opening credits of the TV series M*A*S*H. “Suicide is Painless” was the theme song for both the movie and TV series. The song was written by Johnny Mandel. The lyrics were written by Mike Altman, the 14-year-old son of the film’s director, Robert Altman.
An instrumental version of the song was used as the theme for the TV series. The young Altman went on to make millions in royalties off the song, while his dad was paid just $70,000 for directing the film.
