David Bowie did a version of PUTTING OUT FIRE WITH GASOLINE for CAT PEOPLE

wonderful tune

many movies have used existing songs for their soundtracks

One of Steven Seagal's lesser known films "The Fire Down Below" used this wonderful tune for the Film credits.




Risky Business gave Bob Seger's Career a boost

Everybody knows Ennio Morricone for the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, but I've always thought he was at his best in The Mission. Some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard.
