The Theme from "The Apartment" is so memorable that you immediately think of the film once the music starts...I was also thinking of the theme from "The Man With The Golden Arm"

The popular song "You Make Me Feel So Young" became a huge Sinatra hit from his album "Songs for Swingin' Lovers" - originally written for the film "Three Little Girls in Blue" and performed by Vera-Ellen and Charles Smith with their voices dubbed.

Next: famous Irving Berlin song which is heard throughout the movie but not sung in an Academy Award nominated film for Best Picture

I can't think of a comedic song, but I wanted to let you know that I enjoyed your memory of "Elvira Madigan".  Back to the game.

Thanks, Terrence - Back to the game - Clue: this song came from a Woody Allen movie which featured "all singing and all dancing" by a cast of performers not known for doing either.

This cantata never gets enough credit, since it's a plot device in a Hitchcock movie, but Bernard Herrmann wrote this amazing original music that sounds like a legit classical piece:

"Storm Clouds Cantata" from THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH

 

 

NEXT

another cool Bernard Herrmann theme (other thanPSYCHO) :)
