Indiana Jones

"The Raiders March," or the Indiana Jones theme song, makes Mr. Henry Jones, Jr. feel like a hero, even though it evokes memories of him running or being chased--we forget his grave fear of snakes to focus on his achievements. In its own time it lost out on an Oscar to the equally iconic Chariots of Fire score.

"Escape from the Temple" is extremely fast paced, matching Indy's urgency to get the hell out of the Temple of Doom. "The Raiders March" makes an appearance toward the end to celebrate his escape to safety.
