Best songs in movies.

I am trying to get the Times Square 360 view to work on here. But I suck and I don’t know what I’m doing. So I might just put that crap up tomorrow. Or maybe I will play more when I’m not busy. In the meantime….
Best use of a song in a movie. GO!!!

  7. Every song in Rushmore – most perfectly scored movie I’ve ever seen.

    Office Space – “Down for Whatever” – Ice Cube; “Damn it Feels Good to Be a Gangster” & “Still” – Geto Boys; Back up in your ass with the resurrection. Indeed.

  8. YES! Office Space. You are so right.

  9. The Massive Attack song in “Snatch” when Brad Pitt’s trailor is being burned down.

    Can’t remember the name of the song, and since I’ve been awake since 2:00 am to watch the US world cup match, I can’t make the effort to look the song up.

  10. OH!

    You made me think of one. There is scene from “Go” when that cute little drug dealer guy is trying to seduce the cute little drug-buying girl in the apartment. It’s set to Massive Attack. Yes. That scene is wonderful. Yum.

  11. Dazed and Confused – “Tuesday’s Gone” – Lynard Skynyrd. In the party wrap-up scene, I thought this was perfect

  12. Of course, I have 2 teeth (in reference to the song above).

  13. Either ‘Hey Jude’ in the Royal Tenebaums or the ‘You are Forgiven’ song in Rushmore – those I saw recently.

    Or the whole score to “Goodfellas”

  14. That version of “Hotel California” in The Big Lebowski: the slo-mo shot of Jesus bowling.

  15. Actually, any song used in The Big Lebowski for that matter.

  16. Speaking of massive attack.. I think… The scene at the end of snatch where they realize that mickey had a plan all along, and they’re watching the plan unfold in slow motion.

    I think that was massive attack.
    I think that was the scene.
    I think I should go nap.
