+ Yes, absolutely. A great song that`s being done to death.

+ As manny says, there are also a lot of classical pieces that turn up repeatedly, because every movie has to have its Piano Time, right after the leading couple have their big fight. Are they going to get back together again ? Not until each of them has done some mooching around on their own to some poignant backdrop with a piano track playing. Or if that`s considered too subtle for the movie-goers, the director might go for this instead :

I think that song gets used in a fair amount of commercials too.

yeah, it's pretty much everywhere, tho usually it's just the insipid "woo hoo" part

Burning Down 04-17-2011 05:54 PM

Richard Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra? Yeah. Overused. The funny thing is, I don't think it was even a popular piece during Strauss's time. In the study of music theory and history though, it's heavily analyzed because it is a symphonic poem. I'm sure I've heard it more times than you because it was assigned as homework or something!
