Name that tune

The feedback to my 80’s time killer was fun (online and off-line). Most often heard and read was “if I would have heard the song beforehand, I would have known more of them”. Here’s your shot. Below is one of the greatest songs of all time (in my humble opinion). It comes from one of the greatest movies of all time. It also, happens to be the movie of which I gained my nickname. Oops….I’ve probably said to much. I’m looking for the following:

1. The name of the song

2. The group that sang it

3. The movie it came from

4. The nickname I was given from said movie.

BONUS: Bonus if you can tell me when the song appeared in the movie.

Disclaimer: My wife, son and family are not allowed to play.

Let’s see who can put it all together. Good luck!

    MAN! I am going to have to “raise my game”. That was way too easy for you all. Mary gets the prize. Nice work by all.

    Anyone want to take a stab at the bonus question?

    Hold the phone….I just noticed an error in Mary’s response. It was 1986! I’m willing to overlook it though since I know she is a fellow 80’s child too!

    Sorry about that… Yes, I think Eric has made me watch all the classic 80’s movies about to many times. By the way, he told me what year I just put it in wrong. He is full of useless knowledge.
