Have you noticed just how few of the major blockbusters we see in the movies these days have a ‘theme song’ associated with them?
Some, such as the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings series had nice melodies that we could hum or whistle, some like Shrek 1 have soundtracks filled with old songs that we can remember… but how many films these days have actual songs in the manner of, say, the Bond songs like ‘Goldfinger’, ‘You only live twice’, From Russia With Love etc?
Lots of films had really memorable themes that became hits in their own right. Remember “The Harry Lime Theme”, “Lara’s Theme” and the rest?
When we heard those tunes it took you straight back to the film bringing back all sorts of memories. I actually miss them. What happened? Where did they go?
