I know we all have our favourite film title theme songs. I have a fair few i.e Shirley Bassey's " Goldfinger" and " Diamonds Are Forever " just to name two.
However if i had to choose just one then this would be my choice. " Up The Junction " by Manfred Mann



Over to you.

My favourite song isn't in the title but it still means much to me. It's from the film The Killing Fields and it's the part when Dith Pran is reunited with his friend Sydney Schanberg at the end. Just as they are about to meet, you can hear Imagine by John Lennon being played on a radio. As they meet again, the song becomes louder and they see each other just as the the song reaches another verse. I found that particular moment to be quite emotional and it never fails to steal all the masculinity held in my body. I love the film and that part near the end.

Think I need to go punch a wall and spit on the floor now lol.

Totally forgot about Vangelis in Blade Runner. Although it's not my favourite, it certainly deserves to be acknowledged and thanks for the reminder. Rumour has it, Harrison Ford will be reprising his role in the upcoming sequel next year. Hopefully, they will do it some justice.

I guess my favourite is Hans Zimmer's "you're so cool" from the film True Romance:



But the fact is that not many films even have signature tunes anymore, do they.

Another favourite, "The Living Daylights" by AHA.

Another tune, from a wonderful film...

Maurice Jarre's theme for Jacob's ladder:



You really have to see the film to get the tune I guess. It reminds me of an innocent Ludovico Einaudi. Speaking of Einaudi:

Meh, Imo, nothing tops the 80's.

Another Vangelis or two, Chariots of Fire and The Year of Living Dangerously.
