Ok for those of you know I just finished my retro lobby and my wife and I were thinking that we would fill our jukebox with theme songs from movies prefable ones with lyrics.

We are children of the 80's, we are both 34 yrs old so this may help you help me....LOL...(jerry mcguire)

ANy suggestions.....
OH, and BTW the jukebox only holds 160... 45's

Live and Let Die

(And since we're on Bond pics, and you are children of the 80s, there's Duran Duran with A View to A Kill.)

Wait...I didn't just recommend a Duran Duran song, did I?

Do you think you can actually find 45's from the 80's?? Well, here are some suggestions. Some aren't necessarily theme songs, but were iconic songs from their respective movies. Many were Oscar nominated/winners, but I can't say I particularly liked them.... but they were definitely quintescential "80's songs"--

Arthur's Theme
Footloose
I'm Allright (Loggins, Caddyshack)
Eye of the Tiger (Rocky III)
St. Elmo's Fire
Don't You Forget About Me (Breakfast Club)
Lookin' For Love (Urban Cowboy)
It Might Be You (Steven Bishop, Tootsie)
Fame
Nine To Five
Endless Love
For Your Eyes Only
Up Where We Belong
Flashdance... What a Feeling
Ghostbusters
Let's Hear It For Boy
The Power of Love (Back to the Future)
Say You, Say Me (White Knights)
Glory Of Love (Karate Kid II)
Mean Green Mother from Outer Space (Little Shop of Horrors)
Somewhere Out There (An American Tail)
Take My Breath Away
(I've Had) The Time of My Life (Dirty Dancing)
Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now (Mannequin)
Shakedown (Beverly Hills Cop II)
I Can Dream About You (Streets of Fire)
Let the River Run (Working Girl)

DAY-UM.... Ed.... I was (obviously) thinking you were looking for songs from the 80's... You were saying you are TOO YOUNG to know theme songs that are old enough (on 45's) to go with your retro theme! Is that what you meant???!? I think you confused a couple of us.

I would be intrested in seeing a list

MikeWh,
What I was trying to say is my friends and I are all around the same age so I was thinking of 80's movie songs, you know for that flashback to the 80's feeling. You are doing great and they really don't have to be themes I should have said music from movies like what you said iconic songs from their respective movies.

BTW- I am a DJ and I know where to get 45's of all eras

Hah! Every time I hear "Wooly Bully", I think of Spicoli "surfing" through the crowd at the dance. Who would have thought that Penn would become such a great actor.

BTW, people used to say I looked like Ferris Bueller... Maybe everyone looks like somebody from an 80's movie.


Hey. I thought of perhaps one of the most highly "soundtrack-oriented" 80's movie, although the music is (ironically) not 80's music. Every time I hear one of these songs, I think of....

The Big Chill
ICONIC-- "YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT"/Stones
ICONIC-- "A NATURAL WOMAN"/Aretha Franklin
ICONIC-- "I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE"/Marvin Gaye
ICONIC-- "A WHITER SHADE OF PALE"/Procol Harum
"GOOD LOVIN'"/The Rascals
"IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR"/The Rascals
"WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN"/Percy Sledge
"THE WEIGHT"/The Band
"BAD MOON RISING"/CCR
"GIMME SOME LOVIN'"/Spencer Davis
"TELL HIM"/The Exciters
"JOY TO THE WORLD"/Three Dog Night
"AIN'T TOO PROUD TO BEG"/The Temptations
"I SECOND THAT EMOTION"/Smokey Robinson
"TRACKS OF MY TEARS"/Smokey Robinson and The Miracles
