I HEARD THEM THEN. I HEAR THEM NOW.
AREN’T THEY UNFORGETTABLE!
There are so many things which carry on with us from our childhood to our youth — movies, music and famous television series are just few of them. Sometimes we take the songs while the unforgettable scenes or maybe just the background score of the movie also impact us with élan. Let me take you to some of the themes that have distinctly stood out all these years, and remain tall even today.
There are some UNFORGETTABLE ONES LIKE –
I START WITH BOND JAMES BOND AGENT 007:
From ‘Dr.No’ (1962) to ‘QUANTUM OF SOLACE’ (2008) THE BOND HAS RULED.
Be it Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan or the rugged Daniel Craig they have all stumped us all these years. The one movie in which we wait to see the “Sexy Bond Woman” and drool over her.
The MI THEME, OH WHO CAN FORGET THIS:
Tom Cruise as Agent Ethan Hunt of the IMF was so outstanding in the whole series of the sequels.
THE TOM AND JERRY SHOW:
Gosh this has been there since I can remember and even now is the most popular cartoon with kids and adults both. And even now everyone loves Tom & Jerry show.
THE STAR WARS THEME:
How we waited for the sequels to come up! The famous American epic space opera film series by ‘George Lucas.
The series of Star Wars follows the life of a young slave named Anakin Skywalker who is discovered by the Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn, who believes him to be the “Chosen One” foretold by Jediprophecy to bring balance to the Force. The Jedi Council, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Sith Lord Darth Maul and so many more. Do they ring a bell?
THE STAR TREK SERIES:
Ahh Dr.Spock and The Captain James Kirk kept me on the edge of my seat. The first science fiction series of its kind. The story of the crew of the ‘Starship Enterprise’ in the galaxies. What a breakthrough it was !!!
The best is the PINK PANTHER theme:
Oh ever so adorable is he. He wlks and the music goes tanatana tanananaaaaaa! Brilliant.
American sports drama film directed by John G. Avildsen and both written by and starring Sylvester Stallone. It tells the rags to riches American Dream story of Rocky Balboa
AND HOW CAN I FORGET THIS ONE FROM TOP GUN:
Tom Cruise at his best as he races down the tarmac singing ‘Take my breath away’…And who did not wear jackets similar to his those days! How I still swoon and drool over him.
Now there are so many more but I will continue the series in the sequel coming up soon…
Did you also grow up listening and watching these?
Enjoy these till I come up with more music to my ears with a hot cuppa of coffee.
