Next one up is “Singing in the Rain” with Gene Kelly 1952.  I was only TWO!
Next up is “Goldfinger”, a James Bond movie out in 1965.  I was 15.   The theme tune to 007, Goldfinger, performed by Shirley Bassey.   NEXT UP is Henry Mancini’s, Breakfast at Tiffany’s 1961 – Moon River!  I
have chosen the one by Anday Williams.
 and in 1967 when I was 17 yrs. of age the movie came out was “The Graduate”, and thus the “Sound of Silence” was born by Simon & Garfunkel.

  1. Great minds – we both picked Singing in the Rain, and it doesn’t get better than that musical number. I don’t know why I didn’t pick “The Graduate” considering that Simon and Garfunkel was one of my top 10 musical picks during my childhood. I owned the single of Goldfinger and swooned over Moon River. Have a great week of memories, Xmas Dolly.

  2. So is next week a freebie?
    I can’t hear Moon River without thinking of that scene from the movie Fletch…

    1. Yes Sir, next week is a FREEBIE! Anytime you want to know what theme we’re having just look in my sidebar and you’ll find the date and that’s what we’re doin’!!! okie dokie?

  3. Marie,

    Before I begin, I wanted to say how happy I was to read your comment at “Create With Joy” that Dave has a new job. God is good to hear our prayers and give him work again. I hope this job plays out better than the last one. I like all of your song picks. I watched The Sound of Music a time or two on TV when I was in my teens and then after we had kids, the network would run this movie every Christmas eve. It’s a great movie filled with lots of good mewsic. I don’t know if I’ve seen either “Dancing in the Rain” or “Moon River” but the songs I’ve heard a thousands time in my life. I like all the James Bond theme songs and I never saw the first flick until after we got married. It was one of Roger Moore’s films but they were still rerunning some of the early movies in the 1979 and early 80s. We own the entire James Bond collection either on disc or streaming with the possible except of a newer released film. In the past year, we watched “The Graduate” for the first time. That movie had some great tunes but I was actually disappointed in the movie. It didn’t live up the epic film everyone made it out to be or maybe, it was just me. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such a fabulous selection of movie theme songs! Have a tunetastic week, my friend!

    1. I sent you an email regarding Dave, and thank you very much girlfriend! Great job on my tunes too! Glad you like them. Big hugs… heading for Dixon, IL now to see my son. We’ll talk when I get back. HUGS

  4. Mary knows a British lady who does a dead-on impression of Shirley Bassey singing “Goldfinger.” Anthony Newley wrote the lyrics, Leslie Bricusse the music; that’s a winning combination, I don’t care who you are.

    “Moon River” was my parents’ song, as it was for almost everyone of that generation. That was another of those movies directed by Blake Edwards with music by Henry Mancini. Mancini wrote this with Johnny Mercer, and the studio executive hated it and wanted to take it out. Audrey Hepburn, who did her own singing, said “over my dead body!” The scene with her on the fire escape, singing it and playing the guitar, is one of the great scenes in film. She’s absolutely beautiful.

    Great set here! I didn’t realize you could do movies, but I did all right with the TV themes…

  5. Music does get me in a better mood when I get home from work!

    Thanks for sharing these goodies!

    – Lisa

  6. Singing in the Rain is one of my earliest memories of going to movies. My parents also took us kids to see South Pacific and Camelot.

    Sorry for being late in getting around. The days in my week just up and disappeared this week.
