question of the day: What are the best pop songs ABOUT movies?

Help me create a new playlist on my iPod:

What are the best pop songs about movies?

I’m thinking about songs that mention particular movies or just a love of the movies in general. A few examples I really like:

“Pencil-Thin Moustache” by Jimmy Buffett:

Oh I wish I had a pencil-thin moustache
the Boston Blackie kind
a two-tone Ricky Ricardo jacket
and an autographed picture of Andy Devine…

Or “Life on Mars” by David Bowie

And she’s hooked to the silver screen

But I can’t think of all of them. Gimme some more.

FYI: I’m not thinking, by the way, about songs from movies or associated with movies, like Ray Parker Jr.’s Ghostbusters theme or Celion Dion singing about her heart going on as featured in Titanic. But save those ideas for tomorrow’s QOTD.

(If you have a suggestion for a QOTD, feel free to email me. Responses to this QOTD sent by email will be ignored; please post your responses here.)
