The theme for Midnight Cowboy (1969) won a Grammy award, although its writer, John Barry, didn't receive an onscreen credit. Propping up the chart at number 100, it's a new entry for 2014.
John Barry might be known for a heavy reliance on strings and brass in his film soundtracks, but Midnight Cowboy is evidence of an experimental side. The strings make an appearance eventually, but the most striking aspect of the tune is the meandering harmonica solo. In 1970, the theme (sans harmonica) was covered by Ferrante & Teicher and reached number 10 in the US pop chart.
