The best known song that came out of the film was, of course, "It's a kind of magic." by Queen.

There are 5 or 6 Queen songs in the movie and 4 of them are available on Queen's brilliant 1986 album 'A Kind of Magic'. They are 'Princes of the Universe', 'Gimme the Prize', 'Who Wants to Live Forever' and 'One Year of Love'. The first 2 I mentioned also sample vocals and sound effects from the movie. There is also a fifth song 'Don't Lose Your Head' which was used in the film (abridged), during the scene where the Kurgan drives McLeod's love interest, Brenda Wyatt, too fast in the car.

Song Trivia

Thanks to Rob Nimmo
The album version of the song "Don't Lose Your Head" was NOT featured in the film. "Don't Lose Your Head" was a reworking of the original instrumental piece "A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling". It was this instrumental piece that was actually used in the film, which then continued into "New York, New York".
