10 Great Movie Songs
These 10 great movie songs are sure to uplift and inspire. Otherwise, they'll at least get stuck in your head for days on end. You'll find yourself humming or tapping your feet before you realize that you've been invaded. Don't worry. These songs are cool to be stuck with.
"Rainbow Connection" - Kermit the Frog sang this tune while on a lily pad with his banjo in this "Muppet Movie" classic. Rainbow connection is about the magic of rainbows and the realization of dreams.
"Tequila" - You all remember Pee Wee Herman when he pissed off a bar full of bikers. This is the song Pee Wee redeemed himself with when he did his famous dance.
"Minnie the Moocher" - This Cab Calloway hit was featured in "The Blues Brothers". Curtis performed this song about a gold digger with a big heart in the movie.
"I Got You Babe" - Bill Murray woke up to this Sonny and Cher song every morning in the movie "Groundhog Day". The main character was stuck in a time loop in which every day repeated the exact same events as the day before.
"Sweet Transvestite" - Transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter surprised an unwitting couple who stopped in for help with a flat tire. He sang this "Rocky Horror Picture Show" theme song to reassure them that he was cool.
"Singing in the Rain" - Those door to door killers in white suits sang this great movie song before taking people's lives. The scene probably ruined a beautiful classic song for many people while breathing new life into it for all the sickos out there.
"Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" - Uma Thurman danced to this Urge Overkill song in "Pulp Fiction". Then she overdosed on heroin, which she thought was cocaine. It was a very ecstatic scene up until the bitter end.
"Bohemian Rhapsody" - This Queen song gave lots of teens something to do with their time after Wayne and Garth in "Wayne's World" ruined the song. The two dudes banged their heads during part of the song, and the idiocy became contagious. Regardless, it's still a great movie song.
"One Two Freddy's Coming for You" - The little girl in "Nightmare on Elm Street - Freddy's Revenge" sang this song as an introduction to this movie sequel. This was probably one of the spookiest parts of the whole movie.
"Star Wars" - Who cannot love the theme from "Star Wars"? John Williams produced the scores for both "Star Wars" and "ET". John wrote a lot of great soundtracks and perhaps some of the greatest movie songs of all time.
