If someone did post the Band of Brothers Theme it must have went dead. Here it is:

Haven't added one in a long time.

 

I recently got the DVD MacArthur off Amazon, and was reacquainted with it's pretty stirring theme, a must add here in this topic I do believe.

 

Movie of course as you know is of a great subject matter, and while Okay, they're are more than a few U.S. uniforms and gear errors that are hard to get past, like the use of Leaf pattern covers, whole scale use of Marine covers, M45 gear for Buna in late 42 and the PI Campaign, and a few others goofs, like Peck pointing to Luzon when he proclaim's he'll reenter the Philippines via Leyte :lol:, and showing female cadets at the Point when it's supposed to be 1962 :lol:. A part from all that, Peck was very good in the lead, in fact superb in my estimation, the late and tragic Ed Flanders as Harry S too. I'm sure other movie buffs will agree that it should of been given the PATTON treatment, maybe it should of been handed off to the Great Richard Attenborough, but at the time he was involved with A Bridge Too Far, and right after started to wheels rolling for Gandhi.

 

The Great Jerry Goldsmith composed this one.

I had the soundtrack to A Bridge Too Far and it sounded darned good at high volumes.

 

Theme from 1941 is perpetually stuck in my head.

 

Another good one was the opening theme from the 1990s miniseries "The Rough Riders." Opening was a well done montage that brought the viewer up to speed with what was going on in Cuba.

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

The Theme from the Fall of Eagles, the 1974 British Television Mini Series this opening was played at the very beginning of each and every episode, great graphics there with the three imperial eagles of the Habsburg, the Hohenzollern and the Romanov Dynasties.

The Theme from the 1965 movie Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines, I always thought this was a Great War British RFC Song, but nooo, it was written for the movie :lol: A catchy song with cleaver lyrics still :)
