Favorite Movie Theme Music

It's a rainy Saturday morning and we haven't had one of these threads for a while. I ran across this while searching for something on YouTube. I hadn't heard it in a long time and had forgotten how good it was.

This is the best version of my favorite:

My favorites recently are all in Love Actually--the Portugese Love Theme and the Glasgow Love Theme, in particular, but there are lots of songs and musicians threading through the film from the Beach Boys to Kelly Clarkson.

Gosh, anything by Maurice Jarre, but particularly this one, from back when movies had overtures.

Here's a whole boatload of them led by one of the masters of movie music - John Williams

Can't find a clip at the moment, but I loved the score to "Oh brother, wherefore art thou?"

I've posted this before for another reason. Still consider this the definitive movie theme music.



Hope your rain clears up. (Note the tie in to the scene in the movie opening credits.)

Nice tie-in and a great theme song for one of my favorite movies ("Knock it off with them negative waves!").

We got three inches this AM and that brings our total over the past three days to 6 inches. Some serious flash floods in the area as a place just south of here got 13 inches yesterday and more today. Sure makes me glad I built on a hill...

Just listened to it all the way through. I have it on a Telarc CD -- Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops named Round-Up.

Have quite a bit of music. Like to do my listening when alone in the house, no heat or air running, sitting on the floor about 10 feet from the speakers with my ears just below the elevation of the tweeters. Don't listen much but when I do I concentrate on it.

Ah, I was just about to post this one. Classic.

The local cable channel (TCM?) is having a Clint Eastwood movie festival this month & next. I'm trying to explain the concept of "spaghetti Western" to a very skeptical teen who can't believe that Clint was ever younger than about 130 years...

I have two favorites of all time and have posted these before on another thread. The first is "The John Dunbar Theme" from Dances With Wolves and the second is "Unchained Melody", the theme song from Ghost. The latest version I heard is just great and it's by the great tenor voices Il Divo. If you haven't heard this, check it out.

I don't remember the movie, but I'll bet it was a gas...
