Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" in Groundhog Day

Film Released: 1993

Ugh. The drudgery of crawling out of bed. The monotony of life itself. That fuzzy feeling when you drift out of slumber and arrive at the worst destination of all: Consciousness. Lucky for us, we can at least make our mornings a little brighter by getting one of those iPhone alarm clocks starting the day off with 2 Chainz.

Too bad for Phil Connors (Bill Murray). That technology didn't exist back then and he had to wake up to Sonny and Cher. What makes "I Got You Babe" such a great choice for remind Connor he's still stuck in own personal hell is that it's such a charming record—one even someone as cynical as Connor can appreciate. But if you heard it that many times, you'd want to throw a toaster in the bathtub, too.
