You know, every time you hear a well-known song and immediately associate it with a well known movie it has been in. I'm not talking about theme songs or songs written specifically for the movie, famous songs that were then used in a movie. Post your favourites.

Can you guys post the scenes of the movie it's in? If not it's cool
Sorry man, I didn’t read the OP properly. My fucked up man-flu is preventing any sort of comprehension, effort or care factor. Oops.

We're starting big. The rape scene is far more shocking and memorable, but this scene sticks out just for how messed up it is and Patrick Magee's facials.


Sticking with the same theme, maybe one of the most iconic movie scenes of the 90s. I've heard Tarantino describe it beautifully, that the audience is complicit because Madsen is giving this fun performance to a cute pop song and then things go dark.


The scene that brought Queen into my life.


Sticking with Queen, one of the more memorable scenes from one of the best comedies of the 00s. A wonderful showcase for Wright being able to put a scene together and a precursor to what we'd see in Baby Driver.

I also love the finale set to You're My Best Friend.

Didn't know what to make of this movie, then this scene hits and I can't stop laughing. Amazing build-up and such a cathartic scene.


The Beach Boys and Tom Cruise just go together. Never really saw the song going with a Psych Thriller but it works well here.


I heard there was a me too movement against Squints? Loved this movie, we probably kept the local Civic in business on renting this bad boy alone every other week. A-tier soundtrack, the Tequila scene is great too, but some of you maybe having dinner so I'll spare you the gruesome details.

EDIT: Damn, YouTube botched this. So in this version you have the narration that sells it, but it also cuts out her initial reaction and the 'he's in deep shit' which is delivered masterfully.

But the ultimate and one of the most obvious...


Easily my favourite guilty pleasure movie of all-time.

You get a 3-1 with Sister Christian playing earlier in the scene. However anytime I hear Jessie's Girl I'm always reminded me of Marky Mark's vacant stare.

Layla and Goodfellas was the first one that came to mind, which was posted in OP.

Lux Aeterna is pretty sweet as well.
