Theme Songs That Made The Movie
« on: January 26, 2014, 07:37:08 AM »
That are memorable, but not so much the movie.

It's funny, I personally remember this theme well, even find myself whistling it on occasion, but I'll be damned if I can remember much about the movie.

Any theme songs that stick in your mind, but the movie wasn't all that memorable?

Good picks, especially Bridge Over the River Kwai, the tune is still on my mind decades later.

Another master practitioner of the "big sound" was Dimitri Tiomkin....

When this song first hit theaters --- and that massive ship first showed on-screen, our theme music tastes changed forever....

What about Lawrence of Arabia or Dr. Zhivago????

You're evidently a Maurice Jarre fan, mentioning his two sole hits.

"Lara's Theme" (aka "Somewhere My Love") wasn't too bad, if you like musical treacle, but the Arab propaganda with Peter O'Toole was unmemorable for its soundtrack.
