Best Use of a Song in a Movie Soundtrack

Unlike the other list of "Best Use of a Song in a Movie", this list includes songs that were not a part of the plot. This means that the characters in the movie did not interact with the song in any way.

21 The Rain, The Park and Other Things - Dumb and Dumber
