Streisand's memorable movie theme songs

I'm not a gung-ho Streisand stan, but she really did have a few songs that were, to use an overused term, iconic for their time.

Some artists get one or two if they're lucky (unless your name is Judy Garland, of course) but I'd argue she had three.

(And I'm talking about songs written for her and/or the movie - Hello Dolly was iconic, too, but for Carol Channing and others.)

These three really seem to be memorable standards even years later.

Barbra always sings like she's on a Broadway stage. She seems to always be belting out the songs.

This is why I'm not a Streisand Stan Fred or fan.

Very funny, R4. I actually love that love theme. When I saw it in the movie theater, most of the very large audience sat and listened to it. It wasn't a credit reading crowd so they were staying for the song.

A Star is Born (1976)

The version of the Way We Were over the film titles is sublime. The tempo is quicker than the hit version and her vocal quality is at her peak. Much better arrangement too.

Where's the option for Ethel singing "Shortnin' Bread"? Or "Lily of the Valley"?

R7, You're the Top is not a "love theme."

R11, I think R4 was making a pretty funny little joke. You sound like an insufferable, humorless bottom.

I think the only individual for whom the song “Hello Dolly” is iconic for is a Louis Armstrong.

That said, The Way We’re Were.

I agree that You’re the Too should be at the top of this list- she sings the hell out of it- definitive.

R11, neither is The Eyes of Laura Mars. If I remember correctly, it's about a serial killer or something like that.
