Some songs you probably haven’t heard in a while. You might have been little. You might have been a teen. When you hear these songs, you are instantly transported back to the time when you saw the movie. Maybe you went with your family. A friend. Maybe even a significant other. These songs have a special place in your heart. So here there are!
For me, a lot of these songs are when I went to movies as a kid. Songs like “Nobody does it better” from the movie “A spy who loved me”. James Bond movies where huge when I was growing up. I was lucky to have my aunt or my mom take me to see them. When I got older, I went with friends. I still love James Bond movies.
The very first record I bought was this soundtrack from Raiders of the lost Ark. It was actually the whole movie on record. It was pretty cool. I think I still have it somewhere…
Star Wars is another genre that has a very memorable theme song and had a song that made the charts in 1983. Who can forget the Ewok song? Well, you can–unless you were born in the late 80s or after!
Saturday Night Fever and Grease had more hits than Cubs opponents (Zing!) when those movies were released. I’m not sure it’s even fair to include these in this post. “Night Fever” and “You’re the one that I want” are probably the most memorable from each one.
Don’t you (forget about me)– Simple minds. John Hughes had a lot of hit movies and those movies had a lot of cool songs in them. Probably one of the most memorable is this song from The Breakfast Club.
Ghostbusters. I don’t know if there is a single person aged 25-45 who doesn’t know this song immediately. (okay, maybe one or two)
That’s it for this volume. Stay tuned for more of your favorite movie songs in the future!
