This list rounds up songs about movies. These movie songs aren't inspired by specific films or featured on soundtracks, but they're all about our fascination with cinema and the glamour of Hollywood. After all, movies and music are like peanut butter and jelly. Just as there are a ton of movies about music, there are also a ton of songs about movies. And why not? Songs are naturally cinematic, three minute stories that play out before your ears. So the next time you want to watch a movie, save yourself some time and throw on one of these songs about movies instead: All the drama in a fraction of the time.

“I’ve Seen That Movie Too” came from Elton John’s album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, definitely a cinematic record. “Pop Trash Movie” was first recorded by Blondie. Duran Duran’s version of the track later came out on their album Pop Trash. “If This Was A Movie” is a Taylor Swift track where she fantasizes about reuniting with an ex in an idealized fashion straight from the silver screen.

Which of these songs about movies would make your sizzle reel? Let the world know by voting up your favorite songs about film! And if there's any movie music that's not here even though you love it like hot buttered popcorn, then add it to the list before showtime!
