One of the most entertaining and favorite scenes of mine.

"Master of Puppets" playing in Old School when they drive that van around the corner and kidnap the pledges. I have laughed many an ass off at that scene before.

Yes! It's been a LONG time since I've seen them live but they were great.

How is it that I haven't discovered this thread until now?

Yes! And I always feel a little stupid but it totally gives me chills too. I wish 50,000 people would roar for me just once.

I would add:

Twin Peaks Theme by Angelo Badalamenti from Fire Walk With Me.

Blame Canada from South Park: Bigger Louder and Uncut

for the kids (and me, I love it): Friend Like Me by Robin Williams from Aladdin

Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins- Top Gun (I know it's cheesy but YOU know you loved it at the time)

The Imperial March by John Williams- The Empire Strikes Back. Still gives me chills hearing the march for the first time in the trilogy with all of the Star Destroyers being eclipsed by the big SSD (man I'm a geek).

"Puttin' On The Ritz" in Young Frankenstein

Whatever that adaptation of "Bye Bye Love" is called at the end of All That Jazz. That movie hasn't aged real well, but damn if I don't still love it!
"Moving In Stereo" - The Cars in Fast Times At Ridgemont High. I can't hear that song without thinking of Phoebe...

The ship-to-bomb jump in Sunshine is one I experienced recently.

And the thunderstorm scene in Black Snake Moan (or hell, ALL of that fucking movie).

The Fifth Element, with the blue tentacley singing bitch intercut with the ginga fighting bitch.

The closing credits of V For Vendetta made me want to blow something up, in a good way.

The Asteroid Field sequence in Empire Strikes Back. Most exciting Williams music ever IMO.

always loved the more traditional use of Orbison's 'In Dreams' in Blue Velvet as well - Including Frank Booth quoting the lyrics... now I'm getting deja vu regard this thread.

I concur - I got amped up in the revenge-movie feel of that scene (plus I'm a huge Muse fan so I was wetting myself over the use of the music). Shame about the ending though.

Now that I know about the ending, I am not as bothered by it as I was when I left the theater. Someone gave me the DVD and I have to say this is hands down one of the best horror flicks around AND it introduced me to Muse.

The bit in Dazed In Confused when Wooderson, Pink and Mitch slo-mo walk in to the Emporium poolhall to the sound of The Hurricane by Bob Dylan, they look so damn cool and iconic, I swear that film alone is responsible for the 70's revival that the 90's suffered.

Why? Because I just can't get over the fucking perfect use of "In The Court Of The Crimson King" in Children Of Men. Just fucking awesome.


I'm suprised that hasn't been used in more films. What a fucking good song.

How about "Conquistador" by Procul Harem in Scorsese's segment in New York Stories? :D

I don't even know if this should count, seeing how it's a Joy Division song in a film about the lead singer of the band, but when Ian is going off to work, the long tracking shot as he leaves his place, wearing a leather, HATE embossed jacket, set to the opening riff of "No Love Lost"?

it's the epitome of simplicity, really, camera just tracks along, mostly behind Ian, but man, I could watch that on a loop forever.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

that was only one of the amazing moments in that film. fuck, i hate janis joplin, and even I adored her performance in that flick But for me, the best two performances in that flick were Ravi Shankar's 30 minute opus "Raga Bhimpalasi" to close the film (awe inspiring). and Otis Redding bringing the fuckin house down. really, it is a breathtaking account.
