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.
