In honor of the Oscars, we've ranked the biggest film songs to ever hit the Hot 100.
"Can't Help Falling In Love" - UB40
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (seven weeks), Peak Date: 7/24/1993
Elvis' original version of this song, which was featured in his movie "Blue Hawaii," hit No. 2 on the Hot 100 in 1962. Thirty-one years later, British reggae group UB40's version was featured on the soundtrack to the Sharon Stone thriller "Sliver." The remake bested Elvis by topping the Hot 100 for seven weeks.
"Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)" - Phil Collins
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (three weeks), Peak Date: 4/21/1984
When asked to provide a song for the Jeff Bridges flick "Against All Odds,"
Collins revisited this song, which he'd worked on during sessions for his 1981 solo debut, "Face Value." The finished track, which appeared on the film's 1984 soundtrack, and won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal, and earned an Oscar nomination.
"Footloose" - Kenny Loggins
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (three weeks), Peak Date: 3/31/1984
The soundtrack to this well-loved Kevin Bacon flick featured a number of hits, including Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out for a Hero" and Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It for the Boy," but the biggest was Kenny Loggins' title track.
"Separate Lives" - Phil Collins & Marilyn Martin
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1, Peak Date: 11/30/1985
the film "White Nights," which starred Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gregory Hines as dancers attempting to flee the Soviet Union. "Separate Lives" was nominated for an Oscar, but lost to another White Nights song, Lionel Richie's "Say You, Say Me."
"Crazy For You" - Madonna
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1, Peak Date: 5/11/1985
This "Vision Quest" hit came about when producers were looking for an appropriate song to use during a scene in which stars Matthew Modine and Linda Fiorentino meet at a club. Madonna's ballad "Crazy for You" was her second no. 1 single and her first song nominated for a Grammy.
"Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" - Christopher Cross
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (three weeks), Peak Date: 10/17/1981
Despite having a star in Liza Minnelli, Christopher Cross got the honors to perform the theme song for the Dudley Moore comedy "Arthur." Co-written by Burt Bacharach, the track – which literally rehashes the plot – won an Oscar and Golden Globe in 1981.
"I Wanna Sex You Up" - Color Me Badd
Hot 100 Peak Position: 2, Peak Date: 6/8/1991
It seems odd that this Oklahoma R&B group would have a hit featured gritty big city crack drama starring Wesley Snipes and Ice T, but strange things happen in "New Jack City." This mid-tempo jam rose to just shy of the top of the chart.
"To Sir With Love" - Lulu
Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (five weeks), Peak Date: 10/21/1967

Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (three weeks), Peak Date: 3/5/1977
In the film "A Star Is Born," Streisand plays an up-and-coming singer who meets a successful musician played by Kris Kristofferson.
