Did anyone see AFI's 100 favorite songs from movies? I loved it. But, I love movie music anyway, lol. I sing old movie tunes almost all the time, for no good reason (and very loudly and emotionally if I'm alone, lol!).

Whether you saw the show or not, what are some of your favorite songs from movies?

A few of mine are:

Once Upon a Dream (Sleeping Beauty)

Over the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz)

Somewhere (West Side Story)

The Windmills of Your Mind (A Thomas Crown Affair)

Moon River (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

Summertime (Porgy and Bess?) (I used to sing this to my dd to get her to sleep, lol)

Unchained Melody (Ghost)

Everything I Do (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves)

Old Man River (Showboat)

What are some movie songs you love?

Once Upon a Dream (Sleeping Beauty)

Over the Rainbow (The Wizard of Oz)

Somewhere (West Side Story)

Moon River (Breakfast at Tiffany's)

Unchained Melody (Ghost)

Everything I Do (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves)

A Dream is a Wish (Cinderella)

Sure there are more but that is off the top of my head.

Yes, that was an awesome show! I, too, caught only the last hour or so.

I would have to say my favorites are, Moon River, Unchained Melody, As Time Goes By. I also love The Music of The Night...was that one of the 100? I hope so. Oh, and The Circle of Life from The Lion King!

No, I don't think Music of the Night was in the 100, but I'm not sure Phantom was an actual movie (at least not the Phantom with that song). But I love it, too, as well as Memory from Cats - even if it does make me want to cry every time I hear it, lol!

I don't think Once Upon a Dream was in the 100, either, but I love that song.

And I want to add another one I love, and know by heart, and sing often, "The Rose" (I think the movie was The Rose, too, but I may be wrong).

I love Memories too. I have a Barry Manilow version and it gives me chills everytime I hear it. No one can sing that like him. I rented the movie Cats once and didn't care for any of it except for that song.

I love all the music in Phantom. You're right I don't think it was ever a movie. I did get to see it from the 5th row a couple of years ago.
