Best Use of a Song in a MovieRefers to the use of an existing song as a plot device. This means that the characters in the movie interact with the song in some way such as listening to it or singing it.

Also, songs in musicals or other songs written specifically for the movie are not included.
The Top Ten
Iconic scene from the film.
The movie scene that introduced Bohemian Rhapsody to a whole new generation of listeners. Everyone's parents seemed a little bit cooler after we found out they already had this song on vinyl.
just a great car scene with a legendary song that rocks :) my friends and I do this scene while we're in the car every time we hear it. - hawkcatcher04
Definately! Funniest part in the movie too. It helps that I know the lyrics. - fireinside9613 Comments
This is a Great Song used to perfection in the Film and Michael J FOX absolutely nailed it. And high up on -My Top 10- Actors who performed in a movie with Buddy Holly- Ray Charles & the Blues Brothers. GB - GrantzPlace
Chuck. Chuck. It's Marvin - your cousin, Marvin BERRY. You know that new sound you're looking for? Well, listen to this. - Ozilation
MJ Fox Sang the Song Himself. Of Course the Guitaring was not by him.
Note-for-note, Fox synched that guitar solo like he made the song himself. - Zahveed1 Comment
This song gives the movies energy! I always get so pumped every time I hear this song because it reminds me of these motivating training scenes!
That scene of this film is iconic! During a school football game, my friend and I couldn't think of a good cheer, so we just sang this song even though we had no idea what the words were! We called it "The Bettlejuice" song. Ha ha! - tcatron565

You cannot beat this film. With leaving on a jet plane and miss you aerosmith. Cannot be beaten. Second song not listed. Should be would be close contender.
Mandy Moore singing her own song in her movie is awesome! The movie itself was very inspiring, and together with the song are enough to make me teary-eyed. - kurtcardona

All the friends are hangin out, getting drunk and playing pool while singing "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" by Frankie Valli before they go off to Vietnam. An unbelievably well shot and acted scene and, in my opinion, the best musical scene ever to be in a movie.
Every time I hear this song it reminds me the movie and it makes me feel happy
