My memory of CCR's "midnight special" is forever changed because of Twilight Zone the move.

others?

AFter seeing "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" I can't listen to Mott the Hoople without thinking of Martin Scorsese -- not a bad thing really.

Their is so much good movie music, but Willows Song from the Wicker Man will stay with me forever. Haunting & Beautiful.

Second to that.. East Hastings by Godspeed You Black Emperor from
28 Days Later will always make me think of an erie empty London.

i can't listen to loveless anymore without thinking of lost in translation because "sometimes" was in the movie. same thing with jesus&mary chain's "just like honey". but it's a good thing, lost in translation is one of my favorite movies, maybe even THE favorite one.

when i was reading haruki murakami's "norwegian wood" i received a japanese music sampler from bithead and listened to it while reading. now everytime i hear flipper's guitar's dolphin song i start thinking of naoko in kyoto hills. the whole cd brings back to mind the atmosphere of the book. which is a good thing too. the book was FANTASTIC.

Whenever I hear Peter Gabriel, in my mind I see John Cusak holding a boom box over his head. Probably less because Say Anything made some kind of impression on me and more because of excessive advertising and repetition from would-be 80s nostalgia makers.

My number one is:

and talking of Gainsbourg (see Gainsbourg thread) here is a wonderful collection of his movie music:

It includes a beautiful Gainsbourg song sung by Nico (pre-velvets 1962) called STRIPTEASE.

For SONGS

Natural Born Killers

for its disapate styles that sound like they were made to go together

For SCORES

So many i can't think of an obvious one at the moment.

For SONGS WRITTEN ESPECIALLY FOR

LASt GREAT WILDERNESS springs to mind beacuse its recent and pretty good to boot.

Score: Drowning By Numbers (Michael Nyman)

An individual movie song that gets me is Cavatina from the Deer Hunter. For years I thought it was the tune for Tony Hart's Gallery, and was quite surprised to hear it the first time I saw the film!

Ditto.. made me see Tony Hart in a completely new light! :lol:

Still think Mr Bennett (the landlord/caretaker) was a bit dodgy though.. :lol:
