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'

Werewolves of London is mostly know for An American Werewolf in London.

Born to be Wild has been used dozen times in different movies, but the iconic use of it is, of course, in Easy Rider.

I'm Alright is famous due to Caddyshack.

And Moving in stereo has probably been used a few times too, but the iconic scene is obviously the Phoebe Cates scene in Fast Times At Ridgemont High.

Also Sprach Zarathustra, as previously mentioned, would be 2001

I'm not sure about the others.

Here's one for you, what movie made excellent use of Led Zepplin's Bron-Yy-Aur?

Ok so it looks like we're mostly on the same page wink.gif Here's what I was thinking with these songs:

Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London
Pool hall scene in "The Color of Money" where Tom Cruise's character just can't help himself.


Steppenwolf - Born to be Wild
Easy Rider, of course.


Eric Clapton -Layla
Montage from "Goodfellas" where the bodies start getting discovered after the big heist


Nancy Sinatra - These Boots Were Made For Walkin'
"Full Metal Jacket" scene where the hooker saunters up to the soldiers


Not sure of the artist but a particular cover of Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
Lucy Liu v. Uma Thurman showdown in "Kill Bill"


Kenny Loggins - I'm Alright
Caddyshack intro and outro


Aretha Franklin - Respect
Blues Brothers diner scene where Aretha's character is none too happy about the Brothers coming back to recruit their old guitar and sax players



The Cars - Moving in Stereo
Jackson Browne - Somebody's Baby
Both from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." Phoebe Cates and Jennifer Jason Leigh in their prime.eek.gif


Heart and Soul on piano
Tom Hanks in the giant piano at the Toy Store playing with the big toy company boss in "Big."


Also Sprach Zarathustra

"2001" of course



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


Neil Diamond - Sweet Caroline

"Beautiful Girls" - a favorite movie of mine that I think isn't as widely seen because people think it's a chick flick from the name when really it's quite the opposite



Journey - Don't Stop Believin
Final scene from the "Sopranos" finale. I really think this scene did for this song what Pulp Fiction did for John Travolta

Hmm...most of the ones that come to the top of my head have been mentioned, don't think these have....

One that really isn't a single song but rather the whole album is Mona Bone Jakon by Cat Stevens for Harold & Maude.

Day0 by Harry Belafonte from Beetlejuice

I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher in Groundhog Day.

Just Dropped In to See What Condition my Condition was in by First Edition (with Kenny Rogers)in The Big Lebowski.

I forgot to mention Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City" as used in the beginning of Die Hard with a Vengeance.

John McTiernan really had a knack for editing the work of his composers. I bought the recently released 2-CD soundtrack for Die Hard with a Vengeance, and it is interesting just how much of Michael Kamen's work McTiernan chopped-up and discarded.

I give. Must be a movie I haven't seen, as this is one of my favorite LedZep songs, and I'm sure I would've remembered if I heard it featured in a movie.

Yep, that's the one.

It's used in the scene where the young Cameron Crowe is taking his first taxi ride in NYC. Which mirrors the scene in The Song Remains The Same where they play Bron-Yr-Aur during the limo ride to Madison Square Garden.

I couldn't find a clip from Almost Famous, but here's the scene from TSRTS:

Well, Call Me is from American Gigilo.
Tequila could be from any number of films, but most probably know it from PeeWee's Big Top.

Rock and Roll is from Risky Business ...

Just realized Gary Wright's Dream Weaver was actually only in a very minor part of the movie I was thinking of. I just thought it was a funny song choice and stuck in my memory. The main song associated with the movie is actually:

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

That's it! That scene is so eerie to me now after 9/11.

Didn't remember the song being in American Werewolf in London (although it would seem to make obvious sense) so I did a little research and John Landis apparently tried but couldn't get the rights. Guess Scorsese's got more pull. At 00:51 is the scene I was thinking of:

Every pool hall in town suddenly had the song on their jukebox when I was in school around the time Color of Money came out.

Leaving On A Jet Plane - Armageddon (1998) - written by John Denver.

Dedicated to Asteroid DA14 which passed us at a distance of 17,000 miles...and the meteor that landed in Russia. Makes you think doesn't it?

Armageddon will mark its 15 year anniversary in July.
