Songs That Will Forever Remind Me Of Movies...

Here's just a few for now...

"You Spin Me Round (Like a Record, Baby)" - Adam Sandler in The Wedding Singer

"(Sometimes), All I Need Is The Air That I Breathe..." - Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

"Don't You (Forget About Me)" - Breakfast Club

"Pretty In Pink" - Pretty In Pink

"I Believe In Miracles" - Nick & Norah's Infinite Play-List - (It always bothered me that the baby-boomer directors never used the Tom Tom Club version, especially since they purported to feature NYC bands).

Anyway, let's get this list going. Any songs that will always remind you of some movie???

My computer is being crazy now so I might have to do the whole reboot ritual soon..

PS: Re: "Don't You (Forget About Me)" (from Wikipedia) -

Forsey asked Cy Curnin from The Fixx, Bryan Ferry and Billy Idol to record the song, but all three declined; Idol did later perform a cover of it on his 2001 compilation album Greatest Hits. Schiff then suggested Forsey ask Simple Minds who, after refusing as well, agreed under the encouragement of their label, A&M. According to frontman Jim Kerr, the band was reluctant to record the song as they felt they should only record their own material, relenting after persuasion from Kerr's wife at the time, Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, and a phone call from Forsey in which he expressed his admiration for the band.[1] According to one account, the band "rearranged and recorded 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' in three hours in a north London studio and promptly forgot about it."[2]

Also, I heard that Simple Minds didn't want to record this song unless it removed the words, "Vanity / Insecurity." I think that's interesting.
