    Please restrict this to 1970's. Songs can be hit singles or just album tracks... even ones that did not appear on any LP at the time. Include title of song and artist, date if you feel up to it. I'm just trying to collate titles as I am trying to build a collection of them.

    Example:

    "I'M EASY" - 1975 - Keith Carradine (From NASHVILLE) Hit single is a re-recorded, up-tempo version with percussion. As heard in the film (and on the soundtrack LP) it is acoustic.

    Esoterica:

    "GETTING STRAIGHT" - 1970 - P.K. Limited. Released on the LP soundtrack.

    ...there are certainly hundreds like these...
    Thanks!

    Do the songs themselves have to be made in the 70's, or just songs that appeared in 70's movies?

    Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells - The Exorcist. (1973).

    Leonard Cohen - The Stranger Song from McCable and Mrs. Miller - 1971

    Rocky Horror Picture Show has a few (well I'm sick of the songs, but others seem to still like them).

    Good stuff so far.



    I'd prefer songs that were written especially for the movies they appear in, rather than popular songs from earlier just thrown in, as they do so often with movies (and t.v. commercials!) now.

    Thanks.

    Anyone remember Popcorn by Hot Butter? It was a goofy little instrumental electronic ditty that was used in about 15 to 20 films during the 70's.
    Here is a sample, just scroll down to the track listing, it is the first song.

    ....did I mention that it is goofy?[​IMG]
