What's your favorite film theme music of all-time? My favorite is The Godfather. Then Starwars, and finally Indiana Jones.
Anything John Williams. I won't post them here 'cuz you know and love them, but he has made so many goddamned catchy tunes.
Here are the main themes of his I enjoyed, in preference:
- Star Wars
- Raiders March
- ET: The Extra-Terrestrial
- Lost in Space (The television series)
- Jurassic Park
Hmm, well I'm not sure if all of these are considered "theme songs" but I'm fairly certain they are played in various styles throughout their respective films.
- North by Northwest by Bernard Herman (1959) ~ theme
- Lawrence of Arabia by Maurice Jarre (1962) ~ theme
- Godzilla (Gojira) by Akira Ifukube (1954) ~ theme
- A Bridge Too Far by John Addison (1977) ~ theme
- Charade by Henry Mancini (1963) ~ theme
- Last of the Mohicans by Trevor Jones (1992) ~ theme
- Blade Runner by Vangelis (1982) ~ theme*this might just be during end titles but I always associate it as the theme song
- Superman by John Williams (1978) ~ theme
- Mission Impossible by Lalo Schifrin (1966) ~ theme *this obviously started as a TV show theme, but it's used heavily in the 4 movies too.
- Mortal Kombat by The Immortals (1994) ~ theme
Finally, there's one that isn't exclusive to any single film but it seems to show up in movies about detectives and film noir nature; Harlem Nocturne by Earl Hagen (1939).
My favorite is Mission Impossible.
