When songs were bigger than their movies

Now That's What I Call Cheesy Movie Rock Ballads: Vol. 3
Your guide to the days when songs were bigger than their movies

Whether you’re partial to karaoke or merely bopping around the kitchen while doing the washing up, it takes a lot to beat a cheese-tacular movie rock ballad. You can’t admit to actually listening to or – god forbid – liking any of these songs in polite company, but we bet you still find yourself involuntarily singing along with lyrics that have inveigled their way into your subconscious. But here we thought we’d take a more forensic look at these tub-thumpers: were some really bigger than the movies that spawned them? And do the lyrics bear any relation to the film’s plots?

I remember all but three or four of them.  Most of those songs had videos that got a lot of play on MTV.  I used to be a frequent  MTV watcher.  A lot of them are sappy songs, but I like a few of them.
