The disco classic "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge was released in September of 1979, right in the middle of baseball's pennant race. Willie Stargell, star of the Pittsburgh Pirates, claimed the song as an anthem for his team. The Pirates went on to win their division by two games, sweep the NLCS and beat the heavily-favored Orioles in the World Series in seven games. Memories of the '79 Pirates are forever inextricably linked to the song.
My own favorite use of the song is the opening shot of The Birdcage. Pure cinema magic:
