  •  Hard to argue with the songs that made the top 10. (2+ / 0-)

    But they are a bit dated.  Maybe that reflects the quality of song writing?  More contemporary stuff has already been mentioned above that I think is worthy of making the list (specifically "Don't you (Forget about me) from The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink - both of which weren't actually written for their respective movies IIRC.  

    I have to think that the art of writing memorably songs for a specific movie is an endangered species. Where did more recent Disney stuff come in the list? (i.e. material from The Little Mermaid, The Lion King). Animated films may be the last bastion of this genre.  For example, I've heard very good things about the songs form the recent film "Frozen". but, seriously, there hasn't been a truly memorably film musical is decades.
