Like actual songs? Or more of a composed score? I could honestly go all freaking day with movie music, so I'll restrict this post's selections to songs from Blaxploitation films, one of my favorite genres in film music.

The song that was so good, people didnt know it was written specifically for the movie:

Huey Lewis and The News - The Power of Love
Love this and I gotta add in their other original song for Back to the Future: Back in Time.

Also off the top of my head, any time I hear Oh Yeah I immediately think of Ferris Bueller. Such a catchy song haha

Edit: This movie is my favorite recent OST, both the score and licensed soundtrack. <3 Brie Larson covering Metric
