We are Growing - Sung by Margaret Singana.

The song and melody were written for, and extensively used in the 1986 production of Shaka Zulu.
The epic film was a highly successful and popular mini-series in South Africa, as well as Britain and the United States.

Rarely rebroadcast today, and considered politically incorrect by some (or even "erotic" for showing fairly accurate historic African dress), it nevertheless had the full support of the Zulu royal family during production.
The director, William C. Faure, insisted that the black cast were all local people connected to the history, and denied any roles to African Americans movie stars.
Many local technicians were also trained on the production.
Part of the film set remains today as a famous Zulu cultural village for tourists known as Shakaland, and it continues to employ local people.
Ironically, some of the international white cast were subsequently blacklisted for working in then apartheid South Africa, although here it was widely seen as a breakthrough in entertainment that not only depicted a pre-colonial African empire, but was equally popular amongst all races, and it was probably the first time that regular white boys had posters of local black stars in their bedrooms.

Unfortunately, after the fall of apartheid (or what officially remained there-of) the HIV/AIDS epidemic took its toll on some of the crew and cast, including the iconic Henry Cele, who played Shaka and died in 2007.

Give Peace a Chance - Originally by John Lennon, but performed here by the cast in the final scenes of the The Strawberry Statement (1970).

Pacific Rim theme is pretty much testosterone-generating!

Love the back-beat!

Not from a film.. But a TV ad that every time I'd hear it, would get me grooving. I remember I had tried for about a week to find out who did the song/music for the commercial spot.

Finally, I stumbled upon 3 blokes from the UK making waves with their form of electronica house named "Dirty Vegas"

Hi skyblueworld!
I'm not a dude, lol...but I agree with your choice of "Drive" (I bought the soundtrack cd too). There is nothing like driving at night, through the city...with the windows open and the song "Night Call" playing make me feel a rush. (is that my testosterone?)
It kinda makes me feel bad-ass, like I'm on the prowl...hehe...(even if I'm really just going to buy milk).

Okay, sorry guys...carry on!


Awesome! I think I might just do exactly that today, sounds epic!

Some great films in this thread, I best get saving up for the blu-rays

Sergeant Barry Sadler - The Ballad of the Green Beret.

Perhaps not the most popular world-view at the time, but the values it ostensibly aimed to defend, like freedom of speech and democracy (in the face of totalitarian Marxist regimes), still make it one of my favorite songs today.

From the movie The Green Berets (1968).

The Lost Boys (1987) - Cry Little Sister.

I recall the days when hard rock and metal were banned from the airwaves, and the cultural boycott against South Africa meant there were no tours or shows.
Then came a movie called Trick Or Treat.
I'm not sure if it only applied to testosterone, but it certainly made teenage hearts beat faster.
Back then we had video parties with snacks and sodas, and after that movie everybody was on such a talkative vibe.
It was one of the coolest parties ever.
