Movie Clip Wednesday - best/favorite theme song

I'm a little late going today.  Had to pack for the 21st annual LBOH weekend and when I was done jumped right into the rack without post my pick for MCW.  Boxer is still busier than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest so this week's theme is best/favorite movie theme song.  I should have limited this to a certain decade as it was almost impossible to pick one from the thousands of movies we've all watched.  I was going to go with "Jessica's Theme" from The Man from Snowy River but then remembered it was the same music my ex-wife used to walk down the aisle.  In the words of George Costanza "Everythings tainted now!"  So I picked two. I did this because I really wanted to post "Grease" but figured it was an automatic blog jinx.  So I went to another great but underappreciated theme song from one of the top five westerns of all time The Man who shot Liberty Valance The Duke, Jimmy Stewart, Lee Marvin, some pretty hot chick from the 50's.  It doesn't get any better.  Here's Gene Pitney singing what Burt Bacharach wrote.  Hard to believe the last part. 

Here's Frank Valli because GREASE IS THE WORD!.

That's it for me loyal readers of the drivel. I'm heading to LBOH camp this afternoon and won't be back until Sunday. Look at the bright said (there's a not bright side if I'm going to be gone for 5 days?) you will be spared a really shitty write-up on this week's Top Chef. Thanks for playing. Next week's theme is movie with the worst ending, at least in your opinion. Hmmm, Back to the Future part II, Unforgiven, The Departed so many to choose from.  Enjoy the rest of your week everyone.  I hope to be sobered up and posting by this time next week.

GREASE! Great pick. I'm up with Rockey Horror.

(and thanks for taking over MCW, it's really, really appreciated.)

massive mis spelling with Rocky that I can't fix. :-)

Chickory, great choice.

Boxer, like the RHPC pick. Very original. I'll keep running things until I run out of ideas or there is mutiny.

Have a great time and we'll be here when you get back. I'm up with The Year of Living Dangerously.

I love Grease and it has a lot of great songs besides the theme song. Now I know that is definitely gay, but it has Olivia Neutron Bomb in it, so I get a pass.

I'm up at the Buzzkill with Pulp Fiction.

Happy MCW!

MRM, such a toe-tappin' bunch of songs for this MC Wednesday that I missed the beginning of Top Chef. And that *never* happens :)

Take care,

Afraid that was the one tune on the soundtrack that I never really liked. What's happening for next week?
