I just watched the AFI 100 Years 100 Songs special, and I gotta say they did alot better with this one then they did with their 100 Years 100 Laughs special. I think that music is such an integral part of any film. It sets the mood, and almost becomes a central character if done correctly. I agreed with most of their choices, although I would have put Moon River higher up on the list, but only because Miss Audrey is my favorite actress and Breakfast At Tiffany's is one of my fave movies...but we can't win em all right.
Here were the top 20...
- Over The Rainbow - Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz (1939)
- As Time Goes By - Dooley Wilson in Casablanca (1942)
- Singin' In The Rain - Gene Kelly in Singin In The Rain (1952)
- Moon River - Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's (1961)
- White Christmas - Bing Crosby in Holiday Inn (1942)
- Mrs. Robinson - Simon & Garfunkle in The Graduate (1967)
- When You Wish Upon A Star - Cliff Edwards in Pinocchio (1940)
- The Way We Were - Barbara Streisand in The Way We Were (1973)
- Stayin' Alive - The Bee Gees in Saturday Night Fever (1977)
- The Sound Of Music - Julie Andrews in The Sound Of Music (1965)
- The Man That Got Away - Judy Garland in A Star Is Born (1954)
- Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend - Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
