For me, I have to choose 2 songs from movies that have touched me a lot.
First would be :
Gary Jules' version of Mad World from Donnie Darko. Awesome song and fit the movie just perfectly.
The other is gonna be :
It's The Liars - The Other Side of Mt Heart Attack, from the movie The Nines. Just a great song which, again, fit the movie excellently and has a
lot of deep mening to itself even without the movie. It's been in a couple of other movies, as well.
I also have to second the nomination for Rainbow Connection from the Muppet Movie, as well as the Star Trek Motion Picture Overture.
This was the number one hit the year I was born. My parents were musicians and loved this type of music. It is my favourite song of all time;
confounding people I know, because I mostly listen to (very) heavy metal. xD

Mom had me into musicals at an early age. Still love them and vocals are IT for me. I used to be able to sing this well...well, a quarter million
cigarettes ago. Check out the black woman at the beginning of this one. POWERFUL voice:
"Wind Beneath My Wings" by Bette Midler from the movie Beaches with Midler and Barbara Hershey. That movie was such a tear jerker for besties back
then! And I've always been a fan of Bette Midler anyway.
On a related note, has anyone ever seen the Macaulay Culkin movie where he plays this kid who lives with his aunt because something happened to his
parents, and they go to a motel where he meets a man he suspects is Santa Claus? The hotel manager throws a Christmas In July party and a bunch of
stupid but funny stuff happens. I've tried looking everywhere for it, but I can't find it. There's a possibility the kid just looked like Culkin, but
I'm not sure. The title made a reference to Christmas too.
The reason I'm asking is because there's a scene where his aunt sings about 30 seconds worth of song to put him to sleep. I've always liked the song,
but I've forgotten the movie it comes from so I can't find it!
