Best movie songs of the 80s: Nos. 41-60

13

October

Queen The march through the Top 80 movie songs of the '80s resumes today. Remember the goal: We sought the songs that immediately conjure up memories of the movie as soon as you hear those opening notes.

So far, the feedback has been ... well, predictably disapproving. "Come on Steve," uber-fan Bassnote wrote. "Show some love to John Waite!" (Dude, nobody loves the Waite-ster more than me! He's my bud, he's my pal!)

Today's big winner: The lads from Queen, who landed two songs on today's list. Plus, I've been listening to Queen: Live at Wembley as well.
