    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    Splendor In the Grass is the one that always gets me as many times as I've heard it. It so heartbreakingly beautiful and sets the tone, you know this film will be a heartbreaker when you hear that music.

    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    Another one of Elmer Bernstein's great film theme songs that works so perfectly with the film is The World of Henry Orient. The theme song is light and playful while we see a school bus full of young teens on their way to school on a bright, breezy, lovely fall day in NYC. The whole score works so well. While Val and Marianne are exploring NYC, the music is also light and playful and free but the score is also serious and heartbreaking when Val discovers her mother is cheating on her father and she walks alone thru Central Park while the ground is covered in snow and the day is gray. Perfect combination of theme music and score and film.

    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    Another theme song that I think fits the film perfectly is the brilliant Elmer Bernstein's The Man With The Golden Arm. It's intense and chaotic and represents the struggles of a drug addict. The grunginess of Frankie's neighborhood and the nightlife he was part of. Just a great theme song that perfectly captures the mood of the film.

    Do You Know Me?

    Thanks Miles This actor had a long career. He was a regular on a long running popular tv series in the classic timeframe. He was a co-star in another hit series in the same decade. From the 50's on and several more decades, we watched him in many tv shows. He also had important roles in some famous films in between his tv appearances. Actor, name some of his tv shows and films ????????

    Theme Songs That Fit A Movie or TV Show Perfectly

    Absolutely MissW. Mad Men is probably one of if not my favorite tv shows ever and the theme song fit the show so perfectly. Your post bears repeating about the theme song. It does have "mournful, vaguely disturbing quality that completely embodied the show and it's themes."

    Retro Trivia

    Given the first clue that I gave, Shelley fits. She's not the one I was asking about, however, since she fits that clue the thread is yours Bagels.

    HA! The Green Acres theme and the Rawhide theme run thru my mind too! The Green Acres opening is a hoot anyway, Lisa on her penthouse balconey and Eddie with his pitch fork with that theme song
