@Fiddlerman Just wanted to make sure there was some feedback here on your youtube videos, Pierre. I have been looking at them weekly and I find even for a newbie like myself, they are quite fun and do-able. I would highly recommend them as an extra practice song for folks. Good music too! I was playing Hedwig's Theme and my son came into my room and told me "You're a wizard, Harry!"
It looks like the movie themes are doing well for you, judging from the view counts 😀 I know I personally have the most fun working on stuff like that when straying from my usual fiddle stuff.
I've been rewatching Cheers and now I want to try and noodle around and see if I can pick out that tune, haha. So I'll throw that one out there 😉
But things off the top of my head that I like (but not sure I could figure out how to play)
Mario Bros theme
Back to the Future
... and now I've had a brain fart, but those two have been on my mind for a while.

Other Beatles favourites - Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude, Michelle, Norwegian wood and so on sound adaptable to violin... copyright permitting...
Eleanor Rigby has that cool little violin riff in it too which is fun to play. The A-B/G-B/F#-B/G-B/E-B riff that separates the ... all come from? (riff) All the lonely people ....
A very classic Beatles walking riff. .
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
If we are adding to the list, I would like to add,"In the Mood", "Stardust" and "The High and The Mighty" theme.
Others that I want to learn are : Venture's "Walk don't Run", theme from "Bridge over River Kwai", Ghost Riders in the Sky", "You'll Never Walk Alone", You've Lost that Lovin Feeling", Bridge Over Troubled Waters", and technically, HHahn's "Mercy".
