Listen to my Movie Soundtrack Playlist! Sunday Song Share

Movie Soundtrack

Welcome to Week Two of Sunday Song Share. Catch up on last week’s list – Girl Power! I have added the songs to a Youtube Playlist as well!

Sunday Song Share – Movie Soundtracks

This week we are heading to the Movies! I was inspired after reading Miranda Hart’s Daily Dose of Such Fun! and one was to play ‘Good Morning’ from Singin’ in the Rain, tap dancing is optional. I did it the other morning in the staff room to varying levels of success. This week’s playlist therefore is focused on Happy Movie Songs.

Movie Soundtrack

Good Morning – Singing in the Rain

This song is perfect at making people happy. I have been singing it all day! It’s a toe tapping, dance like you don’t care song!

Misirlou – Pulp Fiction

Say what you want about Tarantino’s films –  the music in them is always amazing!

Streets of Philadelphia – Philadelphia

I find this song inspiring. I often listen to it on the bus and daze into the distance. It’s a contemplating life kind of song.

I Can see Clearly Now – Cool Runnings

Cool Runnings is such a feel good film. I only saw it for the first time last year and loved it!

Be My Baby – Dirty Dancing

I just have to hear the first drumbeat and I am in love with Johnny Castle all over again. I recently was listening to Noel Gallagher’s Desert Island Disc. He had this as his first dance, that would have been cool.

Honey Honey – Mamma Mia

I’ve seen the stage show twice and the movie too many times. It is so happy and silly its brilliant.

Welcome to the 60’s – Hairspray

Again the stage show is also amazing! It was hard to pick a song from this movie too!

You’re the One That I Want and Greased Lightning- Grease

Okay this is the best musical ever so we need two! I probably could have put all the songs in here.

Eye of the Tiger – Rocky

When you need a wee pick me up in the middle of the day.

Blue Shade Shoes – Blue Suede Shoes

If you haven’t watched Elvis’ films put it on your to-do list!

Son of a Preacher Man – Pulp Fiction

Okay Another Pulp Fiction song. That is another film full of great songs!

Let’s Stay Together – How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Getting away with a third Pulp Fiction song as it was actually in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days too!

Bang Bang – Kill Bill

Such a good song! And Film!

Wouldn’t it be Nice – 50 First Dates

I love this song. It was nearly our first dance at our wedding. I think it is on our wedding DVD at one point.

All Day and All Night – The Boat That Rocked

I couldn’t help but be disappointed in this movie. The soundtrack however is wonderful.

Footloose – Footloose

This is a toe tapping line dancing film. This is one of the few films that the remake is actually just as good as the original. I also love Let’s Hear It for the Boy.

Simon and Garfunkel – Mrs Robinson

If you have not seen The Graduate – I want you to stop doing what you are doing, stop reading this post and go put it on.

Lust for Life -Trainspotting

Every time I hear this song I am immediately reminded of Ewan McGregor.

Independant Women – Charlie’s Angels

If you’ve never taken a picture with two of your pals pretending to be Charlie’s Angels… then what have you been up to?

Fame – Fame

Yes! Fetch me some tap shoes and leg warmers!

Star Wars Theme – Star Wars

Again if you are having a rubbish morning and need motivation. This is the song for you.

This is just a taster of some of the songs; I’ve also added Disney songs, Moulin Rouge and La La Land.

I will add more and more songs to the playlist as they come to me so keep checking back, commenting some suggestions  and giving feedback.

Listen to my Girl Power Playlist – Sunday Song Share

girl power


Welcome to ‘Sunday Song Share” series.  Join me each week as I share a playlist based on different themes. The playlist is available on Amazon Music. I look forward to hearing what you think and any other suggestions for songs to add to the list!

Girl Power!

This week we are celebrating all things female and so what better a place to start than a playlist with some great female vocalists. This list will keep growing as I remember some more great songs!

Some highlights in the playlist include…

Lady Gaga and Beyonce – Telephone

This was one of the greatest collabs! Admit it we all wish we could pull off the coke can rollers like the video!

Laura Mvula- Phenomenal Woman

I love Laura Mvula – this whole album is incredible. But this song made sense to choose for this list.

Whitney Houston – Million Dollar Bill

The first of two Whitney Houston songs. This woman is so incredible she deserves a playlist to her self. That’s why she’s getting two! This is an excellent song that always gets me dancing!

Whitney Houston – How Will I Know

Again there were so many Whitney songs I could have chosen but this one I feel is often overlooked but a classic!

Madonna – Music

Madonna again could have a whole playlist.  This one stands out for me purely based on the video with Ali G. Not sure why that was a thing but it was brilliant!

Ellie Goulding – Anything Could Happen

I love Ellie Goulding so much! Her voice is incredible. I think her last album was the last proper CD I went out and bought. I knew it would be a perfect car CD.

Cher – Believe

This is still such a major tune! Cher still has it!

Jennifer Lopez – If You Had My Love

Ah Jenny from the Block! Remember Maid in Manhattan now that was a film! I had this on single!

Britney Feat Madonna – Me Against the Music

True Story I once won a holiday dancing to this song.

Texas – I Don’t Want a Lover

Hands Down one of the best gigs I have ever been to was Texas. I have such a crush on Sharleen Spitterri.

The Pretenders – Don’t Get Me Wrong

In the movie of my life, I want this song playing over the opening credits. I just love it!

Okay so rather than me going through all the songs on this list, just go ahead and listen to it! It’s a great sing-a-long car playlist!
