Re: Songs from movies on the acclaimed music list

Somewhat related to this, I've often wondered how much songs like "Miserlou" and "Across 110th Street" have been boosted by their inclusion in movies decades after their original release.

I'm surprised it's only bubbling...it's a pretty good song. Then again, most of her songs are underrated on the site.
