Where have I heard this before?

Watching THE LOVE GAMBLE (1925), at least two pieces of music were very familiar. Any idea on what other silents they might have been used in??

Maybe give people a clue where they could hear the clips for themselves?

I assume he means here:



I tried the Shazam app several times during the movie.
It identifield one piece as The Ballroom Waltz by Reginald King.
It couldn't identify the others that I tried, but I only tried a few times.

Will have a go through when less busy, but clicked on at random 10m 12s into the film and there was one section. Of course it may well have been put on the soundtrack by the uploader who could have just been using a selection of pieces he or she deemed most suitable...

Should have noted the music times in the film when watching it.
