    Probably the most annoying use of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” was in the “Die Hard With a Vengeance” movie, where instead of an original rousing score or theme element, they re-use the ‘Johnny’ theme over and over *AND OVER* … AND OVER to the point I find the movie hard to watch because the same jaunty tune repeats endlessly (HEY! new drinking game …). It’s like the filmmakers couldn’t afford a good soundtrack guy after paying Bruce Willis the big bucks. To this day, I still find that movie fun, but the use of the same “theme” throughout is freakin’ annoying as hell.

    actually … I just rewatched the ‘Die Hard with a Vengeance’ movie, and it wasn’t as annoying as I remember it being (the tune), perhaps due to the Blu-ray remastering or remix of the soundtrack, I no longer dislike ‘Johnny’ šŸ™‚
