Used to wonderfully moody effect in the film "American Graffiti", the first ten seconds of "I Only Have Eyes for You" by the Flamingoes use minimal musical materials -- a third repeated by the piano in an upper octave, hushed "bop-shu-bops" and a half-chanted melody -- to perfectly distill and evoke the moment you fall in love. I listen to it over and over again, trying to figure out what makes it work. My wife and I used it as the music for our first dance at our wedding reception -- I'm not sure it was the best choice; it was almost *too* intimate.
