The movie: Space Jam
The song: 'I Believe I Can Fly', R. Kelly

It seems altogether silly that such an earnest song was recorded for such a ridiculous movie, but there you have it. And the combination was no coincidence, Kelly was actually inspired by the Michael Jordan/Bugs Bunny romp, and told Rolling Stone: "I studied it and I prayed over it because I wanted the best thing to come out of it."

Bonus knowledge: Legend has it that The Notorious B.I.G. got a preview of the song while R. Kelly was writing and was hypnotised, telling the singer: 'That's a big hit, son.'
