10 Songs That Made The Movies They Were Featured In So Much Better

- Page 1

Biography / Urban Bush Babes

There's nothing quite like a catchy song in a movie to give you the feels.

I just want to say that these songs are great on their own, but the movies they were featured in did them justice.

There are so many songs we can add to this list, but we chose some of our favorite throwback tunes that put a special touch on some of our favorite movies.

1. "Maniac" by Michael Sembello - Flashdance

I actually thought Jennifer Beals's energetic stretches was the "Maniac" dance. This scene of the movie should have been the music video, and not Michael Sembello just standing in one place while singing one of the most upbeat songs ever. I seriously don't know how he resisted the urge to move around the stage.

2. "Misirlou" by Dick Dale & His Del-Tones - Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino isn't considered the best director all time for nothing. Before Black Eyed Peas sampled Dick Dale & Del-Tones's song "Misirlou," it was famous for being in one of the greatest film masterpieces of all time!

3. "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins - Footloose

The song itself is incredible, but without the movie we wouldn't even know how to dance to "Footloose." There's more to it than just swaying side to side.

4. "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen - Wayne's World

This scene has been recreated so many times on YouTube for a reason. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is arguably the best song to sing in a group, and after Wayne's World, we learned it's the best song to sing while in your car.

5. "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John - Almost Famous

I always loved Elton John's song "Tiny Dancer", but it felt so much more special after seeing the main cast of Almost Famous sing along with it.

These next ones always got me moving, either physically or emotionally...

We Finally Know The True Meaning Of Cyndi Lauper's Song "She Bop" And We're Mortified

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public. The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit. The catchy lyrics had everyone saying "she bop, he bop, and we bop. I bop, you bop, and they bop." If you look up the definition for "bop," it means

10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
