    Default The Commpendium of Movie Theme Songs that Say The Name of the Movie in them

    I doubt this amuses other as much as it does me, but whenever I watch older movies I am totally fascinated by the often completely terrible, yet totally awesome theme songs during the opening credits that actually features the name of the film in the lyrics. It always leads me to wonder how awesome the themes of other movies could have been had they had similar theme songs. This is where we will compile as many of them as we can into one place.

    I was tempted to put Batdance in the original post...but it seemed a bit off. Still, it might as well belong here. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite Bond song

    i didn't know how strong my guilty pleasure was for phil collins' songs from the 80's was until i heard this song again.

    also, even though the song was created before the film, this one is pretty great.

    I'm still trying to decide what annoys me more, when a filmmaker takes an existing song and creates the movie from that or an artist is hired to create a song with the film title in it.

    In both cases it's pretty cheesy.

    I don't think the latter is annoying at all. A little cheesy, yes. If I was really rich, I'd make a western and have somebody make a song with the film title.

    These feelings are the only reason i like this movie. Seeing the OC that is long gone makes me misty.
