"Don't You (Forget About Me)", Favorite Songs from Movies, Songs Beginning with T
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.

By the way killer guitar virtuosos Steve Lukather of TOTO (My personal favorite!) plays guitar on the track as well as on the Medeiros one!
