I love Adele's voice, NW! And she's got a classic sound that I imagine you'd liken to some of the older singers of your preferred era. That is an especially good song of hers for sure!

So beautiful. We lost a great songwriter with Marvin Hamlish's passing in 2012.

A couple of movies with entire soundtracks that I absolutely love:
  • Into the Wild with soundtrack of the same name by Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam fame
  • HighLander with much of the soundtrack on Queen's A Kind of Magic album

+1 on this one.

My DH was watching the Al Pacino movie Dog Day Afternoon last night while I was fooling around with Quicken, and I had to stop and go in there to listen when I heard a great old song playing, Amoreena, from a favorite album of Elton John's, Tumbleweed Connection. I have it on vinyl and haven't played it in years.

Not exactly romantic-style music, but I love listening to the opening theme number of "The Good the Bad and the Ugly." "For a Few Dollars More" also has a great theme song.

The soundtrack for Grosse Point Blank was great. The Pogues, The Violent Femmes, The Clash, etc. The movie itself was okay.

+1 for Highlander. I had no idea before I saw it who Queen was. Found out in a hurry.

It's interesting how sometimes we would notice or remember a piece of music in a movie even if that piece is not the theme music, yet sometimes not.

For example, I have watched this movie, and I also knew the following famous song by Edith Piaf (I have linked this song a couple of times here), yet did not notice when this song was played in this movie!

Yes, I know what you mean. The song is played when they go to sleep/ dream state... see the part inside the train, one of the guys put on a headphone.. the song starts playing and segments of the movie plays the song ever so softly.
