    Battle of the Film Songs

    Figured this may be a good one as you can get pretty varied great songs and scores in film. Pretty much inspired by my first nomination

    YouTube - Hellfire from The Hunchback

    Thats pretty fricken amazing IMO.

    Everyone gets 5 nominations and 5 seconds.

    Scores/songs all acceptable. Try tell us the right title and right film when nominating if you can't get a youtube link.

    On Days Like These has an outstanding effect on the whole soundtrack of The Italian Job. The song was created in the 1930s (as far as my knowledge tells me), yet it is still known by the younger generation.
    Vesper Theme is one of many things in the film of Casino Royale which truly justifies the writing of Ian Fleming. To do a review on this peice of music, is reviewing the character in the film and book "Vesper"- in that she is a secure and fascinating character of which I could write much more about. This peice also adds that remaining part of sophistication in a James Bond film yet to be repeated.
    Casino Royale theme gives as much an effect on the soundtrack of the film as On Days Like These does for The Italian Job. But the song should fairly be over-shadowed by the Vesper Theme. This song is great for the opening sequence (which is why I added it), but not for the rest of the film.
