    35 - The Howling

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63D9a...e_gdata_player

    Heard in some early-'80s Taiwanese productions, including:
    Lady Piranha (a.k.a., Lunatic Frog Women)

    36 - Mandingo III*

    War Dance

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lEVQ...e_gdata_player

    Top Fighter (KF movie documentary)

    *Unfortunately, all tracks from Mandingo III have been taken off of YouTube, possibly due to licensing issues(?).

    37 - Shogun (1980 TV miniseries). Soundtrack by Maurice Jarre

    Tea and Jealousy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNum3...e_gdata_player

    This track is heard in many '80s MA films from Taiwan and HK that had Japanese themes, including:
    Legend of a Fighter
    And many others...

    Despair and Madness

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjQNu...e_gdata_player

    This track was also commonly used in several Taiwanese/HK films of that era, also often in Japanese or ninja-themed stories, but not always. The most distinctive/commonly-used section begins @ approximately 1:27. Heard in:
    Country of the Beauties (a.k.a., Island Warriors)
    My Lucky Stars
    The Ring of Death (a.k.a., The B@stard Kung Fu Master)
    And many others...

    39 - The Spy Who Loved Me

    The Tanker

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0BtrGMj9kg&sns=em

    Most of this distinctive track is probably familiar to many fans of late-'70s Hong Kong (and probably Taiwan) KF movies. Some examples:
    Snake in the Eagle's Shadow
    Duel of the 7 Tigers
    Enter 3 Dragons
    And many others...

    *restored.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4uYt...e_gdata_player

    Heard mostly in Taiwanese KF films circa 1977 and '78, obviously for 'romantic' or 'sad' or 'thoughtful' scenes. Heard in:
    Bandits, Prostitutes and Silver (a.k.a., The D@mned, a.k.a., Battle of Shaolin)
    Mars Villa
    Shaolin Iron Claws
    And numerous others...

    *apologies for not putting all the Spy Who Loved Me tracks together in one post...

    46 - Daimajin

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxry5aLhXBg

    Akira Ifukube was the undisputed master of soundtracks of Japanese kaiju films of the 1960s. Many of his compositions were used interchangeably in several of these monster films, or only with minor variations. However, this entry is probably more appropriately mentioned than entry # 6.

    Executioner From Shaolin

    51 - Animals Are Beautiful People (1974)

    Trailer

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1fqy...e_gdata_player

    The part starting @ 0:40 is heard in many Shaw films, most notably:
    The 36th Chamber of Shaolin

    Drunken part

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opLbm...e_gdata_player

    The part from about 1:52 is used in many Shaw films, particularly Lau Kar-Leung-directed films, including:
    Shaolin Mantis

    I'm sure the part from 2:40 has been used in Shaw Brothers or independent KF films, but I can't think of any titles offhand.
