Script written by Ryan Barnett.
The movie theme song is a strange beast: a good theme should marry well with its source material; a great theme song can go beyond its service to the film and enter into the zeitgeist, often prolonging the lifespan of the film in the memory of the audience and in extraordinary cases, even transcending its silver screen origins to find a place in day-to-day life. In this video, WatchMojo.com counts down our picks for the top 10 movie theme songs. For this list, we’ve decided to stick with pop songs that feature prominently in iconic films, and have chosen to leave out instrumental themes.
