Top 10 Songs Which Would've Been More Appropriate In a Clockwork Orange Than Singing In the Rain

MontyPython
Tip your hat to Britgirl for this idea guys.

We had a discussion about the "Singing In the Rain" scene from A Clockwork Orange. Being one of her favorite musicals, I asked her what she thought of the film and scene. She replied that she hated how such an innocent song was used for such a disgusting scene. And guess what?

I know it's my favorite movie and all, but I slightly agree.

It does example that this is nothing special and the Droogs do this any other average night, but couldn't Malcom McDowell use a more fitting tune? I know it was the first thing to pop in his head, but still.

Why Singing in the Rain?

The Top Ten

1 Symphony No. 5 - Beethoven

Bum bum bum bum. Yeah, Alex could've hummed this tune to show his love for Beethoven more maybe. - MontyPython

Well, obviously. Alex loves Beethoven. - jack2244

2 Ode to Joy: Symphony No. 9 - Beethoven

I think the innocence of "Singing in the Rain" was what made that scene truly horrifying.

Fun fact: Cary Grant also whistles Singing in the Rain in North by Northwest. - PetSounds

3 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Both rather dark. - MontyPython

4 A Quick One, While He's Away - The Who

Personally, this pops into my head all the time. It is a catchy and rather fun tune, so why wouldn't he use it? - MontyPython

5 The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin

Both rather perverted. - MontyPython

6 Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley
7 Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash
8 My Generation - The Who

Definitely more appropriate! Haha wow MontyPython, I was kidding! Bravo on your choice of songs! - Britgirl

9 Maxwell's Silver Hammer - The Beatles
10 Hound Dog - Elvis Presley

The Contenders

11 Animal I Have Become - Three Days Grace
12 Cherish - The Association
13 Rape Me - Nirvana

This song wasn't even out when A Clockwork Orange was released - jack2244

14 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

Isn't fitting for the list, wasn't out when the movie was released - jack2244
