Most Iconic Movie Songs of Hollywood

Music is an important part of any movie. Hollywood doesn't use songs like Bollywood does, but some songs have still managed to be forever associated with a movie because they were played at a critical moment in the film or provided the perfect way to end the movie. These are the songs that go on to become iconic movie songs

For our list of the best of them, we have left out instrumental theme music. These are the songs that you don't just hum, but sing along to when you think of the movie. It's impossible to think of any of these songs without thinking about the movie they were featured in. These are Hollywood's most iconic movie songs

My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion (Titanic)

James Cameron didn't want to end the movie with any singing, especially not a sappy song. Celine Dion didn't really like the song at first either, but she recorded it in secret with the composer James Horner. Cameron had to agree to have in the movie once he heard it, and the rest is history. 

Don't You Forget About Me by Simple Minds (The Breakfast Club)

This song will always make us think of Bender's fist pump at the end of the movie. The Scottish rock band Simple Minds had to be persuaded by their record label to perform this song for the movie. After the success of The Breakfast Club, it propelled the band to fame. 

(I've Had) The Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes (Dirty Dancing)

This legend of a song will always be remembered for the final dance Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey perform in Dirty Dancing. A song by Lionel Richie was almost used instead, but we're glad it wasn't. This song even won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for the Best Original Song

You've Got a Friend in Me by Randy Newman (Toy Story)

This song first played during the opening of Toy Story and is now forever associated with the movie series. This will make you feel nostalgic. Very few theme songs with lyrics stay with you like this. It managed to speak to many generations of audiences. 

Where is My Mind by The Pixies (Fight Club) 

This song was the perfect fit to end Fight Club. So perfect, in fact, that it seemed to have been written just to be used here (It wasn't). It also became one of the band's signature songs even though it was never released as the single.
