Director Joel Schumacher has died at the age of 80.

Let's take this morning's Coffee Break to wade through some of the music that has surrounded his projects throughout the years - movies like "St. Elmo's Fire", "The Lost Boys" and "Falling Down", as well as two "Batman" films.

He also directed some high-profile music videos including Seal's "Kiss from a Rose", INXS' "Devil Inside" and the Smashing Pumpkins' "The End Is the Beginning Is the End".
