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. Songs that are merely in the soundtrack are not suited for this list, but they can be added to the Best Use of a Song in a Movie Soundtrack top ten list. Also, songs in musicals or other songs written specifically for the movie are not included.
The Top Ten
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.
I love that movie and that's one of the most memorable parts in the movie
Introduced me to Bohemian Rhapsody and more importantly Queen.
the scene where they used Bohemian Rhapsody was the best!
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
Chuck. Chuck. It's Marvin - your cousin, Marvin BERRY. You know that new sound you're looking for? Well, listen to this.
Note-for-note, Fox synched that guitar solo like he made the song himself.
MJ Fox Sang the Song Himself. Of Course the Guitaring was not by him.
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!
Ridiculously funny, my favorite scene!
funny song and they dance too.
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!
Hell yes Ferris Buller!
She had your attention when she was singing that song in the movie.
Lol this song was in my head for months when I watched this film
Bette Midler dig her thing!
Okay lol I loved this one and low rider was great for that one, the beetlejuice one, but I LOVE this movie so I said it lol
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.
This is a great movie and I think its great that mandy moore is singing her own song in the movie she is in..
this movie and song made me cry and I love them both
what's weird is that the book made me cry only at the end but when watching the movie I only cried when she ws singing this song
Think of the song and a boombox.
And only Kenny Loggins rocked this song, not Blake Shelton
Ok Kenny Loggins rocked this song!
Who doesn't bob their head sideways when hearing this song because of Doug and Steve Butabi?
was really funny and heath ledger made it so spectacular, so lavish... couldn't have make use of better than this... wish I could do that... the movie was equally great...
I mean how many other movies and T.V. shows have copied or parodied this classic scene?
This song played an iconic role in Risky Business
I'm not voting for Queen- sue me. I've been on a bus full of people all singing to Tiny Dancer, and it's one of the best experiences I've ever had.
If you haven't already sold your soul to rock n roll, this movie is sure to seal the deal.
Who didn't want to be on that bus singing that song with Stillwater!? I know I did!
He's awesome and cute and funny
that part in the movie was the best!! really good movie, really good song.
Great use of the song for this movie. It was great. Only movie I saw as well out of all of these ones listed.
was great went exactly with the film
War is a great band. Long standing sound
I liked low rider for years
good movie and great song all there is to say
Somebody once told me the world was gonna roll me...
Yes... it came
Created a meme sensation.
Olive is hilarious couldn't have chosen a better song, shame the movie was crap!
WHAT? They use one of the best Queen songs in yet another movie? Awesome! See, people are starting to understand!
Shut the Queen off
No, it sounds perfect with the scene you're in hah aha
"Who the hell put this on? "
"It's on random! "
Shaun: David! Kill the Queen!
Shaun: THE JUKEBOX!
