The All Time Greatest Movie Songs

The All Time Greatest Movie Songs


Now, here's an album title to conjure with! What could The All Time Greatest Movie Songs be? Let's see, if we go by the most popular songs ever heard in the movies, we'd be talking about "White Christmas," "I Will Always Love You," "The Third Man Theme," "Cheek to Cheek," and "Buttons and Bows," to cite the longest running number one hits. Are any of those here? No. Well, OK, how about "greatest" as in "best," say, for example, Oscar winners like "Over the Rainbow," "All the Way," "Moon River," "The Way We Were," and "(I've Had) The Time of My Life"? Any of those here? Nope. OK, we give up. What are the all-time greatest movie songs? As it turns out, they are (with one, licensed exception) all songs that happen to be under the control of Sony Music and (with one exception) all songs from movies of the 1990s. Granted, there are some big hits and Oscar winners here, starting with Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" and including Bruce Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" and Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle's "A Whole New World," and some of Sony's biggest stars of the moment, including Will Smith, Lauryn Hill, and Babyface, as well as blue-chip talents like Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, and Michael Jackson, are represented. But that title could only have been conceived by a marketing staff as ignorant as it is arrogant.
