Victor Young, Peggy Lee, in Johnny Guitar.

Sarah Brightman sings beautifully:

Morricone: The Mission and La Califfa

Goldsmith: No one like you (from Powder?)

Horner: IL Mio Cuore VA (love theme from Titanic)


I'm a big Sarah Brightman fan. Most of her previous cds/dvds are fantastic. He new cd, Dreamchaser, is a real piece of junk. Just dreadful. Consider yourself warned.

I’ve been reasonably familiar with a lot of Brightman’s work for many years, mainly as a result of being a fan of Lloyd Webber. I’ve never been overly convinced about her voice, I’ve always found it a bit thin and stretched. Some of her solo stuff I haven’t been overly impressed with. However I like the album of Lloyd Webber songs she recorded several years ago (‘Surrender’, I think it’s called).

Hi Thomas, You have to be careful with Sarah Brightman. I love "some" of her songs. The cds in the 90s called Dive and Fly are awful. I like it when she soars in classical and symphonic pop, Euro Pop, light opera, classical crossover etc. Check out on you tube her "Symphony in Vienna" concert dvd. It's my favorite but even here there are a few songs best avoided.

She did 3 Andrew Lloyd Webber cds, the best being "Surrender" which I think was only issued in Europe but I got it as an import. And of course Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera.

My heart is in golden age film scores. I found Sarah B. a nice change. Another U.K. singer I like is soprano Katherine Jenkins. Both gals look hot, a nice bonus! smile

Although many songs from the ROAD MOVIES in the 40's were popular in their day from those BING CROSBY , BOB HOPE films. By far the most successful song series would be the JAMES BOND FILMS. What would a James Bond film be without a theme song, usually during opening credits but not always, Here they are, a series where JOHN BARRY, will always be the king, but other film composers took their shot at it.-DR NO- 62-didn't have one-FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE- 63-BARRY- MATT MONRO-GOLDFINGER-64-BARRY- SHIRLEY BASSEY-THUNDERBALL-65- BARRY- TOM JONES-YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE-67- BARRY- NANCY SINATRA-ON HER MAJESTY SECRET SERVICE-69-BARRY-LOUIE ARMSTRONG-DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER-71-BARRY- SHIRLEY BASSEY- LIVE AND LET DIE-72-WINGS-THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN-74- BARRY- LULU-THE SPY WHO LOVED ME-77- HAMLISCH-CARLY SIMON-MOONRAKER-79- BARRY- SHIRLEY BASSEY-FOR YOUR EYES ONLY-80- CONTI- SHEENA EASTEN-OCTUPUSSY-83-BARRY- RITA COOLIDGE-NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN-83-LEGRAND-A VIEW TO KILL-85-BARRY- DURAN DURAN-THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS-86-BARRY-A-HA- PRETENDERS-LICENSED TO KILL-89-KAMEN-GLADYS KNIGHT-GOLDEN EYE-95-ERIC SERRIA- TINA TURNER-TOMORROW NEVER DIES-97-SHERYL CROW-WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH-99-BARRY- GARBAGE-DIE ANOTHER DAY-02- ARNOLD- MADONNA-CASINO ROYALE-06- ARNOLD-CHRIS CORNELL-QUANTUM OF SOLACE-08-ARNOLD-ALICIA KEYS-SKYFALL-12-NEWMAN-ADELE

TO PFK- PEGGY LEE, fine singer, also did a nice version of LITTLE BOY BLUE- from PIECES OF DREAMS-70-MICHEL LEGRAND

Sombody mention Peggy Lee? At least two people. Is that a quorum? Peggy Lee also sang the North/Brooks song from THE RACERS, called "I Belong To You".

Of course, she recorded a number of other movie songs on LP and personally I think that her version of "The Shadow Of Your Smile" by Mr. Mandel, is close to the best ever done.

Oops, almost forgot, she had something to do with LADY AND THE TRAMP if I remember rightly.

Yes, Peggy Lee wrote some of the songs for Lady and the Tramp. Had an LP of it, not sure if I still have it. Peggy had a great respect for Victor Young and I think he worked on a few of her Decca LPs in the 50s. I had a LP by Peggy in the 60s and she sang a few of his songs and praised him in the liner notes. I thought Peggy looked beautiful in the 1950s, along with Julie London! smile

I just checked my LPs. Yes, a 10" LP to Lady and the Tramp on Decca. Peggy Lee has credit on 7 songs along with Sonny Burke. Victor Young conducted 4 of the songs done at the Decca studios. The others were Oliver Wallace at Disney studios.

It would be safe to say when it comes to songs sung on the original soundtracks of films, the most popular and also the most quantity would be the 1958 till 1975 era.

There has been many obscure nice movie songs from average films over the years. Two off hand that I really loved was, RUBY-77- DON ELLIS- main theme song , sung nicely by a MR DUNN during end credits. Then there was SQUIRM-76-ROBERT PRINCE- Beautiful end credit song by a female singer.You never know where you will find a classy movie song.

I always enjoyed the singing of PERRY COMO. A singer who had many hits over the years, his own TV show and has recorded loads of albums.Like other cronies he has done his share of standard movie themes, but he has also done songs from films like REDS, SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME,PICNIC, THE ODDESA FILE, SERPICO ETC ETC

NAT KING COLE became a very popular singer in his time, he sang a bunch of film songs popular and obscure. Here are a few rare ones-CHINA GATE-IN THE COOL OF THE DAY-MARNIE[CHECK THREAD] NIGHT OF THE QUARTER MOON-KISS ME DEADLY-TUNNEL OF LOVE,RETURN TO PARADISE ETC. Of course 2 of his most famous songs were in movies MONA LISA AND NATURE BOY,[THE BOY WITH GREEN HAIR]He performed in front of the cameras at the beginning of CAT BALLOU, singing the main theme and sung on the opening credits of RAINTREE COUNTY- a beautiful song indeed.

ANNA AND THE KING-GEORGE FENTON'S main love theme for this film is sublime, JOY ENRIQUEZ, gave it a good shot with her squeaky voice[HOW COULD I NOT LOVE YOU]during end credits. It is nice but not as effective as the instrumental takes of it.

ENNIO MORRICONE-YIKES. a giant thread could be devoted just to EM'S vocal interpretations of his music. Scoring over 500 films , loved by so many different diverse musicians in the world has made anyone doing research on this topic to realize while there is a good chunk of vocal versions of his music from the original film soundtracks, that would be just the tip of the iceberg on how many others have done away from the films their interpretations of his music from films. Early on in this thread I stated HENRY MANCINI might be the film composer who got most vocal singers to sing his music. Sure. you might have gotten hundreds of singers to do MOON RIVER OR DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES, but when it comes down to a great variety of his music given worldwide vocal attempts of his music ENNIO I am pretty sure would win hands down. Since this topic on Ennio if I just dealt with on this thread will take a long time. I will mix in this ENNIO VOCAL list with other topics when it comes to vocal film music -Since this is a giant list I will not put the selections in any specific order, that itself would take days. Here is just a giant taste of VOCAL MORRICONE
