Favorite Songs From The Movies

  • Aug 11, 2010

American films have produced some of the greatest popular songs off all-time.  After perusing hundreds of titles I have come up with a list of what I believe are the very best.  Take a look and see what you think.  Then make up a list of your own.

I Could Have Danced All Night
One of the great show tunes of all time!
18
I Got Rhythm
A Gershwin classic!
25
Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)
The theme from one of my all-time favorite flicks. Loved the movie and the title song.
26
Mrs. Robinson
From "The Graduate" a film that for better or worse pretty much defined my generation
29
My Favorite Things
Music simply does not get any better than this.

unchained melody record
The song was originally the theme song of a film called "Unchained" in the early 1950's. Was a hit single in the mid 1960's and was made popular yet again in the film "Ghost' in the fall of 1990.
31
casablanca
It goes without saying...a timeless classic!f

Yes so many Great songs, I would add Something from Pink Floyd the Wall and also something from Rocky Horror, that wonderful spoof is full of memorable songs.

Terrific theme and nice work... I would offer three more just for grins... 1. Cat People (Putting Out Fire): Cat People (David Bowie)... lousy movie but a jewel of a song. 2. FM: FM (Steely Dan)... a "lost" track from the Aja sessions that made the movie. 3. Somebody's Baby: Fast Times... Ridgemont (Jackson Browne): Rare rock energy from one of the most boring live performers in history.
