Hi! I'm very passionate about these cues, my personal favorite is 'Fashion Show' from Designing Woman, the orchestration is just about perfect and I feel encapsulates the sophisticated feeling of most dance music, what's yours?

I really like the aria "The Marriage of Figaro" on The Shawshank Redemption soundtrack.
It's not only (prominently) featured in a great scene in the movie, it's also a gorgeous piece of music in itself.

Also love disc 3 of the expanded Titanic score.

Easy.

The Harry James piece playing on the bandstand in Body Heat when Ned first sees Matty. Barry's wrote his arrangement of this as if he were scoring a dramatic cue, because that silky trumpet washing over Ned's face is a perfect audio/video moment.

Mr James is always sure to make everything he plays marvelously silky!

In a lot of my favorite scores, you can't necessarily tell the source music from the rest.

Reminds me of 'The J Waltz' cue from 'The Beautician and the Beast' although it is used mostly as source music, the last section acts as underscoring in an exchange between the protagonist and the villian!

I agree, and MGM reused this Andre Previn cue many times afterward. At least two examples I can cite are THE PRIZE and NORTH BY NORTHWEST.

Actually, this theme appeared earlier than DESIGNING WOMAN. It is included in the 1949 film noir TENSION, which is the first score for which Previn received screen credit. During a scene in a cocktail lounge, the "Fashion Show" tune is played on a jukebox.

• My all-time favourite source music cue is – Ken Thorne’s version of “Pick Up The Pieces” from “Superman II”.
On the Expanded Soundtrack it is titled: “Diner Jukebox #2”.

• However; I also adore “Honeymoon Hotel” – (also composed by Ken Thorne; and – also from “Superman II”)
• “Luthor’s Luau” – from “Superman: The Movie” – is not far behind…
• And if I may also include “Lacy’s Place” from “Superman IV: The Quest For Peace” – on my list…
That cue is the "Theme Music" to my apartment!

Mine are without a doubt Trevor Jones' Medieval source cues in Excalibur.

I love the street music playing when Bogie gets his "Frankenstein" haircut in THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE. So disappointed it was not among the acetates when we did the soundtrack for Rhino!

The Parade of the Charioteers from BEN-HUR has long been one of Miklos Rozsa's "greatest hits." Source music? The line between diagetic and nondiagetic is often subtle. We see the trumpeters but not an entire band. As Rozsa scored the film music for band (unlike the album and concert arrangement), I assume this is intended as source music.
