“Love Theme from Romeo and Juliet”, also known as “A Time for Us”, is an instrumental arranged by Henry Mancini. It was a number-one pop hit in the United States during the year 1969. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on June 28, 1969, and remained there for two weeks.

The melody is the theme from the movie Romeo and Juliet, which starred Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey. Rearranged by Mancini, the song started competing with rock and roll songs from The Beatles and the Rolling Stones on an Orlando, Florida radio station and spread from there. It faced stiff opposition from some radio states for being too soft. Those stations had to change their mind when the song become number one.

This release also topped the U.S. easy listening chart for eight weeks.
