First Movie SONG That Comes to Mind

3,662 posts in this topic

"More" -- Mondo Cane (although the movie was sort of pioneering, it wasn't as shocking as it should have been.) "More" should certainly have won the Best Song Oscar that year, over the inane "Call Me Irresponsible."

Next: A great song written for a movie that wasn't played over the credits.
