Tunes on Tuesday: Under Appreciated Movie Theme Songs

We're all used to hear the theme songs for TV shows, I mean come on who doesn't know when the claps come in on the Friends theme song or what 90's kid can't sing the Pinky & the Brain theme? That's right we all can! Movie themes tend to be waaaay under appreciated. Then there are times when the song itself becomes so big that we totally forget it was written for the movie.


Can't Fight the Moonlight by LeAnn Rimes from Coyote Ugly
I don't know about any other girls my age but I was totally in love with this movie. Girls were doing their thing! This song was sooo over played that year too, I feel like I heard it every time I turned on the radio but I still love it. I also miss that LeAnn Rimes, not the man stealing skeleton she is these days. Does she still even make music?


Space Jam Theme Song
Not gonna lie this might be the best movie theme song EVER. I mean come on didn't every basketball team play this song some time during every. single. game. after this song came out? Yup I'm pretty sure they did. Plus any song from the 90's that uses some semblance of the phrase "Whoop there it is" is gold.


Hero by Chad Kroeger from Spider Man
I didn't realize this before checking out this song but Hero was written for Spider Man. 2002 was the year of Spider Man and this song. I'm actually quite a fan on this song not gonna lie haha. So wonderfully agnsty!


Drive Me Crazy by Britney Spears from Drive Me Crazy 
Britney is obviously fabulous in this video, even with that neon green metallic plastic-y top. Gotta love the late 90's/early 00's hair styles that Melissa Joan Hart is sporting in this music video. So now it's the age old question which came first the song title or the movie title?



Men In Black and Wild Wild themes by Will Smith
Can I just say right off the bat I really miss Will Smith making music. Obviously both these songs were made for the movies but like Hero you would hear them being played on the radio all the time. Anyone remember the MIB dance? That's right get on up and jam with your bad self.


Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls from City of Angels
Until I did some research I didn't realize that this was technically this song is the theme for City of Angels. Granted I have still never seen that movie but still haha.


Scotty Doesn't Know by Sum 41 from Eurotrip

  1. I love watching this movie over and over again. Coyote Ugly is a good movie. It's romantic but also has some comedy in it as well.
    Space Jam was one of those movies that we watched in school. I hear there's a space jam 2. I'm pretty curious as to why they have to ruin a 1st movie and just keep adding to it. makes no sense.
    I love me some Nickleback. Their music rocks. The movie Spiderman did as well.
    Well.....I'm not a big fan of Britney Spears but I did like the movie Drive me crazy with Melissa Joan Hart. (isnt that who's in it...I forget)
    I'm not a big fan of Men in Black or the other song.
    But, I'm a big fan of Goo Goo Dolls and loved me some City of Angels to the point I got the dvd and the sound track. I can still watch that movie over and over again. always makes me cry.
    I'm not into Eurotrip and dont care for that song Scotty Doesn't Know. Although it's got the chick from Smallville in it. Or so that's who it looks like. Looks like a movie based on sex, parties and well i just lost my train of thought. LOL

  2. Ah...90's flashback time! :D
    I liked Coyote Ugly, too, but felt like I was in the minority there.
    As for LeAnn Rimes, this is the last thing she made that I like (or know of, honestly): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lf0e_L8bhG4&feature=kp
