Top Fifteen Movie Songs 7/15

Top Fifteen Movie Songs 7/15 (in no particular order that I will admit to): 
07) "Shine"
Written and Performed by Martin Ansell
Courtesy of Island Records
Film: Better off Dead

First off, this is a very, very funny film.  It has a cool car, cute guys, cute girls and that uniquely '80 teen film lack of sensible film making.  Now, there are some really good songs in here that are hilarious because of their part of the movie.  "Everybody Wants Some" for example, with the clay-mation burgers dancing, Elizabeth Daily singing "A Little Luck", that whole break-up montage on the radio.  And there are other songs in here (original and not) that I really like at well, like "Arrested By You" and "Like To Get To Know You Well."

This one won out because it is happy and sunny and the scene is where the _foreign_ girl shown the local boy all the things he has been missing around him and taking for granted.  And '80 ski film.

I guess this is kind of a short one.  Not a lot to say about it, but it is one of my favourite films, and it is a great part of the film and it would not be the same without this song.

Take Care-
