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