    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    The 'Burbs - Corey Feldman on the front porch playing the song that was redone by Lenny Kravits (can't remember the name of it)

    Uncle Buck - walking out of the school after telling of Assistant Principal Horgarth. Again, can't remember the song title, but every time I hear both of these, I think of these classic movies.

    The theme song to Weeds will stick in your head and never come out.

    I was tied between this and Serge's "Life on Mars," but I think the music really just makes this scene.

    How about "Still" for the Geto Boys during the computer smashing scene in Office Space?

    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    The West Wing season finale where Dire Straits Brothers In Arms plays while President Bartlet makes his way to the press conference where he will announce whether or not he is running for re-election. It's got to be up there among the finest five minutes of scripted television ever.

    I've always loved the opening sequence in "The Hunt for Red October" with The "Hymn to Red October". That damn Ruski music gets me every time.

    Absolutely!

    I also think "Glory of Love" is the perfect ending credits for Part 2.

    For pure 80s coolness, gotta go with the dance scene from Rad

    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    Sadly, I have actually thought of this many times before and have a running list.

    'Falling Slowly' from the movie 'Once' in the music shop. I still watch that scene randomly online. Love it.

    'Wise Up' from 'Magnolia'. Many people hate that movie/scene but it's probably my top song/scene from almost any movie with all the actors singing. Awesome.

    Scott Pilgrim vs the World has some great song scenes.

    'Tiny Dancer' from Almost Famous for sure.

    'Day Oh' from Beetlejuice

    Office Space scene breaking the FAX machine

    'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' from Kill Bill vol 1 is way high on my list. It's the fight between Uma and Lucy Liu in the snow. Incredible.

    'Down in Mexico' from Tarantino's Death Proof.

    'Sister Christian' from Boogie Nights

    'Immigrant Love Song' from opening credits of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

    'Puttin on the Ritz' from Young Frankenstein

    'Stonehenge' from This Is Spinal Tap'

    'Stuck in the Middle with You' from Resevoir Dogs

    Yeah, that last pairing in BB was the perfect ending. As far as movies:

    1. "Every Sperm is Sacred" from Monty Python's "Meaning of Life."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8fheDIG_RA

    2. "Beethoven's 9th" in "A Clockwork Orange."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqpaxL2G2Zw

    3. "In Your Eyes" from "Say Anything."
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-j379JbL-xM


    "Of course the people don't want war ... the people can always be brought to do the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to greater danger."

    Minnie the Moocher in Blues Brothers, followed closely by the car chase, Soul Food Cafe, every other scene

    Gonna Fly Now from Rocky

    I'm Alright - end of Caddyshack

    Pretty much any movie that has a bagpipe version of Amazing Grace being played during a burial gets me

    This is a solid freaking list. I can't believe I didn't think of Magnolia or Spinal Tap in particular. And Scott Pilgrim is something I enjoyed a ton, I need to rewatch that.
