Interesting ones from Great Britain and Australia!   


Here is a couple more sci-fi themes:
 

Original theme from Battlestar Galactica (1978)


Theme from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979)

When people think of iconic characters from the 80's films they might say Terminator or Predator or the Alien Queen but there was another who hardly gets a mention and yet has one of the most recognisable themes of all.

I give you the pride of Omnicorp... Half man, half machine, all cop! Robocop!!

Just learnt something new! In all the times I've watched Robocop I can't remember ever hearing a theme song!

Going with an iconic theme song from the seventies that has become a theme for a lot of weekly boxing shows since 1976- the 'Theme of Rocky'

Very true with the Rocky theme especially as most people think of Eye of the Tiger as being the Rocky theme.

Glad to show you something new with the Robocop theme which made me wonder if you remember the tv series they did of it to sell the toys, lunch boxes, shirts, hats and other merchandise?

Only lasted one season but was my first introduction to the franchise so you can imagine my surprise seeing the ultra violent films later on!!

Actually the TV show was filmed in Toronto back in 1994 seven years after the Original Paul Verhoeven. It never completed running here, getting canceled after protests about what it represented to kids! Took the series being released on DVD by Shout Factory that most Canadian managed to see the whole series!

Two of the scariest themes in late 80's horror came from the same movie- Hellraiser

Main theme

Lament Configuration (Making of the cube)

I love it when films put a song into the action so when a few weeks back I was watching X-Men: Apocalypse a song that I liked was played I knew it had to be posted here so please enjoy a good song with a fantastic piece of action as Quicksilver uses his super speed power to save everyone from an exploding building...

Will admit that the character was made better than the original introduction of him in the original X-Men comics in 1964!
