48 Mama Told Me Not to Come - Boogie Nights
49 Can't Take My Eyes Off You - The Deer Hunter

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.

50 Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Stepmom
51 You Make My Dreams - 500 Days of Summer

Every time I hear this song it reminds me the movie and it makes me feel happy

52 Only You - So, I Married an Axe Murderer
53 Jump in the Line - Beetlejuice

Shake, Shake, Shake Senora!

54 Hushabye Mountain - War of the Worlds

Dakota Fanning is blindfolded while she sings a lullabye all the while her father kills a madman.

55 Killing Me Softly - About a Boy
56 White Rabbit - Platoon

They're all smoking dope in the hooch while listening to Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbitt". The song peak's as Charlie Sheen takes a hit off of Willam Dafoe's gun barrell. Pretty damn cool.

57 You Could Be Mine - Terminator 2
58 Oh What a Night - 3000 Miles to Graceland
59 Ave Maria - Fantasia
60 Show Me The Money - Step Up
