In Your Eyes / Say Anything
I would point out that films like LABYRINTH and XANADU (and also LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS) are musicals, and so have an "unfair advantage". Since the songs are actually written as part of the storyline.
Going back to Queen, their songs for HIGHLANDER seem to qualify....
As for Prince's music for BATMAN--the song "Partyman" which was the music for Joker's assault on the museum, seems to fit, as well.
I read recently that the song "A Girl Like You" by the Smithereens was written for the movie Say Anything, but it was not used because the lyrics were too much of a plot summary.
UHF may be one of the best videos ever made
I still listen to Xanadu. Such a cheesy film and soundtrack that is so incredibly awesome
It's a great Music/Movie moment but In Your Eyes was released on So in 1986. Say Anything was 1989. So it's going to go in the pre-dates category.
Ditto - REEEEEEALLY bad movie, but ONJ more than makes up for it.
The remake of Breathless (with Richard Gere) started with Jerry Lee Lewis singing Breathless and ended with X's cover of the same song.
This is exactly the one I was thinking of.
Teacher Teacher - 38 Special
Against All Odds - Phil Collins
All The Right Moves - Jennifer Warnes ...barf. That's a bad one!
Endless Love - Lionel Richie and Diana Ross
At around 4:13 in is the most beautiful steel "synth" guitar solo. I want a honky-tonk band to cover this in the worst way.
From the Tron soundtrack
Rick Dees - Meat Balls
from The Falcon and The Snowman:
from Who's That Girl:
from the Beverly Hills 2:
from Romancing the Stone;
Related: the video for Billy Ocean's When the Going Gets Tough, used in the soundtrack for Romancing The Stone has Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny De Vito acting as Ocean's backing singers.
Huh? This was a cover of the original from The Call, that was released a year before the movie. And it has no mention of anything in the song remotely related to vampires.
The Call was a great band.
Oiled up, sax playing bodybuilder less so.
