The last song in the EuroVision movie on Netflix. It was awesome.

If you haven't seen the movie, you should.

And in case Elfman's piece doesn't count because it's an instrumental, here's a song with lyrics which has been used in movies (part with lyrics begins at 47:37)

Written to be a part of the Godzilla soundtrack, it kicks ass AND slams the movie itself as the worthless distraction for the masses that it was.

First heard this in The End Of Violence, maybe not my absolute fave but it was a Tom Waits song I had never heard before and it took me a while to find it on anything I could have at home.

Why stop at just one or two songs?  The whole movie soundtrack is classic!


Yes, I did see it in a theater in the burb's of Chicago when it came out.  There were people dancing in the aisles for most of the musical numbers.

Figured I'd take it on a strict interpretation of the question.  There have been lots of songs used in movies not necessarily specifically created for it.  So in this case, I love the way this moves between genres and then mixes.  Movie wasn't good, but the music was.

Lots of great songs have appeared in movies, but when I think of songs specifically recorded for a movie soundtrack this is one of the first that comes to mind...

/OMD's "If You Leave" and New Order's "Shell Shock" were also recorded for the movie.
//Still ranks as one of the best soundtracks ever.

Yes, I did see it in a theater in the burb's of Chicago when it came out.  There were people dancing in the aisles for most of the musical numbers.

I resisted the urge to post the entire soundtrack, and picked two instead.

Alamo Drafthouse, about a year ago, had a showing of Blues Brothers.  My wife and I took our teenage daughter, so she could see it on the big screen.  It was after Aretha's death, and when she first appeared on screen, the entire theater applauded.
