Marion’s Theme

The score for Raiders of the Lost Ark (and the subsequent Indiana Jones movies) is one of my childhood favorites. The collaboration of John Williams and Steven Spielberg created truly everlasting music.

‘Marion’s Theme’ from Raiders of the Lost Ark, is one of John Williams’ most classic love themes. I think it’s second only to the Han and Leia love theme from Star Wars. When distilled to a single guitar, you can see the genius and sophistication of composer, John Williams.
