What songs, (Not written for the movie) when you hear them, bring you back to a specific movie.

I will start with.

Stuck in the middle: Reservoir Dogs

Rolling with the changes: Cabin in the woods

Tiny Dancer: Almost Famous

And, you know, that song from Kill Bill, the one where they are walking in slow motion... Yeah, that one as well.

I can no longer see a short man spraying disinfectant in bowling shoes now, or a man riding a magic carpet above Los Angeles, without hearing Bob croon "The Man In Me"... but ooohh, what a wonderful feeling.

Creepy 'Lebowski' mention #1 for this thread. Thought I'd get it rolling from the start.

I recently rewatched the 2004 Dawn of the Dead movie and that whole soundtrack is pretty awesome. But the ones that really stay with you are When the Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash, and Down With the Sickness by Disturbed. Especially everytime that I hear the Johnny Cash song does it take me back to this movie. You also gotta love the version of Down With the Sickness that Richard Cheese did.

The Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash

Dawn of the Dead - (Down with the Sickness)

Richard Cheese - Down With the Sickness (Dawn of the Dead version)

Needle In The Hay by Elliot Smith and The Royal Tenenbaums (The Criterion Collection). Such a fantastic scene.

The sound track from "Buffy, The Vampire Slayer" is all good stuff--well almost all. My sieve for a memory won't let me recall the titles, but there were two songs by Toad the Wet Sprocket that were good and a bouncy, somewhat racy one, "I touch myself" I think was the title. The sound track from O Lucky Man, that includes 2 or 3 versions of the title song, plus "Everybody Goes through Changes" and, at the time it came out I was in sales (groan) "Sell, Sell, Sell," really hit the spot. These songs are seldom played anywhere, except by me, and they always bring back the movies they were in, both of which I enjoyed.

When I hear "Shout" I always think of the Toga Party in Animal House.

'Last Resort' in 'The One' That song fit the ending scene perfectly.

You forgot "Let's Go Fly a Kite"'s most memorable because the movie is finally over!

Ohh! look out for this guy hahaha...that's a childhood favorite of - those songs never get old. The sight of a freshly mended kite still gets me all excited and giddy...

"Every Sperm Is Sacred" Monty Python and the Meaning of Life
"The Inquisition" Mel Brooks' History of the World Part I

I watched both of these movies as a child and the faint echoes of these songs never do QUITE disappear. If you never saw them...consider this fair warning.

P.S. This thread is actually a legitimate and non-creepy mention for Lebowski, as the song and dance number seems to be the part that everyone enjoys.

Ha! I never saw that one as a kid, haha until only recently my mom has been watching it. I can't help but picture the male lead as he was in The Last Starfighter....still a good flick though!!

Someone already mentioned some of the music from "A Clockwork Orange."

Maybe I should add Rossini's Thieving Magpie to that

A song that came from a movie? How about "Footloose?" LOL

Quincy Jones recorded "Soul Bossa Nova" in the mid-1960s - of course now it's known as the 'Austin Powers' theme.
Listen to "Tequila" by The Champs, and try not to do the Big Shoes Dance. Can't be done.

The song that "Elle" whistles while she dons that nurses outfit with the eye patch and heads down the hallway to Beatrix's room with sinister intentions....

Kill Bill Volume 1

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 25, 2012, 11:23:52 PM PDT
Great choice, Joe Blough.

'The Warriors' recently won first place in our Favorite Cult Film game. The use of "Nowhere to Run" was also very effective.

I can't listen to the Banana split's song without thinking of Kick-Ass anymore.
