That Non Nobis from Henry V is so beautiful- you almost forget the movie is about war

Mr. Archbold, you just made me really mad at you-- why must you
always stir up such controversy with your 'best songs' posts?

Kidding aside, thanks for that Kalai video. I'd never seen that before.

What about Clare de Lune in Groundhog day? It made me what to even try that song with the 4 sharps and dotted quarter notes...ugh. Having very bad flashbacks but that may be the Greatest American Hero talking.

Did they get to you that you have to post in code?

This is a great list. Thank you for some wonderful music I was not familiar with. One comment: If you listen to "Hallelujah" sung by the composer, Leonard Cohen, it is a very different song. The first 2 verses are the same but not the remainder of the song. The final verse is "and even though it all went wrong, I'll stand before the Lord of Song, with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah."

I was hoping for Rowan Atkinsons version of Chariots of Fire :)
