Yeh, that's a pretty iconic one, and a pretty tingle inducing scene the first time I watched it.

And speaking of Platoon above, the Adagio for Strings that is the main theme for Platoon is completely linked in my brain with that movie, and it gives it a really nice atmosphere.

I don't think there's ANYONE left in the WORLD who doesn't associate Tubular Bells with the Exorcist.

I may be totally misremembering something, but I thought "Eye of the Tiger" was featured in Rocky 3? I coulda sworn it was in there almost as crude product placement, with Apollo telling Rocky to get the eye of the tiger when he was trying to get him prepared to fight Mr. T.

Rick James's Mary Jane from Friday. Actually, any song on that soundtrack makes me think of the particular scene it's used in cuz I've seen it so many times.

Well, I'm sure not everyone knows what songs were specifically made for which particular movie.... I was 5 when Top Gun came out for example, and I don't have the 'Pop Up Video' version that tells me Take My Breath Away was made for Top Gun.


Oh, another good one is Adele - Skyfall biggrin.gif

The original idea was not songs that basiclly "is the movie theme":

E.g. the Robin Hood example or Eye of The Tiger in Rocky.

but as always the threads evolve in different directions smile.gif

And Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell" for the Vincent/Mia dance scene at Jack Rabbit Slim's. Tarantino has an uncanny knack for getting the music just right IMHO.

This may be my #1 selection for a song fitting a movie in absolute perfection. Gerry Jules version of "Mad World" is just haunting and combined with the montage at the end of the movie it is as you say - devastating effect.

Mine are all pretty cheesy. Feel free to take away my man card:

"Cupid" Sam Cooke - Innerspace
" Tenderness" General Public - Clueless
" Eyes Without a Face" Billy Idol - Les yeux sans visage (he wrote the song after getting F*'d up and watching the movie)
" If You Leave " OMD - Pretty in Pink
" Send Me an Angel" Real Life - Rad
" More than a Woman" Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever

Two from Boomerang I hear a lot more than I probably should but love them (The Braxton track is my go-to SQ tester):
" Love Shoulda Brought You Home" Toni Braxton
" Set Adrift on Memory Bliss" PM Dawn

To test the premise of this thread, im just going to name the songs and see if you guys instantly associate them with the same movies and scenes that I do. Some I would consider "iconic" but some are just songs that played in particular scenes that have stuck in my head.

Warren Zevon - Werewilces of London

Steppenwolf - Born to be Wild

Eric Clapton -Layla

Nancy Sinatra - These Boots Were Made For Walkin'

Not sure of the artist but a particular cover of Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Kenny Loggins - I'm Alright

Aretha Franklin - Respect

The Cars - Moving in Stereo
Jackson Brosne - Somebody's Baby

Heart and Soul on piano

Also Sprach Zarathustra

Beethovens symphony no 9 (ode to joy) and Let it Snow Let It Snow Let It Snow - both used in the same movie

Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline

Journey - Don't Stop Believin'
