What is your favorite movie soundtrack song?

It has to be a Pop type song from a movie that had an actual movie soundtrack album. Remember those?

 :popcorn:

Extra points for the combo video: shows music video and movie clips.

   I'm particularly fond of Ecstasy of Gold, Trio, and a few others from Westerns. And the movie Get Carter had a couple of good tracks. But they are not Pop like songs.

So I'm going to have to cast my vote for Flashdance, runner up would be Must Have Been Love by Roxette.

I have two that I like:

Everybody Knows - Concrete Blonde from the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack. It is a cover of the Leonard Cohen song.

Hazy Shade of Winter - The Bangles from the Less Than Zero soundtrack. It is a cover of the Simon and Garfunkel song.

Not one song, the entire movie:

Baby Driver - the film starts with Bellbottoms by The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and blasts off from there

mix4fix,

You know what they say about rules. :lol: It is better to beg forgiveness than ask permission so I am going to post one of my all-time favorite songs. The movie turned me on to that song/album and an artist who became one of my favorite singer/songwriters. There is no complete sound track but I did find this clip from the movie.

Laurie Anderson, "Strange Angels" from the movie "The Doctor" starring William Hurt.

I could choose the theme from "Lawrence of Arabia" on many days, but today...

Gabriel's Oboe is a close third:

Oops.  Didn't notice it was limited to "pop" songs.  Don't listen to much of that. 
Maybe "I'm Easy" by Keith Carradine from the movie Nashville.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd0zqR66rn0

If you've ever been paying attention to Halsey, her piece from the Birds of Prey soundtrack is freakin' awesome.

* Experiment on Me - Halsey - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv2PjNfAj48

Feel free to look up the movie scene on your own.

Man, thanks for the random timely thread!  I just scored an album I didn't even know existed because I gave up looking for it years ago.  I have a lot of soundtracks in my collection and like (liked) them because before the Internet they were a great way to get mixes of music to check out bands I would have never heard of otherwise.

I don't know if this is my favorite, but easily in the top 10:

Agent Provocateur: Red Tape

Full song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLXKn1Y1gZ8

Where I first heard it, from the movie: The Jackal

Ooh, ooh!  I change my vote.  I just remembered Dusty Springfield's  "The Look of Love" from the old Casino Royale soundtrack.  And it's also on a famously audiophile recording.
