The Pink Panther Theme -- Henry Mancini

For being written for such a silly (albeit funny) movie, The Pink Panther Theme is one of the most iconic jazz movie (and character) themes out there. Like The James Bond Theme, all it takes is a few notes to bring to mind either Peter Sellers or the Pink Panther cartoon character, depending on which you saw first. However, the song is a sophisticated, rich jazz piece that can stand alone on its own merits, which is why it's in my song rotation.
