Ok, I'm a bit dissapointed in that top 10, but I guess "that's game", as the youngins say.

I don't think I saved a copy of my list, but I know I had Stand By Me on there. Did no one else remember that song??

I also put The Future and Waiting For The Miracle by Leonard Cohen, from Natural Born Killers. Not a big fan of NBK, but it did introduce me to Cohen's music, so I thank it for that.

1. Neverending Story, Neverending Story
2. Ode To Joy, Carter Burwell,  Raising Arizona
3. Head Over Heels, Tears For Fears, Donnie Darko
4. Don't You Forget About Me, Simple Minds, The Breakfast Club
5. Stand By Me, Ben E. King, Stand By Me
6. Red Right Hand, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Scream
7. In Roxy's Eyes (I Will Never Be the Same), Melissa Etheridge, Welcome Home Roxy Charmichael
8. Under The Milky Way, Church, Donnie Darko
9. The Future, Leonard Cohen, Natural Born Killers,
10. Waiting For The Miracle, Leonard Cohen, Natural Born Killers
11. Jump in the Line (Shake, Senora), Harry Belefonte, Beatlejuice
12. Love Is Strange, Mickey and Silvia, Dirty Dancing
13. Ghostbusters, Ray Parker Jr., Ghostbusters
14. Making Time, The Creation, Rushmore
15. Cry Little Sister, The Lost Boys
16. Storybook Story, Willy DeVille, The Princess Bride
17. Taquila, The Champs, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
18. Yellow Submarine, The Beatles, Yellow Submarine
19. Get Into The Groove, Madonna, Desperately Seeking Susan
20. Pretty In Pink, Psychadelic Furs, Pretty In Pink

That song is awesome! But I guess I forgot who wrote it or something.

How did Hip to Be Square from American Psycho not make it? I had it at #5 and ScottD had it it at #11. Shouldn't that give it 36 points?

I noticed Scott had The Banana Boat song on his, didn't even think of it.  I feel a deep shame.  That scene is hilarious.

Ha!  Only two out of my 25 made the final list.  Eff y'all!  :P

OK, so I love Smokey and the Bandit and that song is just classic. 
Running On Empty is such a great film and James Taylor's song is used perfectly.
I posted the entire "Out Tonight" - "Another Day" sequence from Rent and would have included that as one song if I thought I could.  My favorite song from a fantastic musical.
I chose "Lonely Boy" from Boogie Nights even though they only played a bit of it in the film, again because it was the just the perfect song for that scene.
"Time After Time" from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion is just a classic clip and one of the first songs I thought of for this list.  I had to make sure I included it.

It seems like I had a lot of films make the final list but just not the songs I had chosen from them.  D'oh!


I love your list, you have a lot of songs I very painfully cut from mine.  Including Sweet Transvestite.  I have no idea why I chose Time warp over it.
