Not surprisingly, a British poll voted that the movie 'Star Wars' had the best theme music of any movie of all time, according to the BBC. The theme to 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly' was second. I can't believe 'Rocky' wasn't on the list (either for 'Gonna Fly Now' or 'Going The Distance'), but maybe Brits don't hold that movie in the same high regard we Yanks do. You can see the full list by clicking here.

Movie themes are really long lasting; I don't remember much of the action in '2001: A Space Odyssey', but, boy I remember the theme music. I was trying to think of more recent movies that had exceptional theme music, but all I could think of were 'Skyfall' by Adele for the Bond movie of the same name, and 'You've Got Friend In Me' from the 'Toy Story' movies.
