Tune In Tuesday: Made for Movie Hits

Posted on October 21 2014

To set their film apart, many movie producers and their music directors seek the talent of musicians to create an original number for their soundtracks.
I picked seven of my top made-for-movie songs from the past few decades. You might be surprised that some of these tracks were made especially
for a movie so educate yourself and you may just find yourself watching these later on Netflix!
“Eye of the Tiger” Survivor for Rocky III (1982)
“Falling Slowly” Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova for Once (2006)
“I Believe I Can Fly” R. Kelly for Space Jam (1996)
“I’ve Had the Time of My Life” Bill Medley and Jennifer Warner for Dirty Dancing (1987)
“Mrs. Robinson” Simon & Garfunkel for The Graduate (1967)
“My Heart Will Go On” Celine Dion for Titanic (1997)
“Young & Beautiful” Lana Del Rey for The Great Gatsby (2013)
