Which is your favourite movie theme song?

Some filmmakers view the movie soundtrack as just as important as the film itself.

When the chosen theme tune is catchy enough and the film is a hit then both movie and song remain entwined forever in the filmgoer’s memory.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of theme songs we could have chosen that do just that but if we had to whittle it down to just 12 then these are our favourites.

Do you agree with our selection?
