The Top Uses of Pat Benatar Songs in Movies

Pat Benatar is a legend in the music industry. It doesn’t matter if you like her music or not, she’s proven herself to be one of the most influential and long-lasting sounds to date. When the tally is taken and the greatest sounds are gathered up into a single album you’ll find at least a few of her tracks in there where they belong. Yes, that was a shameless plug but it had to be done. Even the current generation can admit that her music is still extremely relevant to this day and age, and that’s part of what makes her so great.

As to her songs, there’s a great many ways to put them in movies, as you’ll see below.

5. Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby – We Belong

Will Farrell’s movies are known for taking inspirational songs and putting them in the strangest places. Fans of the comedian will agree that this was probably the best placement for this particular song since the Ballad of Ricky Bobby is kind of ridiculous in a fun and endearing way. Having the two men race one another to the finish line is kind of interesting considering that without your car you can’t really win the race.

4. 13 Going On 30 – Love is A Battlefield 

There’s nothing quite like reliving your youth, especially when some magic wishing powder kind of took almost two decades of it away.  A lot of us would probably like to keep the innocence we had as kids and transport it to the adults we are today. This film shows that growing up too fast isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Being a kid is sometimes just too important to let things slip by so fast.

3. The Italian Job – Heartbreaker

Of all the roles he’s played this one seems to fit Jason Statham quite well. A cocky, British wheel man that knows he’s awesome and doesn’t try to hide the fact, Statham is still the kind of guy you want watching your back when the situation gets real. Well apart from his other roles as a bonafide butt-kicker, he actually charms his way into this role with ease. Plus it makes a convincing part in a very organized bunch of criminals.

2. The Legend of Billie Jean – Invincible

The moment you give adolescents a chance to rebel they will take it. And more than that, if they have a good reason to do so then it becomes a parent’s and every adults nightmare because quite truthfully a rebellious teenager is one thing. A bunch of them rebelling at once is another. That’s not what the whole movie is about, but the stand that Billie Jean takes is strong enough that it’s no wonder that she gains followers to her cause as she continues to elude the police.

1. An Officer and A Gentleman – Treat Me Right

This is proof that you need more than just an attitude and a uniform to be a real person. Gere’s character learns through several hard and even humiliating lessons that life is about more than what you can get from others. It’s about what you can do for others in return for what they’re willing to give.

Pat Benatar wrote songs that inspired a nation at a time when such a thing was seriously flagging. Her music to this day still inspires a lot of people just as it was meant to.
