    I'd put Wedding Singer up there on my short list. Not because I necessarily like every song, but because I thought it captured 80s pop music pretty well for the movie.

    From Wikipedia:

    7. "Everyday I Write the Book", performed by Elvis Costello
    8. "White Wedding", performed by Billy Idol
    9. "China Girl", performed by David Bowie
    10. "Blue Monday", performed by New Order
    11. "Pass the Dutchie", performed by Musical Youth
    12. "Have You Written Anything Lately?"
    13. "Somebody Kill Me", written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy, performed by Adam Sandler
    14. "Rapper's Delight" (medley), performed by Sugarhill Gang and Ellen Dow

    The track listing of the second album is:

    1. "Too Shy", performed by Kajagoogoo
    2. "It's All I Can Do", performed by The Cars
    3. "True", performed by Spandau Ballet
    4. "Space Age Love Song", performed by A Flock of Seagulls
    5. "Private Idaho", performed by The B-52's
    6. "Money (That's What I Want)", performed by Flying Lizards
    7. "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)", performed by Dead or Alive
    8. "Just Can't Get Enough", performed by Depeche Mode
    9. "Love Stinks", performed by The J. Geils Band
    10. "You Make My Dreams", performed by Hall & Oates
    11. "Holiday", performed by Madonna
    12. "Grow Old With You", written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy, performed by Adam Sandler

    Songs and renditions that appeared in the movie, but were not included in the soundtrack albums, were:

    * "Der Kommissar", performed by After the Fire
    * "99 Luftballons", performed by Nena
    * "Till There Was You", written by Meredith Willson, performed by Ellen Dow
    * "Don't Stop Believin'" (originally performed by Journey)
    * "Boys Don't Cry", performed by The Cure

    Harold and Maude came to mind as one of my favorites. All of the good Cat Steven's songs.
    Also Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
