After reading Ad Lib’s very witty piece about Republican Academy Nominations for film, I thought this would be be a good time to have
a music thread of theme songs and soundtracks from your favorite movies and television series.
There is quite a lot to choose from, so pick your favorites, and have some fun. And don’t forget to smile while doing so! 😉
Soundtrack The Departed – I’m Shipping Up To Boston – Dropkick Murphys
Cavatina (Theme from ‘The Deer Hunter’)
The Blues Brothers (6/9) Movie CLIP – Everybody Needs Somebody
Heisenberg Song Breaking Bad(English Subs)
I Dream of Jeannie
FORBIDDEN PLANET Soundtrack
Still one of the all time best sci-fy movies ever made. Way ahead of it’s time.
The Greatest American Hero
This was hilarious, because he didn’t know how to land. 🙂
Then Came Bronson – “… Well, hang in there”
THE IMMORTAL (1970)
The Day the Earth Stood Still (Original)
Ah yes! It’s funny, I just rewatched this film a few days ago. As good as ever, and one of the most intelligent “sci-fy,” movies ever made. Who could ever forget Klaatu and Gort, the super powerful robot capable of destroying the world. Patricia Neil and Michael Rennie were really good in this.
Still love this movie and IMO, way better than the remake.
I haven’t seen the remake, and from what I’ve heard, I have no desire to. Can’t improve upon perfection, regardless of special effects and new film techniques.
Wow, I’ve never heard of this series before. I wonder how many TV shows, or pilots were made that didn’t see much air time.
KT, I started to challenge your memory of this series. I loved it when it first aired. It was soooo high tech 😀
Only 12 episodes aired, but 13 were made. So I guess I was the only person who liked the show. If you get a chance, check out an episode on Youtube.
THE THEMES FROM U.N.C.L.E.
The Avengers TV Intro
The Invaders (1967)
One of her first.
Talented and pretty, too.
I’m smitten by Doris Day, sorry.
Glass bottom boat theme.
I can’t believe we have not done this one. Gene Kelly.
There’ve been a lot of great TV picks on this thread, I’ve been focused mostly on films so here’s a tv pick, who remembers this one?
And there was the unofficial prequel to The Prisoner…
Secret Agent Man
Yeah, he made a great secret agent.
This was a great series. Way ahead of it’s time I believe.
Michael Hoenig – Max Headroom Theme
