Best Use of a Song in a Movie

The Contenders: Page 4

61 More than a Feeling - Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Ok, I might be obsessed with song a little too much, but they do play it in the movie. Watch the movie and listen carefully. When they shoot electricity going out or something, you see a car door open and you hear about 2-3 seconds of it.

Haha, yeah. Great song though. - Baltimore1993

62 My Stoney Baby - Harold and Kumar: Escape From of Guantanamo Bay
63 Hail Holy Queen - Sister Act
64 It Will Be Me - Brother Bear 2
65 Flight of the Valkyries - Apocalypse Now

The helicopter assault in Apocalypse now while Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries blared is the best use. When I first saw this scene I was simultaneously struck by feelings of awe and disgust. Which I think was Coppola's intention for his disturbingly brilliant masterpiece.

66 All I Could Do Was Cry - Cadillac Records
67 Right Kind of Wrong - Coyote Ugly
68 America - Almost Famous

the song strikes some strong emotion... used well in the movie - bufallowings42

69 Finale - Ring 00 Birthday
70 Exhale - Waiting To Exhale
71 Hero - (500) Days of Summer
72 Love is Strange - Badlands
73 Can You Feel The Love Tonight - The Lion King
74 Black Suits Coming - Men in Black II
75 Secrets - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

This is an awesome song by OneRepublic that it's not only played as part of the movie, it's part of the story. It's played when Dave starts to listen to Becky's radio and when he shows her his Tesla Coil, doing some chords of the song. Also I think this song reflects Dave's situation in the movie about telling all his 'secrets' (about his training) to Becky.

76 Sussudio - American Psycho
77 Hooked On a Feeling - Guardians of the Galaxy
78 Bank Robber - Rock n Rolla V 1 Comment
79 Memo From Turner - Performance
80 Makin' Whoopee - Fabulous Baker Boys
