"Don't You (Forget About Me)", Favorite Songs from Movies, Index
Movies in the eighties had some of the best soundtracks, and the most memorable and popular songs at the time seem to have sometimes outshone the movies themselves. As I get time I'll add more songs to this list, feel free to send me your additions to the list. If you want, try and list which scene during the movie the song appears during. Oh, and the whole "Valley Girl" soundtrack get's an honorable mention since it's packed full of great eighties songs. I also rank and review other eighties soundtracks on my Soundtracks of the Eighties Page in case you are interested.

I think this was also used in a teen angst like movie of the 80s but I can't remember it!!
"Love Theme from Reds" by Perry Como used in the movie Reds (1981)
To a previous searcher looking for the 'Love theme from Reds' - this is probably "Goodbye for Now" by Perry Como, he sings it as a duet with an unknown lady. If that's not it try looking the movie up on IMDB, they have a soundtrack listing.

"No Easy Way Out" by Robert Tepper used in the movie Rocky IV
By far, the best song from the 'Rocky' movies. Every time I hear it, I wanna get into my car and just drive as fast as I can without any worries at all. - It just gives me a pure adrenaline rush whenever I hear it! An underrated song probably because it was performed by a guy who no one never heard of before and who ending up a one-hit wonder!
