    A friend and I were argueing about this for the last hour.

    Song A - Reprised at least 5 times, the entire plot is based on the last line of the song, that line is repeated a few times in script
    Song B - Contains title of the MOVIE (a location), it got popular because of the 3 famous singers, and is in the opening number

    a song being played at the start of a show/programme/etc

    and id say a song has to have words, whereas a theme tune is instrumental

    both contain lyrics.

    Song A - the entire movie's existance is based on the final line of the song

    Song B - the title of the movie, but is not titled "the theme to..."

    Kudos to anyone who guesses the movie.

    I don't think I've ever watched a musical, because they incense me .
