Movie Playlist

Do you hear a song and think immediately of a certain movie?  I'm not talking about theme songs, just those that always make you think of the movie they played a part in.  This mix is filled with my "movie songs" (and therefore is certainly dated), but I'd love to hear which songs make you think of movies!

Movie Song Mix
American Girl Tom Petty
Bittersweet Symphony The Verve
Kids In America Kim Wilde
People Are Strange The Doors
Son of a Preacher Man Dusty Springfield
Fight The Power Public Enemy
Time After Time Cyndi Lauper
Everyday Buddy Holly
In Your Eyes Peter Gabriel
Mess Around Ray Charles
My Sharona The Knack
If You Leave O.M.D
Stuck In The Middle With You Stealers Wheels

Have you guessed which movies these songs make me think of?  I'll leave the answers in the comments sometime this weekend.

You know what's sad...the biggest movie songs I ever think of are kids movies...I'm a believer from Shrek might be the one that sticks the most as sad as that as (although a good movie and song :) and the other one would be from Hitch...Yeah by Usher. I'm sure I could come up with more if I sat and thought but then again, I'm not a huge movie person either, so...

I think I have all of these. Jackie's comment is pretty funny and I have to agree as "Life is a Highway" always reminds me of a particular kids movie.

Otherwise, "Welcome to the Jungle" by G-n-R and "Layla" by Clapton for me. Also, that deep voice "Oh, yeah..Chicka, Chicka" song from the 80's reminds me of two movies.

Guessed a couple are from Footloose, Say Anything, St. Elmo's Fire, and Pretty in Pink. I know that In Your Eyes is from Say Anything. One of my faves.
I always think of Back to the Future when I hear Heaven is One Step Away by Eric Clapton. It is not one of his most popular ones but I love it!
