And the scene where Sinead O'Connor sings "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart" as all of the prisoners drop flaming paper in honor of the dad (I forget his name)... absolutely heartbreaking

I just realized that no one has mentioned "Old Time Rock n'Roll" from Risky Business!

And put "The Killing Moon" in the place of another song by a band that some people get pissed off when I mention their name, but everyone knows who it is anyway, so But yeah, those changes totally throw off the movie.

I loved the music in Blade Runner. That was Vangelis, wasn't it? (I'm too lazy to check.)

"Girl, You're Going to be A Woman Soon" as covered by Urge Overkill in Pulp Fiction while Uma Thurman dances around and eventually snorts the heroin that nearly kills her. Chilling and weirdly erotic.

"Stuck in the Middle With You" in Reservoir Dogs while Michael Madsen de-ears the cop.

Just about anything in Tarantino's movies, really.

Last of the Mohicans was mentioned, just about any Michael Mann movie.

Heat-pretty much throughout but at the end when Pacino grabs Deniro's hand as he is dying and Moby's God Moving Over the Face of the Water. that ia a great moment.

Also the first real gratuitous Lsa Gerrard pieces before Gladiator and other movies hijacked the idea.

An excellent soundtrack. Michael Brook has a cool song on it.

The music in "The Thing" and "Escape From New York" was cool.
Very 80's synthish, but dark, moody and cool. John Carpenter composed it. Not for everybody. :wink"

Also the score to the Crow was excellent as well as the soundtrack (I am talking about the first movie).

Also liked the score to In America and Blade Runner as well.

Another more recent one is the score for the movie Solaris, which I thought was awesome.

Everything In Its Right Place when Tom Cruise drives around an empty Times Square in Vanilla Sky

That Brian Eno song when Ewan McGregor swims around in the toilet in Trainspotting.

The Propellerheads song Spybreak in the Matrix when Trinity and Neo invade the lobby of that office building with their "lots of guns". That was pretty awesome.

As for Trainspotting, it is pretty cool when Born Slippy plays while he steals the money.

elliott smith's "needle in the hay" in the royal tennenbaums.

goodfellas was already mentioned, but the music works well in most scorsese films. so yeah, i'm guilty of thinking that the hands that built america was perfect at the end of gangs of ny. but hey, that's one of my favorite movies ever, and i generally like everything scorsese does (even if i'm spelling his name wrong. i never said i could spell).

there was also that scene with the guy walking around singing "new york girls" was cool. there always seems to be one scene in scorsese's films (the only one i can think of off the top of my head was in mean streets where harvey keitel's character is walking through the bar, but i know there are others. there was at least one other, the camera follows dicaprio once or twice) where the camera follows someone walking around, and in gangs of ny, it's following this dude who's singing as an actual part in the movie, but he's singing as the movie is happening, as a soundtrack.

anyway, i thought that was cool.
