Issued as the soundtrack to the film of the same name, performed by The Beatles.

"Yellow Submarine" (originally a 1966 single and on Revolver)
"Only a Northern Song"
"All Together Now"
"Hey Bulldog"
"It's All Too Much"
"All You Need Is Love" (originally a 1967 single and on Magical Mystery Tour)

Only four new Beatles songs appeared on the album, and two were recorded specifically for the film; "All Together Now" and "Hey Bulldog". "Only a Northern Song" had been recorded during the sessions for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, but was set aside from the final running order. "It's All Too Much", like similar numbers recorded immediately following the Sgt. Pepper sessions, was not intended for a specific project.

Easy Rider (1969)
"Ballad of Easy Rider"
Performed by Roger McGuinn (The Byrds)
Composed by Roger McGuinn

The song was initially released in August 1969 on the Easy Rider soundtrack album as a Roger McGuinn solo performance. It was later issued in an alternate version as a single by McGuinn's band The Byrds on October 1, 1969, performed at a quicker tempo than the soundtrack version.

"It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)"
Performed by Roger McGuinn
Composed by Bob Dylan

Arguably the most widely known cover of the song is that performed by Roger McGuinn for the soundtrack of Easy Rider. Peter Fonda had originally intended to use Dylan's version of the song in the film but after failing to secure the appropriate licensing he asked McGuinn to record a cover of it instead.

Batman is the eleventh studio album by musician Prince and the soundtrack for the 1989 film Batman. As a Warner Bros. stablemate, Prince's involvement in the soundtrack was designed to leverage the media company's contract-bound talent as well as fulfill the artist's need for a commercial (if not critical) revival. The result was yet another multi-platinum successful cross-media enterprise by Warner Bros., in the vein of Purple Rain. The album was placed #1 on Billboard's album chart for six consecutive weeks. It sold nearly three million copies in the United States alone.

Simon had only one verse and the chorus for the movie. He hummed and la-la-la'd to fill in during the movie squence. He had to write the rest of the verses so he could record a completed song on the album.
