This movie’s music moved audiences across the nation. Business Insider ranks the Dirty Dancing soundtrack as the fifth best-selling of all time with over 30 million copies sold and spending 18 weeks at number one. “She’s Like the Wind” and “Hungry Eyes” were chart-toppers, but the Jennifer Warnes and Bill Medley hit, “The Time of My Life,” was a certifiable smash. It won several awards, including the Academy Award for best song. Just hearing it makes you think of Swayze’s Johnny Castle saying “Nobody puts Baby in the corner,” then lifting Grey up in the legendary dance move from the film’s end. These are the movies that get your toes tapping.
