"Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" by Christopher Cross

Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do) earned birthday boy Christopher Cross an Academy Award in 1981, which he shared with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen; not only does the song form the emotional core of the film Arthur (starring Dudley Moore, Liza Minnelli, and Sir John Gielgud), but it also serves a similar purpose in the stage musical The Boy From Oz, in which it is sung as a duet by Allen and Minnelli (who were once married).
