Best use of a song in a movie.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
To be clear, this is for a non-diegetic song used in a movie, not written for that movie. So for example, "Little Green Bag" in Reservoir Dogs would count, but "Stuck in the Middle with You" would not. Please try to post the clip featuring the song in the movie if you can find it, even if it's just partial.


Don't mean to win this Fred on post 1 but I doubt you guys can top this.

And, not a movie, but the closing music choice of most episodes of Silicon Valley. Always comes in hitting hard and juxtaposed against the characters and situations of the episode. Whether it is ZZ-Top, Run the Jewels or Big Mall, it is so ill-fitting that it becomes perfectly fitting.

I would settle for the haunting piano theme in 7 pounds. By Ennio
Morricone.

I was going to mention the Layla scene from Goodfelas - the music almost makes the bodies being discovered appear to be in slow motion - very powerful!

Think By Kaleida in John Wick-the club scene where Keanu Reeves goes bersek.
