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.

Both spontaneous and perfectly synchronized, it is used to tell us all what the true meaning of "love" really is. - theforce427
Perfect song for the movie.
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
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.
the song strikes some strong emotion... used well in the movie - bufallowings42
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.
