The Top Ten

1 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica / One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

At #1 because both the song and the movie are great classics in their respective fields. - Metal_Treasure

Great movie,great song! - zxm

2 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian / Troy

The song is as epic as should be (14 min) and is about the final days of Troy as foreseen by Cassandra, daughter of the king of the destroyed city. - Metal_Treasure

The song sample is wrong - this is 'Curse My Name' and not 'And Then There Was Silence' (both by Blind Guardian, both on this list).
I reported this error but I don't know when it's gonna be fixed (if any). - Metal_Treasure

3 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden / Dances with Wolves

White man came... - Metal_Treasure

4 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth / Dante's Inferno

The song is great, the movie(s) - maybe not so much. - Metal_Treasure

5 Kim - Eminem / Mr. & Mrs. Smith
6 Lord of the Rings - Blind Guardian / The Lord of the Rings

Both are based on Tolkien (the song came out in 1990). - Metal_Treasure

7 Traveller in Time - Uriah Heep / Back to the Future

"If I could go back the same way I got here
And see the people that I once held so near
...
'Cause I'm a man with a whole lot on his mind
Just out there somewhere travelling in time, travelling in time
I've tried for so long to find some way of helping mankind" (1972) - Metal_Treasure

8 Robin Hood - Edguy / Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves
9 Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men / 101 Dalmatians
10 One - Metallica / Johnny Got His Gun
