Best Movie Music?

With the Oscars coming this weekend, what's your favorite movie soundtrack (or song from a movie)?

Here are two of my favorites:

Stanley Kubrick's stately late-1970s 
picaresque Barry Lyndon...

The clip above shows off Handel's Sarabande, 
as well as works by Bach, Schubert, Vivaldi, 
Mozart, and wonderful Irish folk music.

And—The chaotic sprawling 1967 James Bond spoof 
featuring music by Burt Bacharach, the 
Tijuana Brass, and Dusty Springfield.

Cole Porter's "Kiss Me Kate" 
isn't so bad, either, 
though its score was 
written for the stage...
