IMDb.com used to have an Advanced Search feature where I could type in a text search like "Paint It Black" in "Soundtracks" and it would list every Movie & TV Show that featured that song.

I've tried many variations of the new Advanced Search but can't replicate this feature. How do you accomplish this kind of search?

You could Google the song and get the name of who wrote it, then check the imdb credits for that name.  I went to Mick Jagger's page and searched the page for "Paint it Black" and it showed 50 hits on the page as "writer"

That is a valid response, and I thank you for it.

However, most songs will return thousands of results via Google. IMDb had this functionality since nearly inception (I've been a member since 1996), they have all the data, where did this functionality go?
