Underrated Movie Theme Songs

A brief list of some underrated movie theme songs....

Conan the Barbarian (1982)
A forgotten gem from the movie that started Arnold Schwarzenegger's career. 

Maniac (2012)
A creepy synth score that is reminiscent of 80s slashers

Braveheart (1995)
The most famous movie listed here, a beautiful theme 

It Follows (2014)
A new favorite, the score for this movie is worthy of being in the horror movie theme pantheon

Amelie (2001)
Technically not the theme song, still one of the better piano based songs out there

The Last of the Mohicans (1992)
Flat out one of the most underrated theme songs of all time

Black Hawk Down (2001)
Perhaps the saddest song listed here, perfectly meshes with this unfortunate disaster

Oldboy (2003)
Poetic and hypnotic 

Starry Eyes (2014)
A song that perfect fits what is happening in the movie when the song is played

Sin City (2005)
A heavy handed theme that fits in with this recent neo-noir thriller

For a Few Dollars More (1965)
Overshadowed by The Good The Bad and the Ugly

Man on Fire (2004)
Another sad song that fits in with the scene its played in at the end for the movie

The Warriors (1979)
A fitting theme to this beloved cult classic


  1. Of the ones that I have seen, I agree, these are some incredibly underrated movie themes. A Few Dollars More might be the weakest of the trilogy, but that theme is still excellent, and of course The Last of the Mohicans is amazing. Braveheart is a classic and one of my favorites, and Conan's fits the movie well. Great idea for a post!


    1. I definitely agree! I just figured I'd throw out a list of some lesser known ones (though Braveheart and Mohicans is pretty well known). But Conan's whole soundtrack is surprisingly fantastic, Like all around a very good soundtrack IMO!

  2. Oh I see It Follows and Maniac are here. All is good. Awesome choices overall on both lists.
