To all our movie fanatics and music lovers, join us as we take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of the most iconic movie songs that have made us dance, tear up and sing our hearts out. Whether you're a die-hard film enthusiast or just someone who enjoys a good tune, these are some classics that will surely strike a chord with you.

1. "See you again'" - Wiz Khalifa ft Charlie Puth (from "Furious 7")

When "See You Again" played during the film's closing scene, emotions ran high in theatres around the world. The view of Vin Diesel's character, Dominic Toretto, and Paul Walker's character driving side by side one last time, left many in tears. It was a touching farewell to both the character and the actor, and it felt deeply personal to the fans who had grown up watching Paul Walker in the Fast & Furious series.

2. "Don't You (Forget About Me)" - Simple Minds (from "The Breakfast Club")

The song was written specifically for the movie and the band Simple Minds covered it for the final soundtrack. The song's lyrics reflect the characters' individual struggles and their collective journey of self-discovery. This universal appeal has allowed the song to transcend its '80s origins, making it relevant to each new generation of listeners.

3. "(I've had) The time of my life" - Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes (from "Dirty Dancing")

Who can forget when Patrick Swayze first showed up on our screen as a boy from the wrong part of town and danced his way through our hearts. This classic from "Dirty Dancing" is pure nostalgia, and it makes us want to grab a partner and attempt Baby’s iconic lift on the dance floor.

4. "May I Have This Dance" - Francis and the Lights (from "Always be my maybe")

The moment when "May I Have This Dance" takes center stage is during a spontaneous dance sequence in the movie. The lyrics, with lines like "If you let me, darling, I could be the one" mirror the sentiments Sasha and Marcus have kept hidden for years for one another.

5. "Heathens" - Twenty one pilots (from "Suicide Squad (2016)")

Lyrically, "Heathens" dives into the psychology of being an outsider or a misfit, a theme that resonates strongly with the film's band of misfit antiheroes. The lyrics speak of the feelings of alienation, fear, and uncertainty that often accompany those who don't quite fit into society's norms. "Heathens" quickly became a chart-topping hit for Twenty One Pilots. It reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and became a staple on radio stations and playlists.

6. "Let it go" - Demi Levato (from "Frozen")

One of the standout moments in the film “Frozen” was undoubtedly the song "Let It Go," performed by Demi Lovato. It became an anthem of empowerment and self-discovery. The song's lyrics encourage listeners to embrace their true selves, let go of fear and expectations, and stand proudly in their uniqueness.

7. "The Phantom of the Opera" - Sarah Brightman and Steve Harley ("The Phantom of the Opera" (2004))

"The Phantom of the Opera" remains a timeless classic in the world of musical theatre, and Sarah Brightman and Steve Harley's duet in the 2004 movie adaptation is a shining example of its enduring draw. Sarah Brightman, who sang it in the film, actually played the same role in the stage version way back in 1986. So, when she came back to sing it in the movie, it felt like a cool blast from the past for fans who'd known the story for years.
