Following on from the classical music thread, in which Lancaster posted a film theme tune, I thought this an appropriate idea.

Here is one of my favourites - view external link (//www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9olZZIoOM8)

And one more if I may.

'The Rider Song' by Nick Cave : not the actual theme tune but written for and featured in the film 'The Proposition.'

Brilliant, IMHO. :) - view external link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAQDJ1uaX0w)

Good shout doug. Even more memorable from that stunningly weird film is the use of Roy Orbison's In Dreams...truly fantastic.

Brilliant Stones track used for opening credits of the classic anti-Vietnam war film 'Coming Home', with the lovely young Jane Fonda.
I've never listened to this song since without remembering the film.

Great thread ! - view external link (youtu.be/xohOBku3yeU)
