    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    I immediately think of Reservoir Dogs and "Stuck in the Middle With You"

    Also the "Hotel California" cover in Big Lebowski where we meet "De Jesus"

    '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
    Good call, I should have thought of that one...

    Golden Brown - Snatch

    I'm Shipping Up to Boston - The Departed


    Hoiberg: I have a unique situation here. I grew up here. I went to college here. My family is close and my wife's family is close. I know everyone in the community and my family is very comfortable here. My daughter has dreamed about one thing and that's going to Iowa State. The NBA is great and I love the NBA, but I love Iowa State and the opportunity I have here. We've really built something special and I think we've got real momentum to keep it going even more.

    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    Tarantino is the master at putting great music to a scene/movie. Every one of his movies has at least one great music scene if not several.

    Reservoir Dogs - Stuck in the Middle with You
    Pulp Fiction - Girl You'll Be a Woman Soon; You Never Can Tell (dance in the diner)
    Jackie Brown - Across 110th Street; Midnight Confessions
    Kill Bill Vol. 1 - Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood; Bang Bang; Battle without honor or humanity;
    Death Proof - Down in Mexico; Hold Tight (god I love that song and the scene in that movie. So good)

    Paul Thomas Anderson is also a master at this in both Boogie Nights and Magnolia

    Excellent call on Golden Brown. Guy Ritchie makes really good use of music in his films. The "I wanna be your dog" scene from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels comes to mind.

    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    I thought of "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" even before I saw the Python one above.

    Holiday Road from Vacation is pretty much perfect.

    And the opening of my favorite movie American Graffiti. You hear the sound of a radio being tuned before the opening scene starts and then boom, Rock Around the Clock starts. I know, it's cliche' now, but it was the one that was first, before it was a cliche'


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Elizabethtown - My Morning Jacket makes a cameo as cousin Jesse's band and they tear it up with a cover of Freebird.

    Re: Friday OT: Favorite movie/song scene

    This probably doesn't belong in here because as an adult you see how bad of a "movie" this is. The song is just some stock symphony song so the song itself isn't even all that good and the scene itself is short. It's more nostalgic for me than it is a great scene. You have to go to about 9:40 of the video for the part i'm talking about.

    I had this VHS as a kid and I think my mom had to buy it twice because I wore out the tape. But when it got to this part I would watch it over and over. It's the wrong color of machinery and their in wheat but there is something about the excitement of new machinery being delivered especially as a kid, and this was the only movie that had that moment in it. Hell, I'm 35 and I still get pumped watching this and when we get a new combine or tractor delivered.

    Like I said it shouldn't be anywhere near the conversation for best but it is still one of my favorites.

    The great electric guitar innovator Vinnie Bell with the theme from the 1970 disaster flick "Airport". It's big and gaudy, with strings, horns, and vocal background...and I love it. Won him a grammy. The audio quality is not great on this one, but this one has a nice shot of the movie poster...



    Much better audio quality and some pretty scenery...

    Can't believe no one has said "Bohemian Rhapsody" in Wayne's World!


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
