That's Why God Made the Movies
by Paul Simon
When I was born
My mother died
She said, 'Bye bye, baby, bye bye
I said, 'Where you goin'?
I'm just born
She said, 'I'll only be gone for a while'
My mother loved to leave in style
That's why God made the movies

My vote is Californication.

Also FYC (2 songs that fit but I don't like): Cinema- Skrillex and If We Were a Movie- Hannah Montana (inspired by Tswift's similarly titled song)

IF WE WERE A MOVIE, You'd be the right guy , and I'd be the best friend  , that you'd fall in love with  IN THE END WE'D BE LAUGHIN' , WATCHIN' THE SUNSET . Fade to BLACK , show the NAMES , play the happy SONG

What a great, thorough list! 'Tough choice. I'm so happy that Suzanne Vega's song is on the list. 

'Great job, Jen. : ) (Although that's nothing new; 'no surprise there, lol.)

Is it late to suggest Act Naturally by The Beatles?


They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And all I gotta do is act naturally

Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can never tell
The movies gonna make me a big star
'Cause I can play the part so well

Well I hope you come and see me in the movies
Then I know that you will plainly see
The biggest fool that ever hit the big time
And all I gotta do is act naturally
