— I ranked the version of the soundtrack WITHOUT the dialogue. I didn’t feel like sullying this list with Alec Baldwin’s presence.
— I ranked songs on bop-ability, importance in the context of the movie, whether or not Lady Gaga was on the track (I’m gay, of course all the Ally songs are better!), and off of my impeccable taste in general.
— There are two versions of “I’ll Never Love Again” on the soundtrack, but they’re pretty much the same, so I only counted it once on this list.
— THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. If you disagree, leave your bad opinions in the comments section below where I definitely won’t be reading them.
Rap impact: Clean, wholesome, and funny Hip-Hop, winning a Grammy but boycotting it because they wouldn’t televise it, Jaden, and “Summertime.”
Film impact: Bad Boys (1995), Independence Day (1996), Men in Black (1997), Wild Wild West (1999), Ali (2001), I, Robot (2004), Hitch (2005), The Pursuit of Happyness (2006), and I Am Legend (2007).
Madonna (not so) eloquently said in 2009, ““Into the Groove’ is another song I feel retarded singing, but everybody seems to like it.” In 2008, she told Z100 she would have to be paid $30 million to sing “Holiday” or “Like A Virgin” again. She said, “I’m not sure I can sing ‘Holiday’ or ‘Like a Virgin’ ever again. I just can’t, unless somebody paid me, like, $30 million or something.”
