It is like the question of the chicken and the egg. What came first? The film or the song?

For example, the film "Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs," gave rise to the song "Who Woke Snow White Up?" by the Baha Men, but if the song came first, we have . . . (not necessarily named after the song, but inspiring the film . . .)

Song: The Ballad of the Green Berets
Film: The Green Berets

Song: Waltzing Matilda
Film: The Man from Snowy River

Song: I Walk the Line
Film: Same title


Song: The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
Film: The Ballad of Virgil Cane

Song: We are the Champions
Film: The Mighty Ducks and its sequels

Song: She Wore An Yellow Ribbon
Film: Same title

Song: Go! Speedracer! Go!
Film: Speedracer
(Also credit the animated series)

Song: Grandma Got Run Over by A Reindeer
Film: Same
(TV  movie)

Ozzymandias speaks: Roy Rogers introduced the song "Don't Fence Me In" in a musical called Hollywood Canteen. It was so popular that Republic built a movie around it in 1945 with Gabby Hayes as Wildcat Kelly, the outlaw mentioned in the lyrics.

Best part is the first part of the film. Dale Evans plays a investigative report disguised a "dancing girl" at a mob party. She dances on a table in a skimpy outfit with fishnet hose. Dale was HOT in those days. hot

Ozzymandias speaks: This song from 1964 spawned a gender bender film of the 90's.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
