“The Call” was written by Regina Spektor for the Disney film, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and is featured in the film’s finale and ending credits.
“I’d been asked to write things before, and it always feels uninspired, wrong,” she explains. However, she continues, the moon looked a certain way when she stepped out of the private Caspian screening in midtown. She checked her voice mail, and her friends had cancelled the cocktails they were supposed to meet up for, so she walked all the way home, went straight to her piano, and discovered the tear-jerking chorus: “You’ll come back when it’s over/No need to say goodbye.” She sent a demo off to the folks at Disney, and three days later, she was flown first-class to London to record the song with a full orchestra for the movie’s finale sequence. “It was one of the most pure things that ever happened to me,” she says.
“Is Yor Love Strong Enough”. Written by Bryan Ferry ( Roxy Music ) for the Ridley Scott fantasy movie ‘Legend’ and released as a single in 1986. This extended version was available on the 12″ single and featured David Gilmour ( Pink Floyd ) on Guitar.
Sir Ridley Scott (born 30 November 1937) is an English film director and producer.

“Born to Be Wild” is a song first performed by the band Steppenwolf, written by Mars Bonfire. The song is often invoked in both popular and counter culture to denote a bikerappearance or attitude. It is sometimes described as the first heavy metal song, and the second verse lyric “heavy metal thunder” marks the first use of this term in rock music (although not as a description of a musical style).
