first of all if this goes in the music forum please move....


What are some of the music themes that will evoke a strong emotion in you? Now I dont mean something that you've seen in the last coupple of months either. There are movies however that if you play the theme song almost ANYone can say I know that song! For me the list is:

Star Wars main theme
JAWS
Imperial March ( Vader )
Halloween
Friday the 13th
Magnificient Seven
Wizard of Oz
Close Encounters
Gone With the wind
ET

remember to please list ones that the majority of the population will recgonize not just your certain age group. wink

ET- by John Williams, actually I'm listening that some in this moment messed
You are right once I heard that song I know from where it comes and I even the remember almost the whole movie by memory stick out tongue

Others that I think have the same effect:
Superman
Indiana Jones
Forrest Gump
The Godfather? messed
Titanic - My Heart Will Go On
The Bodyguard- that song by Whitney Houston

finti
Star Wars, Jaws, Warriors and James Bond

Lord_Andres
The Good The Bad And The Ugly, For A Few Dollars More, Rocky(Gonna Fly Now and Eye Of The Tiger) LOTR, Braveheart

I like Star Wars theme music, especially the new song in the Attack of the Clones....

the most memorable music that came to my mind first was jaws (i was scared of my kiddie pool after that movie), then star wars (main theme, duel of the fates, vader's theme), superman, batman, james bond, indiana jones.

Jedi Priestess
outside of Rocky and LOTR I dont know any of these. AND I cant tell you what Warriors OR Forrest Gump sounds like for the life of me.

remember it needs to be a song the majority of the public knows. Am I the only one who doesnt remember these movies theme songs?


Sheesh how could I have forgotten to mention The Godfather & Indiana Jones messed

cgtuna21
Lord of the Rings
Star Wars
Jaws
Braveheart
Jurassic Park
Rocky
The Godfather
Scarface

Lord Soth
The Star Wars theme
Halloween theme (who DOESN'T know what this is?!?)

BackFire
Star Wars, Clockwork Orange ,LOTR, Requiem for a Dream, Indiana Jones, Jaws, Braveheart, Reservoir Dogs (the song that's playing when he cuts the dudes ear off), Terminator, 2001: A Space Oddesy, Nightmare on Elmstreed, Hallween, Friday the 13th, Killer Klowns from outerspace, Scarface, Psycho, Godfather, American Beauty, Rocky, Platoon, WestSide Story

Myth
I guarantee that even though you don't know what the songs come from, that you would recognize the songs. Especially The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly theme. Even if people don't know where it comes from, they know the song.

mc pee pants
yup... they use the good, the bad, and the ugly theme every time rivals face off... especially a cowboy high noon duel.

Elektra_lover

Here are some worthy nominations:

Superman
Platoon
Conan The Barbarian

Probably Mission Impossible and Rocky.

When I was a kid I used to confuse the theme songs of Star Wars and Superman, though.

trav6612
star wars trilogy music, indiana jones, braveheart, rocky, rudy, last of the mohicans, LOTR, those are mine

forumcrew
i think something like the good the bad and the ugly is stretching it.. a lot of people would not know what that is same with like pulp fiction.. star wars, rocky, and james bond are prolly about the top 3 id think
