Hey, hey, hey!
Hey, so Merry Christmas everybody! As I write this it is already the 26th of December, but I realize it is still Christmas to some of you. So hey, from me and all of us here at Theme Songs, we wish you the merriest, and we wish you the best in the coming year.
So I guess it only makes sense to post a Christmas-themed theme song, so let’s start with one of my favorite (there are only a handful) Christmas films, Home Alone. Yes, that Macaulay Culkin film.
And yes, it has a theme song. Listen to it below and surely you will associate it with the movie. The song, as with almost all of the songs in the film, was composed by John Williams. In the official soundtrack—Home Alone: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Music Composed & Conducted by John Williams)—it is entitled “Main Title from Home Alone (‘Somewhere in My Memory’)”. The song segues to “Somewhere in My Memory” sung by a children’s choir.
It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in the 63rd Academy Awards (1990), but lost to the song from Dick Tracy.
So here you go, the theme song from Home Alone.
