A MovieBonusSong must be:
# Featured in a film adaptation of a musical (and not be a CutSong)
# Written specifically for the film version, not carried over from the stage production or originating elsewhere (which excludes "From This Moment On" from ''Theatre/KissMeKate'', and "When All Is Said And Done" from ''Theatre/MammaMia'')
# Written by at least one of the original songwriters (which excludes songs such as "The Continental" from ''Film/TheGayDivorcee'', "You're The One That I Want" from ''Film/{{Grease}}'' and "I Will Always Love You" from ''The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas'')

Since Oscars are only given to songs ''written for the film'', this is often accused of being OscarBait, though the practice of writing {{Movie Bonus Song}}s dates back to the first generation of movie musicals, before the Original Song category existed. In recent times, the MovieBonusSong may sometimes be an AwardBaitSong, but the two are generally distinct tropes.

Liable to become RetCanon in future stage productions, if the movie version was successful.
* "Why Am I So Romantic?" from ''Theatre/AnimalCrackers''.
* "Let's Go to the Movies", "We Got Annie" (based on a CutSong), and "Sign" from the 1982 film version of ''Film/{{Annie|1982}}''. There's also an odd case in "Dumb Dog/Sandy", which recycled the melody of a song from composer Charles Strouse's flop ''A Broadway Musical''.
** [[Film/{{Annie2014}} The 2014 version]] adds a few more new songs, such as "Opportunity" and "Who Am I", while removing others partly due to the SettingUpdate to the present day and partly due to ValuesDissonance.
* If ''Film/TheBandWagon'' is considered as an adaptation of the 1931 revue of that name (which also featured Fred Astaire and several songs used in the movie), "That's Entertainment" would qualify as a MovieBonusSong.
* "Do It Yourself" from ''Theatre/BellsAreRinging''.
* "You're Lucky" and "Wish I May" from ''Best Foot Forward''.
* "The Greeks Have No Word For It" and "Who Are You" from ''The Boys From Syracuse''.
* The 1963 film version of ''Theatre/ByeByeBirdie'' added a title song to the musical, along with an alternate version of the oh-so-annoying "We Love You, Conrad" entitled "We Hate You, Conrad", which is sung by all the boys in town. The 1995 TV remake added several more of these: "Let's Settle Down," "A Mother Doesn't Matter Anymore" and "A Giant Step."
* "Mein Herr," "Maybe This Time" and "Money, Money" from ''Film/{{Cabaret}}''.
* "I Move On" from ''Film/{{Chicago}}''.
* "Surprise, Surprise" and "Let Me Dance For You" from ''Theatre/AChorusLine''.
* "When My Dreams Come True" from ''Film/TheCocoanuts'' appears to be the UrExample.
* "There's Something About An Empty Chair" from ''Theatre/DamnYankees''. (Written by Richard Adler alone, as Jerry Ross had suffered AuthorExistenceFailure.)
* "Love You I Do," "Patience," "Perfect World" and "Listen" from ''{{Theatre/Dreamgirls}}''.
* "You Must Love Me" from ''Film/{{Evita}}''.
* "Funny Girl" from ''Film/FunnyGirl''.
* "You've Got What Gets Me" from the 1932 film version of ''Girl Crazy'' -- though the song is nearly as obscure as the movie, it's the only MovieBonusSong ever written by George and Ira Gershwin.
* "Beautiful City" from ''{{Theatre/Godspell}}''.
* "Pet Me, Poppa," "Adelaide" and "A Woman In Love" from ''Theatre/GuysAndDolls''.
* "Ladies' Choice" and "Come So Far (Got So Far to Go)" from ''Film/{{Hairspray}}''.
* "Just Leave Everything To Me" and "Love Is Only Love" from ''Film/HelloDolly''.
* "I Wish It Could Be Otherwise" (originally a CutSong) from ''Theatre/LilAbner''.
* The film version of ''Theatre/ALittleNightMusic'' has "Love Takes Time" (mostly "Night Waltz" with new lyrics) and "The Glamorous Life" (same title but almost entirely rewritten as a Fredrika solo).
* "Some Fun Now" (which only barely counts - it's heavily based on the cut song "Ya Never Know") and "Mean Green Mother From Outer Space" from ''Film/LittleShopOfHorrors''.
* "Loving You" from ''Mame''.
* "Being In Love" from ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'' directly replaced "My White Knight," though the middle section (actually a remnant of a CutSong) was unchanged.
* Three of 'em in ''Theatre/NineMusical": "Cinema Italiano" (a solo for Stephanie), "Guarda la Luna" (replacing the titular song; based on the "Waltz For Nine" instrumental), and "Take It All" (replacing "Be On Your Own").
* "Love with All the Trimmings" and "Go to Sleep" from ''Theatre/OnAClearDayYouCanSeeForever''. These additions sound much more like contemporary pop songs than the original score, yet were written by the same songwriters.
* "Prehistoric Man," "Main Street," "You're Awful," "On The Town," "Count On Me" and "That's All There Is, Folks" from ''Theatre/OnTheTown''. MGM teamed the show's original writers Creator/ComdenAndGreen with Roger Edens to replace most of Bernstein's songs so their publisher could own most of the score.
** Basically a "Movie Bonus Score," all but "New York, New York," "Come Up to My Place," and a few instrumental pieces were cut from the stage version.
* "Don't Look Now" from ''Theatre/OneTouchOfVenus'', which is actually just "Foolish Heart" with new lyrics. ("West Wind" from the original show was similarly converted into "My Week," but then cut from the movie. There would have been more {{Movie Bonus Song}}s if not for dreadful amounts of ExecutiveMeddling which drove Kurt Weill from the production.)
* "The First Thing You Know," "A Million Miles Away Behind The Door," "The Gospel Of No Name City," "Best Things" and "Gold Fever" from ''Film/PaintYourWagon''. All of these were written by Alan Jay Lerner to music by André Previn. Frederick Loewe was not involved.
* "You'll Find Your Happiness in Rio" (written for the stage version but cut) and "There's Nothing Like a Show on Broadway" from the 2005 film version of ''Film/TheProducers''.
* "Lovely To Look At" and "I Won't Dance" from ''Roberta''. (The latter was a substantial rewrite of a song written for the obscure London musical ''Three Sisters''.)
* "I Have The Room Above Her," "Gallivantin' Around" and "Ah Still Suits Me" from the 1936 film version of ''Theatre/ShowBoat''.
* "Fated To Be Mated" and "The Ritz Roll And Rock" from ''Silk Stockings''.
* "I Have Confidence" and "Something Good" from ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''. (Both were written by Rodgers alone, due to Hammerstein's AuthorExistenceFailure.)
* "More Than Just A Friend," "Never Say No To A Man," "Willing And Eager," "This Isn't Heaven" and "The Little Things In Texas" from the 1962 version of ''Film/StateFair'' -- a remake of the 1945 movie musical, not an adaptation of a Broadway show. (These songs were also written by Rodgers after Hammerstein's death.)
* "My Personal Property," "It's a Nice Face," and a new title song in the film version of ''Theatre/SweetCharity''.
* "What Does He Look Like (That Boy Of Mine)?" from Irving Berlin's ''This Is the Army''. The stage show had featured an all-male cast, but the movie needed a number for a GlamorousWartimeSinger, in this case Frances Langford.
* "You're Nearer" from ''Theatre/TooManyGirls'', though it was inserted into the show's post-Broadway tour before the movie was released.
* "He's My Friend" from ''The Unsinkable Molly Brown''.
* "My Baby Just Cares For Me" was one of several from ''Whoopee!''.
* "Then We Are Decided" and "Could We Start Again Please?" from the 1973 film version of ''Film/JesusChristSuperstar''.
* Notably averted in ''Theatre/MammaMia''. Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson were asked to write an original song for the film and blankly refused.
* "Learn to be Lonely" from ''Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera2004''. The Phantom was meant to sing another song with the same melody, called "No One Would Listen", but that scene was cut from the film. You can find it on the DVD though. So this is a case of both Movie Bonus Song and CutSong. Or something.
* "When the Tigers Broke Free" from ''Film/TheWall''.
* A few of them in the 1975 film version of ''Film/{{Tommy}}'': "Bernie's Holiday Camp", "Extra Extra" ([[InTheStyleOf set to the tune of "Miracle Cure"]]), "Champagne", "Mother and Son", and "TV Studio".
** Although not Movie Bonuses, a few new songs are included in the musical: "We've Won", "I Believe My Own Eyes", and "Sally's Question".
* ''Film/LesMiserables2012'', the film version of [[Theatre/LesMiserables the musical]], includes a new song called "Suddenly", written by Claude-Michel Schonberg.
* Inverted in the stage adaptation of ''Film/TopHat'' that included a couple more songs by the original composer, Ivring Berlin, such as "Let's Face The Music And Dance".
* ''Film/BeautyAndTheBeast2017'' features three of these written by original composer Alan Menken -- as opposed to expanding the score with songs from the Broadway version. They are "How Does A Moment Last Forever" (two versions with completely different lyrics are used; one sung by Maurice and one sung by Belle), "Days in the Sun" (the Enchanted Objects), and "Evermore" (The Beast).
