So I was talking to my husband about this the other night. There have been a few songs that once they've been showcased in a movie or TV show I can't help but think of that movie or TV show whenever I hear the song again. Let's list them!
First and most obviously is "In Your Eyes" in the movie Say Anything. I can't hear that song without seeing Lloyd Dobler with the boombox above his head.
More recently is Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" in the Sopranos.
And very weirdly, whenever I hear "Swept Away" (or is it "Hard for me to say I'm sorry?" I'm not sure about the title) by Chicago I always think of a Growing Pains episode where they're on vacation and Kirk Cameron is in love with some girl and they play that song in the sunset.
