This really brought back a lot of memories.

I'm a 16 year old resident of Canada, and music is a big part of my life. Many of the songs featured in this countdown of the top 100 best movie songs are songs that I had already heard before. Many of those I knew some lyrics. Even if the show lasted about three hours, it was worth listening to. A lot of great songs were selected to be among the top 100 and I would say the choice was excellent.

I may be young, but there are some old classics that should be a part of every generations' repertory, and this special TV show showcased some of the best songs I have heard in my whole life.

It is really nice to be able to share the songs along with my mother and this is really a must-see show. Adults a well as teenagers and even younger kids will enjoy singing along to the songs they know and love.

I hope they will broadcast it again!

Absolutely brilliant

10/10

When it appeared on British TV I came in on song number 26 so I missed an awful lot but having seen the 26 I am now determined to get the whole show. John Travolta as the host was made for the part and his exit to the music from his film was great. The people who commented on the individual songs were very good indeed, genuine and sincere in there comments and well known in their own right ie Andy Williams Paul Simon Art garfunkel etc and there comments were spot on. The whole 26 I saw were a pleasure to hear, Singing in the rain ole man River White Christmas and of course Somewhere over the Rainbow were just an example of the sheer quality of the contents of this programme. The hard part now is finding the whole programme any suggestions.

Great Show But needed more Travolta.

AFI's 100 Years 100 Songs was a great show to watch and sing along with. I did wish Travolta had a bigger part with more introductions, he did not even say anything about his personal entry of "Summer Nights" from "Grease". I was also expecting him to make comments on his idol of James Cagney and "Yankee Doodle Dandy" being his favorite film as a child. But having Bette Midler and Barbara Streisand making comments was so Awesome, they are amazing women who can sing and act. Liza Menelli would have been a great addition as well but her sister was great, but only commenting on mother Judy Garland. Of course one could have picked Judy Garland and "Over The Rainbow" as number one from the start but all the songs and comments from 100 to 1 was great fun to watch.

Songs were missing....

I Liked this show but it was missing lots of Songs....ie. "Can you Feel the Love Tonight" from the Lion king also Mufasas theme,

"Under The Sea" From The little mermaid and "A Whole new world" from Aladdin, and songs from Bambi " April Showers", As well as songs from Dumbo like "When I see an Elephant Fly", The Star Wars, The Lord of the rings, and The Phantom Of The Opera (although recent they could put it in there if they re-due the show). Those soundtrack's should have got mentioned. just to name a few. Those Disney Songs were and still are extremely popular songs and I was irritated at the fact that they weren't in this show. I hope they re-due this show with maybe more songs in it. I liked John Travolta hosting it, that was awesome!! I think it actually needed more of Travolta in it too.

I saw this program a few months ago, and was absolutely delighted. So many fantastic songs from so many fabulous movies. There were some songs I wanted to see there, like "A Whole New World", and also "The Morning After" (The Poseidon Adevnture), but all in all I must admit they made a pretty good list. Many of the songs I had never heard before, but fell in love with them after the program, like the song from Snow White, and Evergreen. It was also interesting to see how many songs Barbra had on the list. What an amazing artist.This is he kind of program you can watch over and over again. Personally, I wouldn't mind hearing more of each song, but guess the program would then be too long :( And Audrey... What a beautiful actress, and also a very very good singer. Outstanding!
