That's another wonderful thing about the classics, the beautiful and at times, haunting theme music. Whether its just the opening song or the music throughout, it just speaks to you. What are some of your most memorable or favorite movie tunes that you've loved from the classic movies over the years??

I like the themes directors played for certain characters. like in Pride and Prejudice - the Greer Garson version, every character had a theme and it was absolutely perfect. From the stately Lady Catherine de Bourgh (is that how her name is spelled?) to the funny and whimsical music for Mr. Collins.

Babies are such a great way to start peopleā€¦ Tiny yawns, sleepy sighs, nursery rhymes, and lullabies.
