“Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” (1981)
"Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" (1981) was written by husband and wife team of Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager, and was performed by Christopher Cross. It was the theme of the Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli movie Arthur. The song went on to win an Academy Award.

The song's famous lines are:

CHORUS:
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love
