I assume you have it start from the point of brass and not with the string intro.

Main Theme From Dr. Zhivago - no, not Lara's Theme but what is stunningly played at the very beginning. Truly haunting.

Re: Favorite movie theme?

It's hard to choose. I have many favorites: Superman, Imperial March from Star Wars, Godfather, Untouchables (strength), bunch from 2001, Migrations form Eyes Wide Shut, bathtub from the Shining, Wait for me from Blade Runner.

Halloween opening theme is my current favorite, I guess. Also like Laurie's theme and Halloween V finale.

Eighteen posts and nobody's brought up Danny Elfman's Batman theme yet.

Shame on all of you.

I like a lot of Bond themes, but I love this theme. This theme is just flat out cool.

Probably my favorite as well. I'm going to cheat and say it's my other favorite.

Good picks overall. But I still perfer the instrumental version for that scene.

Kung Fu movies of the 70's sampled the hell out of that song. Especially Shaw Bros films.
