For I'll Do Anything, director James L. Brooks wanted to create something that hadn't been made in a while: a Hollywood musical. But test audiences, unable to grok the concept of Nick Nolte singing and dancing, reportedly gave a thumbs-down to the musical numbers. Too bad: The way we see it, more movies could use songs -- even if they're not written specifically for the film. Admit it, you'd pay to see the following.
*The Crying Game Dil (Jaye Davidson) interprets Chuck Berry's ''My Ding-a-Ling'' as a pensive ballad while Fergus (Stephen Rea) yelps the Who's ''Won't Get Fooled Again.''
*Jurassic Park Stuck in a blinding rainstorm, Drs. Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) and Grant (Sam Neill) await the arrival of T. rex with a peppy rendition of Tag Team's ''Whoomp! (There It Is).''
*Carlito's Way Penelope Ann Miller, as Gail, cautions Al Pacino's Carlito in a newly adapted version of Ben E. King's ''Spanish Harlem'': ''You'll come to blows in Spanish Harlem/Over drugs and ho's in Spanish Harlem.''
*What's Eating Gilbert Grape Gilbert (Johnny Depp) defends Mama (Darlene Cates) by warbling the Hollies' ''She Ain't Heavy, She's My Mother.''
*Grumpy Old Men Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon discuss their dentures in a charming duet of Simon & Garfunkel's ''Bridge Over Troubled Wattles.''
*The Piano Baines (Harvey Keitel) lustily sings out his love for Ada (Holly Hunter) with Simon & Garfunkel's ''The Sounds of Silence.'' In the film's sanguine climax Ada regains her voice to declaim Elton John's ''Love Lies Bleeding (In My Hand).''
*Weekend at Bernies II In discussing their deceased boss, Andrew McCarthy belts Foreigner's ''Cold as Ice'' while Jonathan Silverman intones Lynyrd Skynyrd's ''That Smell.'' Soundtrack available on Stiff Records.
