* BreakawayPopHit: it's appropriate that, alphabetically, this trope comes first, because the film's soundtrack is basically its most memorable aspect. Popular songs that debuted there include:
** "Iris" by Music/TheGooGooDolls
** "Uninvited" by Music/AlanisMorissette
** "Angel" by Music/SarahMcLachlan
