The 11 Biggest Songs We’ve Gotten From Movies
It's a "Throwback Thursday" here at Kiss Country and this week, we're saluting the greatest songs we've gotten from movies over the years.
And evidently, most everyone was feeling somewhat nostalgic this morning as the minute we mentioned this, the phone lines exploded.
It appears that everyone has a favorite they got from a Hollywood production.
Kenny Loggins actually gave us a couple in the form of "Danger Zone" from Top Gun, and "Footloose" from the movie of the same title.
On the country front, the movie Urban Cowboy gave us a number of great songs and will probably go down in history as one of the greatest soundtrack albums of all time, including singles like "Looking For Love" from Johnny Lee and "Stand By Me" from Mickey Gilley.
Country music was also well-represented with the movie "Smokey and The Bandit" when Jerry Reed recorded the smash, "East Bound and Down."
And what about Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" that was re-recorded by Whitney Houston for "The Bodyguard?"
Also in the country world, who could forget Trisha Yearwood's "How Do I Live" from the Nicolas Cage movie "Con Air?"
And it was actually the reverse in the case of Kenny Rogers' "Coward of the County" and "The Gambler" where the songs preceded the movies.
Course the phone just continued to blow up with other great songs that we got from movies and it seemed as though one of the songs mentioned most was "Summer Nights" from Olivia Newton-John and Travolta from the movie "Grease"
And the other came to us via the Rocky empire. It was the smash, "Eye of the Tiger" from Survivor.
