new films theatrical trailers borrow music (I'd say steal but technically, it is not) from other, older movies every now and then? Did you notice the pattern too?

Some seem to be used over and over again. Forrest Gump's, Home Alone's and Edward Scissorhands', for instance, immediately come to mind -the latter often to depict fairy worlds.

What do you reckon?

The two that bug me are: 1.) the choral piece from Carmina Burana that was first used in The Exorcist and is now lazy-ass musical shorthand for "ooh boy, here come the Devil!"...it is waa-aay overused...and 2.) the opera duet (can't recall the name at this time) that is an easy indicator for, "hey look, that couple is cra-aazy in love!", which was first used in the mid-80s film The Five Corners when Rodney Harvey and a couple of girls go elevator riding. Find some other music to use you lazy bastids! :D
