(Not included are the songs that became big hits before the release of the movie)
1. Kailangan Kita from the movie of the same title
Written for the Aga Muhlach-Claudine Baretto movie by Ogie Alcasid, Kailangan Kita was emotionally performed by Gary Valenciano. The movie, which became a big hit, had an equally-big theme song.

2. Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin from the movie Madrasta
Sharon Cuneta was Grandslam Best Actress for playing the role of a selfless stepmom in Madrasta. The movie’s theme song, sung by the megastar, Hanggang Kailan Kita Mamahalin perfectly captured the struggles of the main character.
The song is the theme song of currently-airing series The Legal Wife.
3. Kapag Ako Ay Nagmahal from the movie Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?
Jolina Magdangal’s sincere interpretation of the song Kapag Ako Ay Nagmahal made the song a modern classic, a hit among teenagers during the time the Jolina-Marvin Agustin movie was released.
4. Habambuhay from the movie Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo
The first movie of Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo, was a big hit. Its theme was Yeng Constantino’s Hawak Kamay, which was a hit prior to the release of the movie.
For the second installment Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo, Yeng was commissioned to write another song. The song was the hit Habambuhay.
5. You Are The One from the movie of the same title
