Bede’s Top 50 Favourite Movie Songs – Part 2 (25-1)

Hey everyone! I’m back and welcome to the 2nd part of my top 50 favourite movie songs list. If you read the 1st part that I posted last week (which you can check out here), you would remember that I was going to do a countdown of my 50 favourite songs in celebration of the 200th edition of my Movie Song Of The Week column. In that one I covered songs 50 to 26 from the list. For this 2nd part I’ll be going through, of course, songs 25 to 1. I did get some pretty solid feedback for what I  chose for the 1st part, but I must admit that I’m very interested to hear what you’ll will all think of this 2nd half. If there is one thing for certain, I know that many of you will be quite surprised about which songs  made it into the top 25 (particularly what made the number 1 spot). What are they you ask? Well, you’ll have to read on and find out, so let’s get right into it! Here is 2nd and final part of my top 50 favourite movies songs list that goes over 25 to 1. Enjoy!
