I love movies. I love soundtracks. Put them together and I have a huge database of useless information in my head. What better way of using that knowledge than to test yours! Here are some songs that are included in movie soundtracks. They’re not obscure songs in the movie, they are an integral part of it.
Come up with as many answers as you can… I know some songs have been in multiple films so with reference checking I’ll see if it qualifies. The winner gets a copy of my husband’s newly released CD (via snail mail or email), bragging rights, and a nice little post announcing you the winner.
Email me your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
Email me your answers by 4/20 and I’ll post the results here. Happy playing!
