Top music moments in film history

Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

Postby MasterWhedon on Tue Oct 10, 2006 12:24 pm

One of the first times I remember being genuinely moved by source music in a movie was--I shit you not--when Charlie Sheen's Ricky Vaughn walks out of the bullpen at the end of Major League and they blare "Wild Thing" over the loudspeakers. The crowd roars, everyone sings along... Chills. Just, chills.

And as overused as it was in the promos for the film, the "Tiny Dancer" segment in Almost Famous is pitch perfect. What better to heal a fractured band than music?

Henry Winkler made a film called Heroes, and at the end of the film, with Winkler on his knees in some field, the song Carry on My Wayward Son by Kansas cranked up.
It was perfect.
For the video release, the song was removed, and replaced with generic laxative music.
WTF?

Always loved Keith Emerson's use of I'm a Man in the film Nighthawks...the scene in the disco where Stallone is trying to pick out Wolfgar ( Rutger Hauer) in the dancing throng.

Again, in the video release, the song was changed.
WTF? part 2.

Seconded. A classic. Endings don't come much better (or terrifying) than that.

I'll be amazed if anyone remembers this...
Town Without Pity by Gene Pitney, from the film by the same name.

Pimpin' Wes Anderson again, but...

...first thing that comes to mind is "Fly" by Nick Drake in The Royal Tenenbaums, when Richie escaped from the hospital to visit Margot. I thought it was really romantic and captured the nostalgic tone of their romance poifectly. Probably has more to do with me liking the song than me liking the moment though.

There's probably other stuff, but I'm drawing blanks right now.

Two more to consider -

The End, by the Doors from Apocolypse Now

And Crazy Rhythm , the duet by the Hines Brothers in Cotton Club.

The Hines Brothers reunion in that film, as they're dancing & singing Crazy Rhythm, was the emotional heart & soul of Cotton Club. When Gregory & Maurice falter during the middle of the number, looking into each others faces, and all the estrangment & distance melts away as they embrace...I cried like a little girl. It was real, beautiful & perfect.
Best damn thing in Cotton Club.

I still say the best thing about that film is Philip Seymour doing a spot on Lester Bangs, and while the hipster snob in me wants to thumb my nose at that, I just can't.

what kills me about that is that Goodfellas only had one track.

shit, EVERY song used in that should make the list.

pitch perfect period pieces throughout the film.

the two best soundtrack movies of the '00s, imo, are hedwig & the angry inch and donnie darko, hence:

"the origin of love", hedwig & the angry inch (technically it was written for the play, not the movie)
also...
"tear me down", hedwig & the angry inch
"wig in a box", hedwig & the angry inch
"wicked little town", both hedwig and tommy gnosis versions

"mad world", gary jules (covering tears for fears), from donnie darko
also...
"the killing moon", echo & the bunnymen, from donnie darko (original, and correct, beginning of the film)
"notorious", aka the sparkle motion song, duran duran, from donnie darko
"under the milky way", the church, from the correct version of donnie darko
"head over heels", tears for fears, from donnie darko


other ones...

"raindrops keep falling on my head", spiderman 2

the irish jig version of "can't help falling in love", lick the tins, from some kind of wonderful

"somebody's baby", jackson browne, fast times at ridgemont high

"killing me softly with his song," hugh grant and that british kid, from about a boy
also...
"shake ya ass", mystikal, from about a boy

"relax", frankie goes to hollywood, from body double

Brand New Key with Rollergirl.

"Would" by Alice in Chains for the movie "Singles"

Actually the entire soundtrack is very good as well.

- The Lovemongers (Anne and Nancy Wilson of Heart fame)
- Pearl Jam
- Jimi Hendrix
- Chris Cornell

Very solid.

Another good one is "The Big Empty" by STP in the movie "The Crow"

Its now my kids' new favourite song. We sing it round the house all the time, much to the chagrin of their mommy.

It is just the ticket price putting me off really. It's about $40.

In keeping on topic, the ending of "Happy Together" kicks mucho ass EDIT: scratch that, it's sublime cinematic heaven.

"The Sound Of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel.


Isn't that song also in the Graduate? Or are those other S&F songs?

Vera Lynn's 'We'll meet again' - seconded (thirded?) with vehemence.

and:


Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) by Kenny Rogers And The First Edition in the Big Lebowski
Beethoven's Ninth in Clockwork Orange
Underworld's 'Born Slippy' in Trainspotting
and - an old classic: the Colonel Bogey March (that whistled tune) from the Bridge on the River Kwai

I know those last three are instrumental - so no poignant lyrics.. but I think they're still among the greatest music moments in film anyway.

While you're at it with Bueller, La Dracul- Yello's 'Oh Yeah' with the principal on the bus deserves mention. Something todo with the incongruence between the funky 80's Kraftwerk vibe of this Swedish duo's electronica and watching Jeffrey Jones as Ed Rooney drag his sorry arse onto that bus makes me laugh every time.

The frantic ska music over Bueller's last desperate dash home (stopping only to chat with some choice babes sunbathing) should also come up here - I think it's 'The March of the Swivelheads' by The Beat.


John Hughes has a few really great ones (I was just waiting for someone else to bring him up).
