Tossin’ It Out There: What’s YOUR Favorite Song From a Movie?

In conjunction with the (title pending) theme this week, I decided to turn our discussion here to the subject of Music in Movies.

As those of you who listen to our show will hear, there’s a deep connection between the two arts, and sometimes that winds up creating an inseparable bond between the two in the viewer’s mind. For me for example, I can NEVER hear The Simple Mind’s “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” and NOT think of “The Breakfast Club”. Of course, that’s not the ONLY example, either…

I’m definitely leaning towards popular music songs that have been incorporated into a movie (or became hits from a movie), but if you feel the need to mention film scores, the judges will be lenient ;)

In the meantime, let’s hear it! What songs do you associate strongly with the movie it’s from? Can you hear “Stuck in the Middle With You” and not get a little grossed out? Does Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” bring up flashbacks of Tom Cruise sliding across the floor? Do you listen to “Eye of the Tiger” to get yourself psyched up?

What are YOUR Favorite Songs from Movies?!? :D
