Best Use of a Song in a Movie Soundtrack

Unlike the other list of "Best Use of a Song in a Movie", this list includes songs that were not a part of the plot. This means that the characters in the movie did not interact with the song in any way.
The Top Ten
1 Eye of the Tiger - Rocky III
2 Will You Be There - Free Willy

The king of pop, rock and soul!

3 My Heart Will Go On - Titanic

This song is no human creation and james horne and celine dion are definitely not human. It directly connect with one's soul and delivers the message to the heart. Most beautiful piece of art ever

This great song and the rest of the soundtrack made Titanic perfect in every way it can be

This is the most emotional soundtrack ever

4 I Don't Want To Miss A Thing - Armageddon

This is the best suited to this flick. It makes me cry every time.

The best soundtrack ever.
great movie, great band

5 Mad World - Donnie Darko Mad World - Donnie Darko Product Image

This song is so good and its message is incredible in music... One of the best songs in a movie in my opinion. The ending is so touching and its definitely a tear-jerker.

The ending of the movie itself makes me cry, but this song with it puts me over the edge.

This is by far the best use of song in a movie... I don't know why it's so far down the list.

6 Supermassive Black Hole - Twilight

That one use of a Muse song made that movie (almost) acceptable

The song that saved the movie.

7 Where is My Mind? - Fight Club

As one of the most beautiful movie scene is going on, this amazing song makes it a real wonder. I was speechless and crying. Wow.

Awesome song that perfectly complements the crescendo of an amazing cinematic sequence.

Enough said a great song in a great movie... The best

8 Unchained Melody - Ghost

It is this song that makes the scene as powerful and memorable as it is

I cry every time it's so incredible

9 Lose Yourself - 8 Mile

This song is the greatest. How could you not love it?

10 Angel - City Of Angels
The Contenders
11 Damn it Feels Good to Be a Gangsta - Office Space
12 Take My Breath Away - Top Gun

This song is really taking my breath away

13 What I've Done - Transformers

Everything about this song just fits perfectly with the movie. The atmosphere of the song is very descriptive of the movie and I think this song should be higher on the list! Anyway Transformers is a great movie with an awesome soundtrack.

14 The Great Gatsby - Over the Love The Great Gatsby - Over the Love Cover Art

The best soundtrack ever after titanic's my heart will go on. Over the love tells the story of gatsby. All the symbols of that great book are in the song. The green light, the yellow dress, piano, champagne, bridge, ocean and the phrase "I ve turned it over in my mind"... All these are gatsby! The best song at the movie by far. Lana's song is very good but over the love is a Masterpiece. I hope that florence and the machine win the oscar but academy people rarely do the right. Finally the vocals are awesome. The high notes of florence give me goosebumps and they make me wanna cry!

A MASTERPIECE by Florence and The Machine! That song is epic and perfect for the film! Florence's voice is breathless! The best song I have ever heard! Thank you florence of making that awesome music!

Please everybody listen to this song now!

Just listen to it! Enough said...

15 Wake Up - The Matrix
16 Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head - Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
17 Sunshine of Your Love - Goodfellas
18 What a Wonderful World- Madagascar

The song playing as animals are being eaten by even bigger animals, and Alex the Lion is rolling painfully down a hill. LOL! And LOL again!

19 Only Time - Sweet November
20 May It Be - Lord Of The Rings
21 Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon - Pulp Fiction
