Whats your favorite movie theme song? i.e. The Forrest Gump Theme...or Jurrasic Park...or another one of my favorites..Chariots of Fire.

Movie themes actually relax me when i need relaxing...the sound of John Williams and Henry Mancini...just awesome!

Whats yours??

all of Vangelis's theme tunes are good, he also did the 1942 and the bladerunner soundtrack (i have to praise my people!)

First and foremost, Bernard Herrmann's score for Taxi Driver. The whole thing because the theme is altered throughout different stages of Travis's slow spiraling into a psychotic criminal. He also did the score for Psycho and The Day The Earth Stood Still. The reason you hear strings in violent sequences is because of him; the reason you hear theremins during UFO sequences is because of him too. The man is genius. Only Ennio Morricone can top him, but this is by sheer output alone since Morricone didn't mind composing for low-budget movies with bad storylines. Herrmann would look at a script and immediately tell the director he wouldn't compose for a crappy movie.

I liked Mick Jagger's song that was on the updated version of 'Alfie'.

What´s that song? And you mean there is a new version of "Alfie"?

I vote for "Mrs. Robinson"- S&G (The Graduate)

"Everybody´s talking"- Nilsson (Midnight Cowboy)

"Raindroks keep falling on my head"- B-J-Thomas (Butch Cassidy)

Grease soundtrack.

"You only live twice"- Nancy Sinatra? (same movie) music by John Barry

MUSICAL INTERLUDE:

Old Habits Die Hard ~~ Mick Jagger

"I thought I shook myself free

You see I bounce back quicker than most

But i'm half delirious, Is too mysterious

You walk through my walls like a ghost

And I take everyday at a time

I'm as proud as a Lion in his Lair

Now there's no denying it, a note to crying it

Your all tangled up in my head

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Harder than November rain

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Hard enough to feel the pain

We haven't spoken in months

You see i've been counting the days

I dream of such inanities, such insanities

I'm lost like a kid in a maze

But i've never taken your calls

you see,I put block on my phone

I act like an addict, i just got to have it

I can never just leave it alone

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Harder than November rain

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Hard enough to feel the pain

And I can't give you up

Can't leave you alone

And its so hard, so hard

And hard enough to feel the pain

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Harder than November rain

Old habits die hard

Old soldiers just fade away

Old habits die hard

Hard enough to feel the pain"

Thankyou Sammy for the music. Yeah, Edna there is an updated version of 'Alfie' out, starring Jude Law. And I think they replace the London setting with a New York one. Not 100% sure.
