one of my favorites sequences in movies ever

-- "Bang Bang" cover in Kill Bill

-- "All Along The Watchtower" in American Beauty, it's the perfect song for that moment

I can't believe I forgot about A Clockwork Orange. "Singing in the Rain" during the rape for one thing, but especially the William Tell Overture during the threesome in fast motion.

Just about anything in Tarantino's movies, really.

one of my favourites is in 'kill bill' when the crazy 88 are entering the house of blue leaves restaurant and 'battle without honour or humanity' starts playing.

Fun Fact: The director originally wanted to use U2's MLK for the scene, but had trouble getting the rights to it.

Exit Music (For A Film) at the end of Romeo and Juliet...

Cameron Crowe movies have great soundtracks

Almost Famous is my favorite...great use of music throughout and great original music by Nancy Wilson. The part that gets me is when they are on the bus singing "Tiny Dancer"

Love "In Your Eyes" from Say Anything

and "Secret Garden" in Jerry Maguire

These have already been mentioned, but...
Almost Famous
Kill Bill
Donnie Darko

and the music in American Psycho is freakin hilarious. It's all about having threesomes to the sounds of Sussudio and killing your co-worker with Hip To Be Square playing in the background.
