Interactive post: movie songs 

So, everybody associates movie songs with the movies they were in. Like "Danger Zone" from Top Gun, "Power of Love" from Back to the Future, or that wretched Titanic song.

But all of those tunes were made for the films, or appeared for the first time on the soundtracks. More interesting to ponder are songs that were already out, but which, when included in a movie, made an indelible impression on us -- permanently fusing the song and movie together in our brains.

I came up with a few of mine. At least a couple of them are universal, I'm sure.

Bohemian Rhapsody (Wayne's World)
Tiny Dancer (Almost Famous)
Ain't No Mountain High Enough (Remember the Titans)
Unchained Melody (Ghost)
Most of the songs on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack
Secret Garden (Jerry Maguire)
Tuesday's Gone (Happy Gilmore)

I'm sure there are tons more. Anyone else have some? Remember, no songs originally released on soundtracks.
