Matt Cord’s Top Five Songs in, Air!

The other night I was fortunate enough to be invited to a VIP early screening of the new movie, Air.

The film is based on how Nike approached Michael Jordan with an endorsement deal that would go on to change the way athletes are looked at and the business of sports in general alike.

The movie gave me a feel of movies of past generations where it just had a special feel to it, whereas many movies these days just lack substance.

I would highly recommend that everyone goes and checks it out in theaters at some point because it is definitely a movie worthy of seeing the old-fashioned way!

The plot was fantastic, the acting was award-winning caliber, and the cinematography was excellent, but there was another thing that really stuck out to me that took this movie to the next level.

And maybe it is because of my job in the music industry!

But one important thing I noticed was the score in the movie.

They had so many great songs playing at what seemed to be the perfect times.

Every song was perfectly placed within the plot, and every song they chose was a hit!

So I decided, why not make a top five list for the songs used in the movie, Air?

Although, I must admit that it was pretty challenging to narrow the list down to just five because there really were a ton of all-time songs included in the movie.

Hopefully, some of these songs take you down memory lane as many of them are throwbacks you could hear on any given day here on WMGK!

If you have seen the movie already and think I should have included another song on my list, let me know!

If you haven’t seen it but plan to, keep this list in mind and try to make one of your own!

Without further ado, here is my top five list!


The List…

  • Dire Straits - Money for Nothing

  • Cyndi Lauper - Time After Time

  • Night Ranger - Sister Christian

  • Mike & The Mechanics - All I Need Is A Miracle

  • Squeeze - Tempted
