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...

When I was growing up, there was one band that was my one desire. That's right, Backstreet Boys were my everything. I knew every word, I knew a lot of the dance moves, and I could still tell you all of their full names. However, the 90s were a troubling time. Everywhere you looked, people were trying to make something controversial. They didn't want to just enjoy that glorious pop music, they wanted to pit the bands against each other.

The Backstreet Boys Are Trying Out The Food Industry Because They Really Do Want It That Way

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips! Well now, our favorite pop group is not only filling our hearts, they are filling
