"Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin
in Thor: Ragnarok
“The first time I watched the movie, I thought the song was used way too much, but now it pumps me up every time I hear it! This is especially true in the scene when Thor finally realizes his full abilities as the God of Thunder to defeat Hela."
"A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton
in White Chicks
"If Terry Crews can enjoy some early '00s cheesy pop ballad, we all can."
"It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette
in Pretty Woman
Buena Vista Pictures
“It plays when she’s leaving the apartment. I totally cried. Such an iconic rom-com heartbreak moment."
"This was just a TASTE of the talent Edgar Wright has when choreographing action to music, and it adds so much to a scene that could have been just another senseless zombie fight."
"I love Queen, but I’ll admit that a lot of the time I listen to the Anne Hathaway version instead of the Freddie Mercury one."
"My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion
"I instantly want to cry as soon as that instrumental starts."
"Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse
"This song will forever remind me of the baseball scene in
"Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds

The Breakfast Club. The way it bookends the film is perfect. You can't beat a final shot like the one of Judd Nelson fist pumping the air as that song plays."
"Pocketful of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield in
Olive Bridge Entertainment
“Good Vibrations” by The Beach Boys
"I was enjoying the movie up until this point, but this scene and the use of this song somehow made it even better. I was gasping, laughing, and Holy Sh*t-ing even though such a brutal scene was happening. Definitely brought the movie from good to great for me."
"I love the way the song brings everyone together and they all start singing along. The scene instantly brought a smile to my face and it really captures the love of music and how it connects people."
"It was adorable to see Baby Groot dancing and it made that scene even more hilarious. I’ve been obsessed with that song ever since."

"I'm a Believer" by Smash Mouth
"It plays when Charlie starts to come out of his shell and he walks toward Sam and Patrick while following the beat of the music with each step. That scene basically sums up the whole movie, but it's one of those moments that made the movie SO GOOD."
"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
in Remember the Titans
"I always think of that movie when I hear the song."
20th Century Fox

"It's at the beginning and matches the movie's tone really well."
"Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by Eurythmics
