Theme from Mission: Impossible: Music written by Lalo Schifrin. Produced and arranged by Larry Mullen and David Beal. Engineered by David Beal and Dan Gellert. Mixed by Mark 'Spike' Stent. Assisted by Adam Brown. String arrangement by Craig Armstrong. Percussion by Bashiri Johnson.

OTHER NOTES
This soundtrack isn't a true soundtrack as many would consider.  Only five of the fifteen songs actually appear in the movie. This included the three by Elfman, the first song by Adam and Larry, and the song by the Cranberries. Instead it is a collection of music "inspired" by the film.

The songs contributed by Larry and Adam were recorded during a break from U2 in 1995. The song was released as a single and was a hit in the summer of 1996. Larry and Adam didn't participate in the soundtrack to the sequel of the movie.
