"The Way You Look Tonight"

1938's winner, from, fittingly, The Big Broadcast of 1938, would go on to become the signature song of Bob Hope, who sang it in the film. (Note: Because we're not here to be jerks, we will accept both the original title, or the version of the title that eventually it morphed into.)

The 1956 winner comes from a Hitchcock film, would later serve as the signature song of Doris Day, and would be sung by Ned Flanders as Bart's Comet threatened to destroy Springfield.

The 1959 winner from the film A Hole in the Head would be repurposed by Frank Sinatra the next year as John F. Kennedy's campaign theme song.

"(Love Lift Us) Up Where We Belong" (edited at 8:04 pm, April 6, 2016 (PDT))

While Lionel Richie was nominated for "Miss Celie's Blues (Sister)" and Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin's "Separate Lives" from White Nights was also nominated, the Venn overlap of Lionel Richie song nominated from White Nights actually won the 1985 award. (Which is a curious thing, since it beat out "The Power of Love" as well.)

Click to Reveal Answer
"Say You, Say Me"

Though Alan Menken and Howard Ashman were nominated for "Kiss the Girl" as well, this 1989 winner from The Little Mermaid is actually based on "The Beautiful Briny" from 1971's Bedknobs and Broomsticks
