This list was created by and in the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

The 80s really had a sound and it showed up in a lot of movies, yet some of the best soundtracks were filled with music from a previous generation. In later decades we will, of course, find movies that have memorable 80s music in them, as it seems to be the trend.
