You can't copyright a song name, so some movies use the fame a well known song title as their name.
We're not looking for songs that are written for a movie, but were songs before the movie was made. For example, "Pretty in Pink" was a song
years before John Hughes used it for the movie of the same name. "Ghostbusters" on the other hand, was written specifically for the movie.
