Hey there, I'm currently looking at a university assignment focusing on music used in media, and I'm looking for examples for the topic I'm using at the moment. The topic I'm looking at is essentially how the same music has been used in completely different contexts and how they've had totally different reactions.

For example, how classical music is taken and used in advertising, or how a moderately successfull song from the early 70's experiences a revival through its use in a massively popular video game. I feel as if I have some memory of a movie somewhere using classical music during murder scenes, but for the life of me, I can't remember which film or films that was.

So, does anyone know of any examples of that sort of thing occurring?
i feel like Donnie Darko did this at some point...

Singing in the Rain during a rape scene in A Clockwork Orange.

That's the one I was thinking of!
Also, since you reminded me of Kubrick, the use of the Mickey Mouse Club March in Full Metal Jacket has always stricken me as somewhat of an example of this.

And kudos to the fella above with the tune from Sunshine.
