Anything not named Shallow👏

E said...

In honor of the 50th anniversary of "Midnight Cowboy", I'll say "Everybody's Talkin'" by Nilsson

Or "Into the Fire" from "Goodfellas", again Nilsson

BlissBoo said...

The soundtrack to Sense & Sensibility and Rainbow Connection, The Muppets. I'm totally serious!

Tricia13 said...

Use of a song or original....use-Tiny Dancer/Almost Famous maybe.
Original... hmmm Stay was great from Reality Bites by Entys friend Lisa Loeb.So was Dont Wanna Fall In Love/Pump Up the Volume-Aaron Neville. Tough question

STORM! said...

You're so cool from True Romance.

Honey Bunny said...

I will always love you and the whole Bodyguard soundtrack.

Zebra Seasoning said...

The Roxanne mashup from Moulin Rouge
Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Diamonds are Forever
The Pink Panther theme
The Star Wars theme

I could go on.

As far as soundtracks go, the 1998 Avengers movie with Ralph Fiennes, Uma Thurman, and Sean Connery is outstanding. The movie- not so much.

BlissBoo said...

All great suggestions. I LOVED True Romance! Remember Brad all buzzed out on the sofa? LOL

TommyWantsHisMommy said...

Donnie Darko...tears for fears...head over heels...

Rachel said...

Probably Bitter Sweet Symphony from Cruel Intentions. Idk if its my favorite, or just the most memorable tome. Happened to have an interesting backstory I never knew about write up yesterday

So many-Love my Way -Valley Girl
Somebody’s baby-Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Everything from Pulp Fiction lol

cheesegrater15 said...

I love El Tango de Roxanne!

Moose said...

Moon River, from Breakfast At Tiffany, which is also among my favorite movies. Audrey playing the guitar and singing it is particularly and uniquely lovely.

cheesegrater15 said...

Probably "Uninvited" by Alanis Morrissette. But ask me in an hour and it'd probably be something else.

firestarter said...

Holiday Road by Lindsey Buckingham, Live and Let Die, Don't you forget about me. Blow and Gross Point Blank soundtracks.

Moose said...

Runnerup for me is Urge Overkill's take on Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon", which just makes that brilliant Uma Thurman scene in "Pulp Fiction" that much better.

E said...

Every time I hear "I Melt With You" I think of that movie, which I love!

Troy Dyer said...

I’m also partial to the reality bites soundtrack 😉

MJ said...

Too many

but if i i have to chose just one, Father and Son, from Rock Boat( and ANATHEMA To anyone that says From Guardians of the GAlaxy )

That song just makes me" feel", and when i saw that my son loved it, from that movie, made me feel even more :)

Sd Auntie said...

Singles soundtrack brings back memories!

shakey said...

Tons. But I'll say 2: Old Soulsfrom Phantom of the Paradise, and Look Up To The Sky by the Indians played during the closing credits of Kalifornia.

kelli grrrl said...

The Batman Forever (Jim Carrey was The Riddler) soundtrack is soooo goood!!!! Tied with the Singles soundtrack. The 90s had some amazing music.

Tricia13 said...

Honorable mention:This Woman’s Work/She’s Having A Baby-Kate Bush. That scene was —poignant. Perfect song

Aquagirl said...

Audrey Hepburn playing the ukulele and singing Moon River in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Spitbite said...

Best of All Time: 'The Trio' from the Good, The Bad and the Ugly soundtrack, even better than Ecstasy of Gold or opening credits, you can really feel the tension of the scene...

Then:
'Respect The Wind' by Van Halen from the end of Twister and
'Gentle on my Mind' by Lucinda Williams from the end of Talladega Nights - can't buy as a standalone track on iTunes, would love to.
'Can't help falling in love with you' from the Snapper

I know I'll remember more as soon as I post but that's enough for now...

Spitbite said...

Aaaargh! Caddyshack!

Spitbite said...

Bee Gees! Saturday Night Fever! - bought the dvd just for the opening song with the close up of Tony's feet walking.

Spitbite said...

Yes! Constant Sorrow from O' Brother! I think is the only other soundtrack after Pulp Fiction I ever bought all of and listened to/loved all of.

Spitbite said...

Barber's Adagio from Platoon ( or maaaaybe it's Mahler's 5th...?)

Tricia13 said...

The best ones

Spitbite said...

Ooo! Oooo! One more! One more!

'Burning Bridges' by the Mike Curb Congregation from Kelly's Heroes!

Vita said...

I think it's clear that our imaginary get together would have stellar tunes!🎵🎶

OKay said...

Rocky Horror Picture Show. Saturday Night Fever. Grease. Pick any song from any one of those. Hey, Caddyshack! Yeah, that too. That gopher was pure gold.

james2051 said...

Unmade - Suspiria

Do Tell said...

So, so many to mention. I should give a special shoutout, though, to the faux-80's pop song that was written specifically for "Music & Lyrics", "Pop Goes My Heart". It was SO perfectly done and produced that it really could have been a huge hit in 1985. And Hugh Grant was perfect in the music video for it and in the movie as the washed up pop star. The video is well worth checking out on YouTube because they got everything *so* dead on.

arbfuldodger said...

When Doves Cry (but basically the whole Purple Rain ST)
Layla - Goodfellas
Tiny Dancer - Almost Famous
