    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 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!

    Non-diegetic, but the characters bring it into their world. Since this film isn't a musical I think fits Harvey's criteria. Perfect song for the scene made better by the characters.

    This brought me to tears when I first saw it.

    I saw that movie in the theater when I was kid. Still think that Cop is a simp. The OST is great.
