The music from Raging Bull [Intermezzo from Caveleria Rusticana] got me interested in opera.

Jumpin' Jack Flash was never one of my favourite stones songs till I saw Mean Streets, but it sounded brand new. All the music in Mean Streets is great, the Shoop Shoop Song never sounded so good 8)

Favorite movie soundtrack (aside from classic kids films, etc.) is probably this one:

As far as a song that's meaning/feeling changed for me because of hearing it out of its previous context (on TV/in film), it would have to be Johnny Mathis/"Wonderful Wonderful" as heard in the X-Files episode "Home" - one of the grossest X-Files shows ever.

A baby is found buried alive in shallow ground and appears to have birth defects resulting from generations of inbreeding, leading Mulder and Scully to a reclusive family who have a history of inbred children.

That's a beautiful song, the only time I've ever heard it was watching that show, that was gross! They had a cool big car too though, those freaks.

'bad moon rising' is now automatically linked in my head to
'an american werewolf in london'
amelie has a lovely soundtrack and i agree with the choice of songs on
'almost famous' being cool 8)

what about the obvious Reservoir dogs-- stuck in the middle very evocative since the film, no longer a crappy bland 70s song in this context

t.b. sheets from Bringing out the dead.

Suzanne -- Leonard Cohen from "Breaking The Waves" perfectly captures the dark, oceanside mood.

Ooh La La -- Faces from "Rushmore".

nice one :wink: hope you like Happy End too.

another Gainsbourg song, Je t'aime, Moi non plus with Jane Birkin always reminds me same title movie(not so good for my eyes) and kinda erotic moods..... :oops:

again lust for life reminds me trainspotting opening.

Great soundtrack. Lou Barlow kickin' it Folk Implosion style. Spoiled is such a sad song despite it's big thrashy feedbacky thing.

Pity about all the fiddlin'. Cant listen to it without seeing things I really shouldn't be seeing. :oops: [/img]

Did you know, that the music in Curb Your Enthusiasm was inspired by Rota's excellent music that he did for Fellini? LD thought some Fellini-esque music would be great for the bizarre scrapes he gets into on the show.

Donna Summer's Hot Stuff is playing on the radio... imediatly brings some ugly middle-aged stripping guys to mind (The Full Monty). :shock:

Not a movie, but there was an episode of Beverly Hills 90210 in which Steve Sanders' girlfriend (whose name escapes me at the moment.....she fancied Brandon for ages.....the Principal's daughter...y'know...Clare!! That's her) sings a Linda Ronstadt song (which I also fail to remember) that her mum used to sing to her as a nipper. She can't make the first verse in key and everybody hates it, but then - as is often the way in these things - gets it right and sounds wonderful. It truly is a great TV moment.
