6. Bon Jovi - Always
The band opted not to lend the song to the producers because the film Romeo Is Bleeding, for which the music was initially created, needed to be better received. Before a friend discovered the song and persuaded him to include it on the band's compilation album, Cross Road, Bon Jovi put the song on his shelf and promptly forgot about it. It quickly rose to the top of the singer's best-selling single list, selling more than three million copies globally.
