In the 1948 movie The Red Shoes, there is a scene (search YouTube for "Vicky Page is offerred her first lead role"; about 45 seconds into the clip) where Victoria Page ascends the stairs to Lermontov's villa. In the background is a view of the Mediterranean and the sound of an Italian tenor singing to orchestral accompaniment. Can anyone identify singer (and song)?

Can you name any songs or movies which feature palindromic structures? In terms of music, I don't mean notes or lyrics, but the sections, eg, CVCBCVC. Movie patterns would be more loose, but one could be settings, eg, starts out in a house, then a car, then a plane, etc, ends in a car, then a house. Another pattern could be the entrance/exit of characters. [more inside]

Can you recommend movie scores that sound like the OST for Brick
? Organic and evocative, particularly like the last 5-10 seconds of that trailer. Almost like music that's been made without using traditional musical instruments. Words like jangly or handmade come to mind. Thanks!

The 2010 French movie "Point Blank
" -- who is singing over the credits at the end of the movie? She is great, the band is great, it's a hot song, but I saw no mention of the song/band/singer as the credits rolled, and I cannot find reference to this anywhere online, aside from other people wondering who is singing also.

A friend of mine is being driven crazy by a half-memory of a horror movie or TV show that had the song "Downtown" (Petula Clark's version) in a pivotal scene in it. Does anyone remember this? Not Little Shop of Horrors, though.

Weird movie memory filter: I feel like it was a Disney Channel movie. The premise was a 14ish year old girl wanting to be in a boy's band, so she ended up dressing like a boy and they let her in the band. She was also in an all girl band and it happened that they had to perform on the same day. Chaos ensues, and she is found out in the end... Any help is great.

In the movie "Topsy-Turvy,"
what is the sprightly march-like music that leads into the oyster lunch scene?
I can't get it out of my head; it's been my earworm since February.
I posted this question on the IMDb message boards, with no results.

Is this piece of music, used in the film 'Forget Paris', just incidental music or a well known piece of jazz? If it is well known, what is it?
(starts around 2:53) [mild expletive warning for the clip]
I bought the soundtrack, composed by Marc Shaiman, and it's not on there.

I'm trying to remember a cheesy sci fi flick from...the 80's maybe. I can't remember much except there was something about a spaceship that crashlanded somewhere, and there was a "sci fi babe" on board...there was probably some sort of talking robot too. The most memorable thing about the movie was that the music was (stolen) from the movie Somewhere in Time was used...or at least something similar. Can anyone help me identify this movie?

Can anyone recognize this theme
(YSI mp3 extract; 1.2MB) from Manuel de Falla's El Amor Brujo? I have a strong sense that I've heard it appropriated as(or "inspired") some movie's theme, but the IMDb soundtrack search doesn't throw up anything familiar, credited to de Falla.

What's the music in the (International #1) trailer for The World's Fastest Indian
? It's the guitar riff that begins right after the line, "It's what we're here for"--cut to a shot of a red vehicle speeding down the Bonneville Salt Flat. It's used again after the zoom-in on Anthony Hopkins and the VO, "Burt Monro's not ready to finish yet, I'll tell you that mate." Quicktime: small
