Romeo and Juliet (includes Love Theme)
One of Nino Rota's most memorable tunes has, it turns out, been remembered and reused by many other artists over the years as well. Despite its ubiquity, it has fallen 11 places in the 2014 Movie Music Hall of Fame.
There's a timeless innocence to Rota's theme for Franco Zeffirelli's lavish interpretation of the Shakespeare play. It's since become a byword for romantic angst and, perhaps unfairly, has been used countless times in an ironic fashion on television and in other films to lend an overwrought or hackneyed tone. But taken on its own merits and in the context of the film, it's simple, delicate and beautiful.
