Ok, so it’s no big surprise to those who know me that I’m a big fan of the original Hawaii Five-0 television show. So a new version of the television series has been out for a few seasons now. So, what about this new version? What do we at FreeRingtonesFYI.com think of the remake? Of course it helps that every scene in the Hawaii 5-O 2010 reboot is spectacular. Yup, and I’ve been to most of the spots they show in Honolulu. Certainly haven’t been to the really local areas but I have stayed at the Hilton Hotels which they always seem to feature in the show!
Anyway, my wife has been going on about how I should post a Hawaii Five-0 ringtone. Of course that’s a great idea given all the other classic television show ringtones we’ve posted in the past. But the problem with Hawaii 5-0 was that I was torn between the original theme versus the new one. The original Hawaii Five-0 theme was composed and arranged by Morton Stevens who also scored a few of the episode music. Now while the new one is pretty much the same, the instruments and production quality have been upgraded and there is a bit of freshness to it. So given Free Ringtones FYI audience is a newer bunch, I figured let’s do a Hawaii Five-0 2010 theme ringtone. If folks love it then we can throw up the original theme in a ringtone format.
For those are not aware, Hawaii Five-0 2010 debuted on CBS, the same network that aired the original version of the television show. Like the original version, it follows an elite state police unit/task force set up to fight crime in the state of Hawaii though most of the scenes are in Honolulu. It premiered on Monday, September 20, 2010, 42 years to the date from the premiere of the original show, September 20, 1968. On October 21, 2010, CBS announced that Hawaii Five-0 had been given a full season order of 24 episodes.
So now you know that Hawaii Five-0 2010 is a CBS reboot of the popular television show. The new show stars Alex O’Loughlin who plays Steve McGarrett, Daniel Dae Kim who is reincarnated as Chin Ho Kelly (originally play Kam Fong) then Scott Caan who poses as Danny ‘Danno’ Williams. Finally, a slight departure from the original but my favorite of course is Grace Park who plays Kono. Kono basically gets a sex change since the original Kono was a guy played by Zulu (beach boy and DJ back in the days.)
Here’s our homage to Grace Park
Hawaii 5-0 Television Theme 2010 (1.17MB / MP3 ringtone): The new ringtone theme from Hawaii 5-0 is redone with studio musicians with a few of them from the original line-up back in 1968. The Hawaii 5-0 ringtone is perfect as it’s fast paced, upbeat and tense. The new version was shortened to 30 seconds!
