Your favorite movie/music moment?

I've been talking about ganster flicks in another thread and it gave me the idea for this thread. My two favorite movie music moments are, first, from Goodfellas, with Cream's Sunshine of Your Love playing in the background, Jimmy Conway's (DeNiro) smoking at the bar with that pissed off look on his face pondering whether to whack out Morrie because Morrie won't stop hassling Jimmy for his share of the Lufthansa heist. The scene and the song were perfect synergy (spacedoubt
). Here it is:

Second, from Casino, when those two guys were cheating at blackjack and Ace Rothstein (DeNiro) had picked up on it and was watching them while Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart's I Ain't Superstitious played in the background. Great song with sneaky, cool flow to it just like the scene itself. Of course the song stopped playing once they cattle prodded one of the cheaters

What are your favorite movie/music moments?

Edit: Added videos. Couldn't find the Casino scene, but here's what happened after the music stopped playing!

I might have to pick Apocalypse Now as having the best movie music moments for a non-musical.

Can anyone hear The End by The Doors or Ride of the Valkyries without thinking of Apocalypse Now? The scene with the Playboy Bunnies on stage in front of a combat-weary band of soldiers while Susie Q blares out of the stage speakers. The whole surreal vibe of the movie is magnified by the sound track.

And Kramer vs. Kramer won Best Picture that year.

I thought of another of my favorites. When Forrest Gump was at that Black Panther meeting with Jenny and Jimi Hendrix's Hey Joe was playing in the background. That guy slapped Jenny and in slo-mo you see Forrest get enraged and he just beats the crap out of the guy.

I also like in Forrest Gump when he and Bubba were flying into Vietnam and CCR's Fortunate Son was playing.

Come to think of it, the part where Forrest just kept running from coast to coast had some great music too; the Doobie Brothers and Jackson Browne namely.

Seriously good soundtrack in that movie.

The Ear Scene where the guy gets his ear cut off from Reservoir Dogs. The song Stuck In The Middle With You by Stealers Wheel is playing.

Here's the scene. Note: The scene is a little gory. There's some blood in it. Just so you know.

Rocky 4 when at the end, sly as rocky is giving his new world order speech. he goes on about we can all live on this earth together even though we have differences.
i think the song is Heart's On Fire - John Cafferty, not sure.

i know its a weird one, but not sure if its movie or just a series, but when i was young i liked fame(you know that dance school in new york show or movie), you know while there were dancing, and the tune would come on. really liked dancing in my life, and it stirred something in me as a kid.

My favorite too is in Forrest Gump when him and Bubba land in Vietnam.

In Billy Madison when Adam Sandler phones Steve Buscemi and apologizes for whatever he did to him, and Buscemi scratches him off his hit list, and ELO's "Telephone Line" is playing.

In Tommy Boy when Chris Farley & David Spade are fighting over the radio and a Carpenters song (Superstar) is playing and then it shows them slinging snot and belting out "Don't you remember you told me you loved me baby."

In "Twilight Zone: The Movie" at the end when John Lithgow is removed from the airplane and he's in the ambulance and Dan Akroyd is the driver and CCR's "Midnight Special" kicks in.

In Meet the Fockers, during the supposedly touch football game, Gary Glitter's "Rock & Roll Part II" plays.

In Blow when "Cant You See" by Marshall Tucker Band plays.

I like lots of scores too, from like The Hunt for Red October, Braveheart, Alexander etc.

Here's a blast from the past - Rocky Horror Picture Show's Time Warp

I thought of a couple of other great movie/music moments.

The drug deal gone bad scene from Boogie Nights with Night Ranger's Sister Christian and Rick Springfield's Jessie's Girl playing in the background. A great building of tension in this scene. Here it is.


And let's not forget when Dirk Diggler tries to become a recording artist.

Damn good movie!

Gotta agree on the Time Warp, great moment.

ANYTHING from Jesus Christ Superstar. Here's one:

Damn I like piano in rock.

The best tune in Grease, Greased Lightning. Some language:

Can you tell I'm a little older?

I want to throw in some great movie score music moments here.

Roy Hobbs final homerun in The Natural. One of the great sports movie scenes of all time.

The scene from Platoon where Elias was left behind for dead, then found to still be alive, running away from the NVA. Powerful scene.

The opening credits for Superman Returns movie. This version sounded better than the one from the original movie. IMO John Williams' greatest score.

Don't laugh at this one. The final scene from Against All Odds. Emotional scene and a great song.

Unfortunately I couldn't find the final scene from Field of Dreams where Ray asks his dad if he wants to play catch. It's a two hanky scene for me.

More to come..........

This is the In-A-Gada-Da-Vida scene from Manhunter, the original Red Dragon movie, and the first Hannibal Lechter movie, directed by Michael Mann. This movie was way better than the remake with Ed Norton and Anthony Hopkins. In this scene William Peterson takes out the serial killer. Enjoy!

I love the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" that's my favorite musical ever!

I also like that part of the "Walk The Line" movie where he's playing in the prison... Just something about that scene!
