mmm...Shirley Bassey sang some pretty kick-ass Bond themes.
That's quite true but Nancy's is my all-time favourite.

I have to go back and listen. Nancy is great. Shirley Bassey though, I don't know, pretty great! I guess we are lucky to have a time when pop music could really make an impression.

Schnittke's score for "Story of an Unknown Actor" is hauntingly beautiful, and quite a bit more accessible than his angst-ridden concert works:

I absolutely love this by the same composer:

Well, this weekend I revisited Ghostbusters, which I do not believe I had seen since the season it opened.  And one half-surprising takeaway was, that while at the end of the movie you're probably humming the hit single theme song (Who you gonna call? No, really?) Elmer Bernstein's orchestral score really makes the movie the great success it is, from the ondes martenot in the opening NYPL scene, to the underscoring of the near-apocalypse finale.
