Just saw this thread and you guys have done a great job and hit a lot of the movies that have music associated with them. I wanted to add just a couple.
Beethoven's 9th and Ode to Joy: A Clockwork Orange
Chariots of Fire, IMHO, has one of the most associated iconic musical score written for the movie (same name: Chariots of Fire by Vangelis)
-- not that I like either the movie or the music but the association is branded into my soul.
The Godfather also has iconic music written for it: Speak Softly Love
Don't know if anyone has mentioned As Time Goes By for Casablanca
Star Wars has that omnipresent Darth Vader theme that is used in sports arenas
I Will Always Love You in The Bodyguard
Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing
Maniac from Flashdance
The Crying Game from The Crying Game
Stayin Alive from Saturday Night Fever
Ghostbusters from Ghostbusters
Its a bit obvious when some of the songs were named for the movie or the movie was named for a song.
