Some of my favorites are:

Don't You - Breakfast Club(end of movie)
Hazy Shade of Winter - Less than Zero(Clay returning home)
If You Leave - Pretty in Pink(Prom scene)
As the World Falls Down - Labyrinth(Ballroom scene)

Does anybody else have any personal favorites?

I love the uses of music/songs all throughout The Lost Boys. The music/songs fit perfectly with each scene...

I like the phil collins song in "Say Anything".
Don't know what the song is called though.

Best ones are the ones where you can't specifically recall the music - because it's all 'the movie'. If the song stands out as music playing whilst the movie plays, then it's not really doing it's job. That's one of the reasons why I like Some Kind Of Wonderful so much - the music and the soundtrack is great, but it's great because it complements the movie so well, and doesn't overpower it.

Now, if the question was Best Music played in an 80s Movie, then you're looking at:
  • Don't You (TBC)
  • The entire soundtrack to The Big Chill
  • Most of Risky Business (thank you, Tangerine Dream)
  • Stuff from Streets Of Fire

Devolution here,

I tend to think there are many things that are overlooked.

Hearts on Fire from Rocky IV.
Number One from Real Genius.
Twist and Shout is beyond well placed intentionally in Ferris Buellers.
Wild Sex (in the working class) in Sixteen Candles.
Just Once in The Last American Virgin.

I have to think, there are more.

We are DEVO

Rocky IV is an excellent example of music scenes. I like the driving scene when "There's No Easy Way Out" by Robert Tepper was playing.

Not 80's movies but I've always felt that Quentin Tarantino always has awesome choices for his musical selections. They always seem to be an extension of the scene instead of being a seperate layer from the scene if that makes any sense. Most songs he has ever used from that point on whenever I hear those songs I visualize the movie. They are forever inseperable in my opinion.

Sammy, I feel the same way about Martin Scorsese-I love his selections in Goodfellas and Casino.

I keep hoping they'll make another Deniro/Pesci gangster related movie. Maybe they will throw a little Pacino on the side...

sorry motley but I'm not much of a Pacino fan. I agree 100% that DeNiro and Pesci need to team together again and maybe this time they'll be directed by Tarantino even though Scorses would be cool again or maybe even Ridley or Tony scott.

Pesci and DeNiro ARE working together right now on a new gangster flick called "The Good Shepherd" directed by DeNiro himself. I believe the story is about the Irish mob scene in Boston. Check it out on IMDB, also stars Angelina Jolie, Matt Damon, Alec Baldwin...

"Real Genius" the ending tune, "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" by Tears for Fears.

I don't like these particular songs but somehow they're perfect when they're used in these films:
At the end of "How I Got Into College" the song "Love Changes" by Climie Fisher starts playing.
And at the end of "Cookie", "I Should Be So Lucky" by Kylie starts playing, in both cases they really used the buildup tune to good effect.

Everytime I hear the name Matt Damon, I think about "Team America World Police." LMAO. It's great to hear that DeNiro and Pesci are doing another gangster flick...

Oh, Saweeeet! I am totally psyched. Now I gotta click on that link to see what it's all about.
Hey guys, I was reading the trivia for Casino the other night- they dropped the F-bomb 422 times in the movie, mostly by Pesci!

Back to the topic at hand, I would say Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider in the movie Vision Quest.
