This music is truly genius! Every time I hear the theme when Will was terribly wounded I want to cry! :( It brings the whole scene into my memory. And the part where Will and Elizabeth are fighting for their lives and getting married! Absolutely beautiful!
The music is absolutely great as the whole soundtrack to the movie. The Pirates trilogy has AMAZING music and I can't get enough of it. You can feel every scene of the movie through this music.

This song from Amelie is so exceptional. Almost everyone knows this song. It isn�'t the only great piece form this film. I also love Comptine d�'un autre l�'apres-midi. I don�'t know anyone, who doesn�'t like these songs. They just fit into the movie.

My favourite part of any Star Wars score. The scene itself to me represents everything the story is about: Luke's future/destiny, father/son, Light/Dark, etc. And this musical theme reminds of that every time I hear it. - truckturner
One of the most memorable tracks of the Star Wars scores by John Williams! So emotional every time I hear it makes me cry a tear!
Say what you want about the film, but this is one of the most wonderfully-made and emotional score I've ever heard in a film.
The most beautiful song in the history of the world
The emotional beginning of the boy singing at the beginning and then the joining of a huge amount of vocal sound. The cords sound amazing and the bass singer adds to it and makes it such a moving and powerful song
Absolutely beautiful score, hitting you right on the emotional bone.
I was about three when I first watched this film and before then (when I was a baby) my parents would always play ABBA in the car and I loved and I remember crying so much at a very little age when hearing this song sung by one of the best actresses
