* The ''Film/{{Superman}}'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIljr9dkGlM March]]. Best {{Fanfare}} ever.
** Very effectively used in the helicopter scene that begins with a growing sense of urgency as Lois faces greater and greater peril until Clark Kent appears. When he realizes he has to change, the growing musical swell that climaxes when he rips open his shirt to reveal his chest symbol is a classic of the superhero film genre.
** Not to mention John Ottman's use of said theme, as well as his own music, to create a soundtrack that is pretty much non-stop SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming|Moments}} and [[TearJerker tearjerking]] for ''Film/SupermanReturns''.
*** A leading example is when Lois Lane's family is trapped in Luthor's sinking ship. The music begins with a mournful dirge as the trio are pulled under to their seemingly-inescapable doom. Just when the tragedy becomes too much, two red boots appear on the door window and the March blasts out with full thunder as Superman saves the day!
** ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' ends with Clark Kent running out onto the Daily Planet's roof, ripping open his shirt to reveal the S-shield beneath as he prepares to take flight, the camera focusing on that iconic symbol all while that classic ''Superman'' theme song plays ever so magnificently in the background and into the end credits.
** Oh hey, since we're on the topic of Superman, may we present his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJWQ528zYBY love theme.]]
** In addition to the main fanfare and "Can You Read My Mind?", there is a really moving musical moment after young Clark Kent tells his mother Martha that he's leaving Smallville to pursue his destiny up north. It's called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ge-8LWd2lds "Leaving Home"]], and starts a minute-and-a-half into that track.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8Rs7170gyU "The Planet Krypton"]] anyone?
** The mysterious and graceful [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2SMVnVaX9c "Fortress of Solitude"]]. It exemplifies John Williams' specialty with the {{Leitmotif}}, since it takes cues from "The Planet Krypton," but uses them in a subdued, haunting manner, musically indicating the Fortess is basically literally the ghost of Krypton.
