    Adding, taxi driver theme, goodfellas theme, fireworks theme... This is sort of becoming a 70s-80's films soundtrack compilation lol, with a few foreign exceptions of course.

    Once more, any suggestions would be hugely appreciated, for the most part i'd prefer the tracks be vocal less semi contemporary works.

    You should try arranging your themes into some sort of compilation revolving around a theme, period, region or idea, that might help to narrow down the tons of movie themes out there. The ones you selected sound good!

    I'm in love with the funky and soulful 70's themes, especially blax and foreign library. The variation of different moods in music they created during this era is interesting. I think you'll like these



    Hugo Montenegro - Love Theme From The Godfather is an ill cover of the original!
    The 24 Carat Black - 24-Carat Black (Theme)
    Theme From M.A.S.H. by Bobby Hutcherson
    Rhythm Heritage - Theme from SWAT (probably the funkiest one)
    The John Gregory Orchestra - Theme From Swat
    Wendy Carlos - A Clockwork Orange Theme is real dark & scary with heavy synths
    J.J Johnson - Theme from Cleopatra Jones
    Pleasure - Theme For The Moonchild
    Willie Hutch - Mother's Theme (Mama)
    Isaac Hayes - Shaft, Tough Guys Title Theme
    Steve Gray - Theme from the Grandfather
    George Benson - Theme From Summer Of 42' was used by Heltah Skeltah
    Jimmy Lewis - Theme From Solomon King has some intense violins and rhythm
    Dennis Coffey & Luchi de Jesus - Black Belt Jones Theme was a funky cut sampled on LL Cool J's Jingling Baby

    my favorite theme of M*A*S*H is by Ahmad Jamal, those rhodes are excellent







    King Heroin by The JBs is so mellow and heavenly
