Pittsburgh Wedding DJ | DJ Rockin Steve - 200+ Best Movie Themes Music List | Top Soundtrack Movie Themes
  • 200+ Best Movie Themes Music List | Top Soundtrack Movie Themes

    We have assembled for you 200+ best movie themes music list, the best of all time. Sounds that instantly make you recall the movie from which they were from. The top soundtrack movie themes are a perfect way to spice up your dinner time and give your wedding guests something to do as they enjoy their entree'.

    Why have your invitees listen to some of the same music you tend to hear at other weddings and functions. By playing some of these great movie classic tunes you can create a friendly challenge among your friends and family. A sort of I can name the movie before you. It can be individual, couples or by table.

    We have done this at various times for our brides and grooms who want something different for their wedding day. Incorporate some fun into an otherwise average dinner hour. This strikes up good conversation among all in the room as they recall their favorite scenes from some of the top movies of all time.

    The guests are not the only ones who will have a great time with this, the bridal party will get into it will much enthusiasm. Possible the bride and groom vs. the wedding party. Bridesmaids against the groomsmen. Who knows, it will just evolve into an hour or possible 45 minutes of good fun and wonderful conversation.

    Typically we would only play about three minutes from each movie theme. Some start at the beginning while some have been edited to the more familiar parts. From classic love themes, action packed hits, science fiction, comedy and even some emmy winning war movies.

    I like to start off with a few easy movie themes then move into some of the more difficult tunes. Those "I know this movie but what's the title" themes. Imagine playing the theme to the all time mega hit "Jaws" just as the guests are cutting into their beef or chicken. You will have your family and friends having the time of their lives and the wedding reception or dinner party has just begun.

    Some of our favorites are the theme from Jurassic Park, E.T., Bridge On The River Kwi, Kelly's Heroes, the Bourne Identity and even Die Hard featuring Bruce Willis. Older treasured hits like the theme from West Side Story or Dr. Zhivago or even Flashdance. Think about the expression on everyones face if the soundtrack from Dueling Banjo's is played. Gulp!

    Movies that the majority of everyone has seen at least once, and for some of us so many times that we have the DVD or Blue Ray in our collection.

    Look over the following list of great soundtracks and see which are your favorites. To keep things really fresh and exciting remember that there are many movie themes that are popular songs. Songs that we sing to or hum along in our cars or at the office. Music specifically written and recorded for movies that we may not realize it.

    Such songs include Misirlou by Dick Dale and the Del-Tones from 1963. It was a Beach Boy inspired song for the "Surfin' U.S.A." album. This song was used in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino film "Pulp Fiction". The sound was sampled in the Black Eyed Peas song "Pump It" and used in The made for TV show "Mad Men".

    Recall the Eddie Murphy scene in "Beverly Hills Cop". Axel Foley was being tossed back and forth in the back of a semi tractor trailer loaded with stolen cartons of cigarettes as the criminals drove through the streets destroying everything in their path. The song, "Neutron Dance" by the"Pointer Sisters". Glenn Fry sang the opening song of the movie, "The Heat Is On".

    That Pointer Sisters song wasn't written specifically for the movie but became instilled in our minds. Every time that song is played I think of that scene. Your guests will do the same. By incorporating some popular hits used as the opening theme you can keep the theme from becoming stale over time.

    Again I would recommend sticking with this for under an hour. I like to start off with the instrumental movie hits then segue into some of the popular sing-a-long songs. We are still keeping within the movie theme but it starts to change over to some more toe tapping singing along favorites.

    Browse through the list and pick out some of your favorite top 20 or so movie classic themes and play them at your wedding or dinner party. See how many of your guests can name the movie title. This also works great as a party contest. Assemble groups and take turn guessing the title of the film classics. Good Luck.

    Arranged alphabetically and include the main title themes and popular hits from the movies. Song titles and years released in parentheses, movie year released follows.
