Is it me or do most movies have haunting soundtracks? Maybe I’m just in one of those moods, but it has dawned on me that some of the best songs have been created to co-exist with the movies they were made for, reminding us of the world we were thrust into while watching it.
Here, in no specific order, are 12 songs from some of the best movie soundtracks ever:
The Bodyguard: “I Have Nothing” – Whitney Houston
Mermaid: “The Shoop Shoop Song” – Cher
When A Man Loves A Woman: “When a Man Loves a Woman” – Michael Bolton
Pearl Harbor: “There You’ll Be” – Faith Hill
Armageddon: “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” – Aerosmith
Empire Records: “Til I Hear It From You” – Gin Blossoms
Reality Bites: “Stay” – Lisa Loeb
