Your Favorite Songs Used In Movies
« on: October 20, 2012, 11:33:23 PM »

I ordinarily don't care much for disco, but Laura Branigan sang this song so well...

Gloria

Laura Branigan - Gloria (HQ 1080p HD Upscale)




It was used for Jeanie's skating scene in Flashdance...

Flashdance (1983) - Jeanie's Skate Scene




Tragically, both Laura Branigan and Sunny Johnson, who played Jeanie, died due to ruptured brain aneurysms.

I always loved this little part of Dazed and Confused. Ironically, it didnt make the soundtrack.
