What unusual distinction is shared by these songs?

"The Twist" by Chubby Checker
"Do You Love Me" by The Contours
"Into the Night" by Benny Mardones
"Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers
"Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen

Do you know of any others?

The first three are definitely correct. The last two expand the category slightly, but it's still a pretty exclusive club.

Yes, exactly.

Answer:

Each of the songs charted on the Billboard Top 100 twice. "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Unchained Melody" became popular again when they were featured in movies. "I WIll Always Love You" came back when Whitney Houston died, and so on.

Spoiler: show
I think all ten of these songs have a dramatic pause.
