These days, a movie’s box-office success can often mean big sales for a soundtrack single. A recent Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart (Sept. 15) reveals these movie tunes going head-to-head with the likes of M.C. Hammer and Prince: The Righteous Brothers’ ”Unchained Melody,” a song that’s having a resurgence thanks to the phenomenal success of Ghost; Jon Bon Jovi’s ”Blaze of Glory” from Young Guns II; Go West’s ”King of Wishful Thinking” from Pretty Woman; and Billy Idol’s ”Cradle of Love” from The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.
