Favorite song from a movie?

There's a lot of good songs in movies, which one would be your favorite?

For example, Titanic as My Heart will go On by Celine Dion.

Mine is probably Highway to the Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins, the song is in Top Gun. I love it so much, they use it very well in the movie as well.


If we can use musicals as well, I'm going for "Sweet Transvestite" from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

If not, then "Your Love Is Lifting Me Higher" from Ghostbusters II.

I like Sting's songs in the movie Leaving Las Vegas, like Angel Eyes or My One and Only Love. I have the OST.


The Hierophant
I like the song Wake Up by RATM at the end of The Matrix. I think it was absolutely perfect the way they used that song. Such a great beat and the perfect message to the end of that movie.

I don't know why, but I kinda like the song at the end of "Goodfellas". It's a cover of "My Way" sung by Sid Vicious from The Sex Pistols. His voice is awful but the mood of the song has a strange attraction to it... No where near my favorite but I'm just throwing it out there.

A better favorite of mine has to be "Rain Drops Are Falling On My Head" used in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". Definitely one of my all-time favorite musical interludes in a movie.

I hate to admit it - not about the song - but while flicking the channels about 6 years back I came across a really bad movie called Romantic Comedy 101 [ with Joey Lawrence ] ... And there was a song in it by Edwin McCain called 'I'll be' and I just love it. It was going to be my wedding song in September - but now we're just doing the Las Vegas thing instead.
