Damn, It Feels Good to be a Gangsta: A Pop-Culture Mix Tape

This is a great article about some movie-moment songs that you still associate with certain scenes even when you hear the song played years later. We all have our favorites. Ones I particularly agree with (from the article) are:

  • Don’t You (Forget about Me), Simple Minds from The Breakfast Club
  • Mad World, Michael Andrews & Gary Jules from Donnie Darko
  • How to Save a Life, The Fray from Scrubs “My Lunch” (great song and episode)
  • Wise Up, Aimee Mann from Magnolia

And a few more that I can think of off-hand:

  • In Your Eyes, Peter Gabriel from Say Anything
  • You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling, Righteous Brothers from Top Gun
  • If You Leave, OMD from Pretty in Pink (I’m a John Hughes fan, duh)
  • What a Feeling, Irene Cara from Flashdance
  • Time of My Life, Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes from Dirty Dancing
