    Well, they're both somewhat redundant. It would be better to phrase it as, "The theme song in the movie is "blah blah blah" by "blah blah". So while B is more correct, both are repetitive.

    B: This song is used as the theme song in the movie.

    This is because a means that there is more that one song, the means it's the only one.

    This song was used as the theme song in the movie

    This is the theme song in the movie.

    - avoiding the repetition of the word 'song'. 'is' conveys exactly the same meaning as 'is used as', so, simplify where possible.

    both are "grammatically correct".... B is just better-- it's more specific in indicating there is only one theme song in "the movie"

    I think it would be B. But if you replaced 'This song' with the title of the song, it might sound better. :] Or use...

    "[Song title] was used as the theme song of [Movie title]."

    Whatever floats yer boat. :o

    B--"THE theme song" suggests only one main theme song.

    The other one means there could be more than one.
