Great uses of music in movies

(1) The Big Chill - the moment near the start of the movie when the funeral procession moves off and the Rolling Stones 'You Can't Always Get What You Want' starts up.

(2) Goodfellas - good use of contemporary music throughout

(3) Scarface - Atmospheric score throughout

(4) Withnail and I - the moment when the Jaguar sets off on the deserted motorway and Jimi Hendrix's guitar starts up

(5) Lost Highway - David Bowie over the closing credits



Any others?

Ditto regarding Lost Highway. A wonderful soundtrack.

Garden State and Cruel Intentions comes to mind as well.

Chariots of Fire The music makes the movie.
The Graduate Simon and Garfunkel
Easy Rider Born to be Wild
But the all-time greatest,
Isaac Hayes and the Theme from Shaft. Today's rappers and rock n roll posers can only wish they were this cool.

I'll go for a 'dumb' one...

Crash Test Dummies' Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm during the scene in Dumb & Dumber when Harry is pissed off at Lloyd and decides to just walk home from Lincoln, Nevada.

Perfect!

Agreed, I forgot about those two.

Tears For Fears' Mad World (slow ver) in Donnie Darko. I haven't really seen that movie though... just that scene and I love that version of the song.

How about...
...the Ride of the Valkyries in Apocalypse Now
...the music from Brian's Song. Most American guys over 35 will freely admit to crying during that movie.
...I Melt with You by Modern English at the end of Valley Girl.

Good one, also the use a Echo and the Bunnymen's song, whose name I forget, is very effective in that movie.

"The Killing Moon." However in the director's cut on the DVD, they cut out that song in the beginning and replaced it with INXS' "Never Tear Us Apart"! It's still a good song, but it totally threw me off .

The start of "In The Name Of The Father" with Voodoo Child by Hendrix playing, as a riot breaks out in Belfast.
