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.
