That Song From That Movie


By: Josh Gross

We've all been there, watching a movie and thinking, "Damn Geena, this is a great song." That's why for this week's Mixtape, we gathered songs with iconic placement in films. Everything from Bond themes to Dolly Parton vehicles to the song that introduced the world to Bill Haley and the Comets, "Rock Around the Clock," via its legendary placement over the opening credits in the 1955 film Blackboard Jungle. And of course, "Don't You Forget About Me," from The Breakfast Club, which turns 30 this month, meaning those kids are now the adults they feared becoming (and a reminder that the Source is hosting a special screening on April 22).
