* For great justice, the ''Film/SpaceJam'' soundtrack makes the cut. Music/RKelly's "[[AwardBaitSong I Believe I Can Fly]]" is today largely assumed by younger basketball fans to have been written to celebrate UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan's career. Likewise, a lot of people like Music/{{Seal}}'s cover version of "Fly Like an Eagle" as well as Monica's "For You, I Will", a surprisingly actually heartwarming song written by the otherwise not-so-well-liked Diane Warren. Meanwhile, the movie is remembered for being a spectacular BaseBreaker. Once again, music videos never forget: WesternAnimation/BugsBunny has a cameo in each of them ("Fly Like An Eagle" is itself a VideoFullOfFilmClips).

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzsiE44Lz_w Late Goodbye]]", by Finnish rock group Music/PoetsOfTheFall, was originally recorded for ''VideoGame/MaxPayne2TheFallOfMaxPayne'' and based on a poem written by the game's lead writer after a dream he once had. The game itself didn't sell too well, despite being critically loved and developing an almost cult status, but the song wound up becoming the band's breakout hit, both in Finland and abroad.

* The film ''Film/{{Gothika}}'' was successful upon release. But it is nowhere near as famous (well, maybe notorious is a better word here) as the song recorded for the film: LimpBizkit's cover of "[[TheWho Behind Blue Eyes]]".
