18 Popular Songs You Forgot Were Originally Written for Movies
“End of the Road” by Boyz II Men, Boomerang
In his heyday, Eddie Murphy made a lot of movies. It’s no surprise, then, that not all of them are particularly memorable. Boomerang is a fairly forgettable film, except for the fact that it gave us “End of the Road.”
This Boyz II Men song featured a soaring chorus. It’s the kind of soulful, quiet R&B that we don’t get very much of today. “End of the Road” is focused almost completely on the vocal harmonies of the group, and it became one of their most iconic songs. Most people don’t even realize that it was originally written for Eddie’s romantic comedy.
