10. Who framed Roger Rabbit in 1988
The sensual and vicious wife of the main character Roger Rabbit languidly sang this song, causing a stormy delight not only from the detective performed by Bob Hoskins, but also from the fascinated viewer (we hope you were already at least 10 years old when you watched this erotic scene).

“Sea of Love” is a crime thriller with the magnificent Al Pacino, in which the vicious sexual tension magically intertwines with the thick and deep voice of Tom Waits.

Well, who doesn’t want to take an unscheduled day off? So the main character of this light comedy – a freedom-loving schoolboy Ferris-decides that it’s time to take a break. Instead of boring lessons, he will spend a nice day with friends and even get into various comical and not very situations and scrapes. By the way, you might have heard this same song in another favourite comedy from the 80s – “K9: Dog Work”.
