Let's replace all these with Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. I'm not being ironic.
Eric Allen (3 days ago)
Except when you said "Somebody to Love", you definitely played a movie clip with "White Rabbit" playing in the background.

Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin, Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen, Time in a Bottle - Jim Croce, Carry on Wayward Son - Kansas, Eye of the Tiger - Survivor, Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival, O-o-h Child - Five Stairsteps, Why Can't We Be Friends and Low Rider - WAR, and Spirit in The Sky - Norman Greenbaum. Easily found on IMDB. Spirit in the Sky has 78 credits (3 were for I Don't Care) there is no way you didn't even give it an honorable mention. Not saying these are epic songs, that's why they use them, but they are in a ton of movies/tv shows. You really should have made this a two or three parter.

The Power by Snap! is in over 50 movies and t.v. shows (not including commercials). Might be slightly overused.🤔

IAMTHEICEMAN (18 days ago)
Even though you said no classical stuff, Mozart's Lacrimosa is fucking EVERYWHERE. For those of you who don't recognize the name, it's this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1-TrAvp_xs

Exo_The_Flask (18 days ago)

Stephen Kale (19 days ago)
I found it extremely sad and stereotypical that Hollywood only knows Sweet Home Alabama to represent the South, which they constantly make fun of. They can find better ways of representing the South and Southern Ways

Dude Looks Like a Lady is in a million things. And, yes, Fortunate Son and I Feel Good for sure. I think the top Motown classics should bet a collective slot.

Hmmm Spirit in the Sky seems like a pretty big oversight, but maybe that's just credits and trailers. I also like how in the honorable mentions it has Somebody to Love and it's playing White Rabbit
