Movie Theme Songs can really make a movie. You have to wonder, for instance, if Titanic would have been the same without its amazing theme song. More often than not, films with the best movie theme songs do better than flicks with awful music, because soundtracks speak to the audience just as much as plot lines and dialogue. Take a look at some of the most incredibly moving movie theme songs and see if you don't agree!
1. “Uninvited,” by Alanis Morissette, for City of Angels
City of Angels had an absolutely incredible soundtrack, and although the Goo Goo Dolls have my favorite, “Uninvited” is one of the most touching movie theme songs ever.
I love “Iris,” but it doesn't make me tear up nearly as much as this song.
I think the slow, haunting beat is just as responsible for its popularity as the lyrics.
