The title Adagio for Strings...el l u d e s the movement of a heart, when the heart looks into the eyes of love....for the very first time...the song allows you to feel...that inflection point...that moment when one loves another....e v e n when it is lost....for the meaning of this song...is the power of love, music is the mirror of the soul..

Damn, why do I feel like whatever part of a movie this would have played on this would have been the best part?!

One of the great iconic classics. It's just got that nostalgia to it.

Seems to be on more sound tracks than Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. But I respect it too much to hit I'm tired of this track.

Written in the 30s, before Vietnam, unless Barber is some sort of time lord . Used in Platoon though, which worked beautifully.

It was written well before the Vietnam war. It was played at Roosevelt's funeral

It was written to convey the horrors of the Vietnam War.

This always reminds me of 9/11 because I heard it on NPR that morning driving to work. Pandora has helped me find out about it.
