With Ellie Goulding at number one with the song from the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Of Grey. I have been thinking how many big hits from the last ten years can we name that have been taken from a movie soundtrack. Songs written or recorded specifically for inclusion in a film rather than songs added to film soundtracks long after they'd been written / recorded. I can name two straight off, anyone think of any others?

Happy - Indespicle me 2

Let It Go - Frozen

I'm still highly shocked that "Breaking Free" reached the top 10 to begin with.

Also "Elastic Heart" was in the Catching Fire soundtrack before it became a hit.

Muse - Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) from I forget which Twilight film, and Linkin Park - What I've Done & New Divide from I forget which Transformers films.

Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

Should that count when Sweet Disposition came out a year before the movie?

Another question...how many of these songs have become Platinum? Or become million-sellers?
