Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith

Answer: Armageddon

"Armageddon" is the film starring Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck as oil well drillers who are tasked with going into space to destroy an asteroid that is threatening Earth. The plan is to rendezvous with the asteroid, dig to a specified depth, then drop a nuclear weapon in the hole, leave the asteroid, and detonate.

This song is featured as the love theme between AJ (Affleck) and Grace (Liv Tyler). Since there was a very real danger that he wouldn't return, the song takes on more meaning, as it was (possibly) their last moments together.
2. "Born to Be Wild" by Steppenwolf

Answer: Easy Rider

While this song has been featured in a TON of movies, most of the time when someone breaks character and shows outlaw behavior, "Born to Be Wild" was featured most prominently in "Easy Rider". Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, and Jack Nicholson set out on the road in the late '60s on choppers. They spend some time in a commune and meet some really interesting people in their travels.
3. "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News

Answer: Back to the Future

"Back to the Future" tells the story of Marty McFly, who inadvertently travels back in time to 1955. He sets in motion a series of events that threatens his very existence. Marty has to get his (then) teenaged parents to fall in love so that he will be born in the future. "The Power of Love" is in many scenes in the film, most notably when Marty is holding onto cars while riding his skateboard to school.

A brilliant moment is when Marty's band (The Pinheads) is auditioning for a spot in the Battle of the Bands and one of the judges stopped them in the middle of their audition (which was a hard rock version of "The Power of Love") and told them, "I'm afraid you're just too darn loud." The judge? Huey Lewis. See? Brilliant!
4. "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees

Answer: Saturday Night Fever

While it's hard not to think of other movies that have used "Staying Alive", usually when one of the characters is out looking for a good time, the most famous use of the song is the opening sequence in "Saturday Night Fever" where Tony Manero (John Travolta) is walking down the sidewalk, dressed in the heights of disco fashion.

The Bee Gees provided most of the music for the film, showing disco at its peak. Trying to get out of his working-class circumstances, Tony agrees to enter a disco dance contest with his new partner, Stephanie.
5. "Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Answer: Forrest Gump

As one of the most overused film songs, especially in films that are set in Vietnam-era times, "Fortunate Son" is featured in "Forrest Gump" when Forrest and Bubba first arrive in Vietnam. Since then, it's become a movie trope. If a movie or TV show features a scene in Vietnam, it's likely you'll hear this song somewhere in it. "Forrest Gump" follows the story of a mentally challenged man as he somehow ends up witnessing history, and sometimes, is involved in historical moments.

Some examples: He meets President Kennedy as a member of the college football All-America team; he unwittingly gives a speech at an anti-Vietnam rally in Washington, DC (while dressed in full uniform); and has a very young Elvis Presley staying at his mother's boarding house.

Despite the overuse of "Fortunate Son" in films, the soundtrack for "Forrest Gump" is one of the best I have heard.
6. "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel

Answer: The Graduate

"The Graduate" follows the adventures of recent college graduate Ben Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) and his flings with Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) and her daughter Elaine. Ben has a hard time deciding which relationship to pursue. Another heavily used movie song, "Mrs. Robinson" is often used when an older woman pursues a younger character.

The film also has one of the most iconic movie lines: "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. [she laughs at this] Aren't you?"
7. "Somebody's Baby" by Jackson Browne

Answer: Fast Times at Ridgemont High

"Somebody's Baby" might as well be titled "Stacy's Theme". While "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" follows many characters, it's Stacy's misadventures with guys where this song appears. Every time she has sex with another guy, the song plays. The movie shows what life was like in the early '80s, with all kinds of characters throughout: surfers/stoners, the awkward nerd who has a huge crush on Stacy (and his scumbag best friend who hooks up with her instead), the exasperated teacher who is convinced "everyone is on dope", the senior who is trying to become successful, and Stacy's best friend, who is in a long-distance relationship.

They all navigate many of the obstacles of being a teenager: the first date; working at businesses in the mall; dealing with strict teachers and their social lives. Look for an early performance by Sean Penn, who plays Jeff Spicoli, the stoner surfer who is just trying to cruise through high school. Spicoli steals every scene he's in.
8. "Tiny Dancer" by Elton John

Answer: Almost Famous

"Almost Famous" is the semi-autobiographical story of aspiring journalist William, a high school student who gets the opportunity go on tour with a rock band in the '70s and write about his experience for "Rolling Stone" magazine. Of course, there are the obligatory sex, drugs, and rock and roll scenes, but there is also a budding romance between William and Penny Lane (Kate Hudson).

The song "Tiny Dancer" is featured in the scene where everyone is traveling on the tour bus. The mood is sullen on the bus because they were trying to get the intoxicated leader singer of the band (Billy Crudup) on the bus.

He lashes out at William and causes a scene. Once on the bus, the song starts playing. One person starts singing the song and by the end of the scene, everyone is singing.

It's a classic scene!
9. "Let's Hear It for the Boy" by Deniece Williams

Answer: Footloose

Showing the dangers of blindly following misguided community leaders, "Footloose" follows the story of Ren McCormick (Kevin Bacon), a teenager from Chicago who moves in with his aunt and uncle in a small, rural town. Because of past tragedies, the self-proclaimed spiritual leader of the town, Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow) has helped establish laws against loud music and dancing. Ren clashes with officials in the town over the laws, eventually convincing the leaders of the town to allow them to hold a prom.

The song "Let's Hear It for the Boy" was the song playing during a montage where Ren is trying to teach his best friend Willard (Chris Penn) how to dance.
10. "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins

Answer: Top Gun

Even though Kenny Loggins songs have been featured in other films (like "Caddyshack"), it was "Top Gun" that prominently featured in "Danger Zone". The song really captures the feeling of speed and danger of fighter jets. "Top Gun" is the story of Maverick (Tom Cruise) and his Radar Intercept Officer, Goose (Anthony Edwards), who are chosen to go to the US Navy's Fighter Weapons School - commonly known as Top Gun.

While trying to be the best fighter pilot, Maverick doesn't count on falling in love with a civilian instructor (Kelly McGillis).
