A very debated topic, personally if I had to choose just one, it would probably be Lara's Theme from Doctor Zhivago!

I'd say "Love Theme" from The Rocketeer. (Or "Jenny" which is practically the same track)

I would say Vertigo is the greatest, with Cinema Paradiso being my personal choice.

Ilea's Theme is a pretty great one.

Also, Luke & Leia, from Jedi.

I'd agree. I also really like Goldenthal's love theme from Batman Forever.

My favorite is Barry's love theme from Robin and Marian. Just gorgeous.

This one for me! This is the theme that got me into score in the first place.

What do we mean by greatest? wink So many to choose from. It's so easy to pick a John Williams love theme (BTW, I would consider Princess Leia's theme a "Love Theme".) but there are many from the Golden and Silver age as well. How about Romeo and Juliet by Nino Rota?

Gotta agree with Brendon-K on this one...



It doesn't get much better than this for me (Love Theme from Superman)

A close second (for personal reasons) is this...(Always)

I'm probably more obscure in my choices here, but a few that first pop in my mind:

- The love theme from Witchfinder General by Paul Ferris
- Across the Stars by John Williams
- Love theme from Waxwork by Roger Bellon
Last but not least - Love theme from Dan Curtis' Dracula by Robert Cobert

Another vote for Vertigo

They may not be labeled romantic but John Barry's slow themes for Octopussy and View to a kill are lovely.

Also love Indecent Proposal's theme
Han Solo and the Princess
Love theme from Superman
Tootsie-it might be you
Ghostbusters-Danas theme

Almost impossible to name one (though surely it will be one by John Barry! smile) but on hearing the Joel McNeely/RSNO 1996 recording of this classic Bernard Herrmann score a few days ago I couldn't help thinking the gorgeous love theme is styled very much on Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde: Liebestod ...

... now that is a love theme ... to die for smile

Kev, you have no idea how much my better half detests that song. She groans whenever an instrumental version plays but the Margot Kidder recital is a definite no-no! smile
