Now we are getting down to the powerhouse songs on the list. This is where we finally reach some tracks that could arguably be in the Top 5. Each one of these songs has an argument to be #1. It’s like, “I am the Spielberg of movie themes”. I hear the jam and immediately visualize grade A movie cinematic quality. Nevertheless, these are the Top Movie Instrumental Themes, numbers 11-15. This section of the list has songs will scare the hell out of you, turn you into the primetime cop, and include one X factor (show sucks by the way): Dinosaurs. Yeah, I said it, Dinosaurs. Remember when you were a kid and you watched how the Flintstones were cool with their Jurassic friends. One of these songs changed my whole outlook on Dinosaurs. The list:
15.) Halloween Theme- I still hate hearing this song. When I was three years old my father thought it would be hilarious to have me watch this movie the night before trick-or-treating. His motive, you ask? Why would you want to walk around the neighborhood with your kid dressed like a Transformer just so they can get a sugar high and stay up all night. My old man put an end to that. Let’s just say I refused to go trick-or-treating and since then, this has been a great “Taters family tradition”.
14.) Mission Impossible Theme- This is another great tune to sleuth to. Listen, most of us still do not fully understand what happened in the first Mission Impossible (if you claim you do, then you sir are lying), but I cannot think of a song that you immediately recognize from the intro more than this one.
13.) Jurassic Park- As stated before, the Jurassic Park theme makes me remember a time when I was naïve enough to believe that we could actually be friends with Dinosaurs. Ha Kids! Flintstones (still use the Flintstone vitamin by the way) bring you up to think that you can work with dinosaurs like every other animal. Jurassic Park took my self-proclaimed pact and crushed it. You bring a dinosaur in front of me and I am going to massacre that animal and then make steaks out of it. Let’s be honest – Jeff Goldbloom survived. That means if it were me there would be dino filets everywhere and McDonald’s would be serving McDino 365.
14.) Beverly Hills Cop- These might be my favorite cop movies, besides Kuffs (DOM Kuffs movie review), and this song is an iconic part of it. You have a pre-Dr Doolittle Eddie Murphy who takes that whit and applies it with gratuitous gun violence. It’s a piece of America.
15.) Superman Theme- The best superhero of all time. Period. I know there is some guy out there – who looks like the Simpsons comic book guy – that will argue some unknown ubiquitous character. Don’t care, because Superman will destroy him. It’s in the name. Give me a better adjective than “super.” Nope, you cannot do it. Kryptonite is his only flaw, similar to me with Samuel Smith’s Imperial Stout (DOM Stout beer review). Outside of that, he is immune to everything.
