So what are some of your favorite scenes in movies / tv shows that have music that just fits perfectly with what is happening on screen.

Being a fan of Wes Anderson movies I would have to say these two scenes are some of my favorites:

Darjeeling Limited / Play with Fire - Rolling Stones

The Life Aquatic / Staralfur - Sigur Ros
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPMf8G8Pi5o


Also the last scene of the series finale of Six feet Under with Breath Me by Sia
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNwARV9tPUw


Now your guys turn.

Look up anything Quentin Tarantino has ever done and you'll find bunch of awsome scenes with perfect music.

I just watched Public Enemies yesterday and the song 10 Million Slaves by Otis Taylor fit in so well with that movie

I liked the use of music in that movie also. Nice choice.

Another scene I liked was the ending of Donnie Darko with Mad World by Gary Jules

Also not a scene in particular but the use of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, throughout Clockwork Orange, really made me view that song differently. It creeps me out whenever I listen to it now.

That entire movie was just one big excuse to play daunting classical music.

On topic, I like the score in most of Tim Burton's movies. Danny Elfman is the guy who does them, I believe.

The scene in Clerks 2 where everybody is kinda thinking about all of the crazy stuff going on and deciding what to do next where 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins plays. fits perfectly in my opinion.

A gazillion songs would have fitted that.

Not much has been said for TV...

John Cale's Hallelujah cover in Scrubs.

Steve Earle's I Feel Alright over The Wire's season 2 montage, I prefer it over the final Way Down in the Hole montage.

Johnny Cash' When the Man Comes Around in the final scene of Generation Kill.

And a movie that sticks out for great usage of pre-existing tracks is Fight Club. Only two are used (Goin' Out West by Tom Waits and Where is My Mind? by the Pixies), but fuck... they're used well.

The duel in the middle of For A Few Dollar's More. When Indigo is playing the music box and the music keeps getting more intense and turns into this AMAZING organ piece and then pregressively awesome trumpet pieces and then in the end it goes back to the music box music. It's called La Resa Dei Conti.

Then there's pretty much all of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
"YOU SON OF A-" WA-EE-YA-EE-YAA!

Classic. Ennio Morricone is a Genie.

Kick-Ass had an awesome soundtrack/score all the way through. The music for that film was perfect I think.

That film was just awesome overall.

The scene in "The One", starring Jet Li, where the rat bomb goes off and at the same moment Disturb's Down With The Sickness fires up. Perfect fit.
#37
The art gallery scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Quite probably my favourite part in any movie, ever.
