This is Bill Conti's first entry of many on the list. Keep in mind that you will be seeing his name pop up a lot more specifically for his musical contributions to two big movie franchises, Rocky & The Karate Kid. Can you believe The Karate Kid movies actually had a love theme? I don't believe it was written for the first movie, but snippets of the song can be detected in parts II and III. I believe it's playing in Part II during scenes between Daniel and Kumiko. It also can be heard during the dramatic scenes between Daniel and Miyagi in Karate Kid Part III. The love themes for Karate Kids II and III actually made their way onto the soundtracks for each movie. Yet, the best stuff from Bill Conti is from the first Karate Kid movie, none of which made it to the hard to find soundtrack. You'd have to find different avenues to get the better musical compositions. Enjoy the Love Theme For The Karate Kid below at #47.
