Hey! try to say that title to this series of posts five times quickly, (it's hard ... but it's not the trivia) ...

OK, here's some fun ...

Name films that were made, due to the success of a song!

Now, I'm not including films that HAD a song as they're soundtrack, (for instance, "Love Is A many Splendored Thing"), that was made for the feature, but songs that EXISTED before the feature film, and then, because of the success of the song, they made a feature film in honor of the song ...

I can think of four from the 60's to the 70's alone ....

Harper Valley P.T.A.
Convoy
You Light Up My Life
Car Wash

What films can YOU come up with?
