Aright so it has to be an 80's movie but the song does not necessarily have to be 80's although it can be.

Mine is Caddyshack which introduced me to the classic 1958 song Summertime Blues by Eddie Cochran:

It was mentioned in one thread that the age of influence can be why you like a particular movie or song and I totally agree with that but I don't know how to explain why I would rather listen to old music from before I was born compared with the rubbish that comes out these days. This is real music!

Nice topic Bernie.

I have discovered so many great songs/artists just by watching movies or listening to soundtracks. Often these are songs that you never hear on the radio.

A few of my favorite 'discoveries' are:

- It's Too Late from the Jim Carroll Band (Tuff Turf)

- Anything, Anything (I'll Give You) by Dramarama (Nightmare on Elm street IV)

- 99 1/2 by Carol Lynn Townes (Breakin')

I absolutely love this topic!!! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin] One of my favorite 80s soundtracks that I didn't discover until a few years ago was: Night of the Comet. Learn to Love Again and Hard Act to Follow are some of my favorites. I actually think that Lisa sent me a copy of it OMG about 10 years ago. She also sent me some treasures from Sixteen Candles and Better Off Dead.

One that I have not been able to locate and absolutely love is Hands Off from Once Bitten. "Hands off, he belongs to me, hands off"

On the 80s' note, but a movie that takes place in the 60s, I absolutely love Monkey Time from Shag.

Some great tunes rolling out guys.

I did not like the movie Streets of Fire but it introduced me to the great song, I Can Dream About You by Dan Hartman.

Good question! Although, I have seen many great movies and they have all introduced me to great songs.

Stand By Me - Introduced me to the song Rockin' Robin by Bobby Day.

I Love You To Death - Introduced me to the song You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall & Oates.

Lucas - Introduced me to the song Walk Of Life by Dire Straights.

License To Drive - Introduced me to the song Get Outta My Dreams... Get Into My Car by Billy Ocean.

There are more I just need to think harder. [Big Grin]

I also liked the loose screws song from the screwballs sequel who ever sang that?

A few stand outs for me:

I`ll Melt With You - Valley Girl

Living Inside My Heart - About Last Night

Bring On The Dancing Horses - Pretty In Pink

*On a side note, on the Pretty In Pink soundtrack...anyone know why Nik Kershaw`s version of Wouldn`t It Be Good was replaced by...whoever that other dude was!!! Bummer....

Wouldn´t It Be Good is such a classic song and i still can´t believe they chose a cover version. Nik Kershaw is the man!

Here´s another opinion though: http://www.popservations.com/cover-story/wouldnt-it-be-good-nik-kershaw/

I've always really liked nick Kershaw,I'm not opposed to cover versions as there's been some pretty good ones down the years but I definitely favour nick Kershaw's original in this case.

Decent soundtrack overall though where pretty in pink is concerned!

I`ll move on from the Wouldn`t It Be Good comments after this...I promise [Smile] ....I remember my Mom driving me to school, just prior to the concept of downloading, and this song came on the radio...I scared Mom as I made random noises and scrambled to turn the radio up. The only way to hear some of your favs back then...if you got lucky! Just a side note...

I can't personally think of any off the top of my head.
Oingo Boingo Dead Man's Party is a good one!
I remember my friend calling me up (on our old school landlines) and she had seen a The Outsiders, and I was going to see it the next day. She said she loved this song that she thought was called Gloria! That was the first time that I had heard that song too.
