"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"
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
in case you are interested.

"Love Theme from Reds"
