The first time I watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) was the most magical musical moment in film I've ever experienced. It was the first
time I've seen a movie with an overture, so it was a really unexpected treat for me.
Just a slow-moving starfield and this beautiful music:
I haven't seen the movie, but have heard the song. I'm sure it works better in the movie because I'm not a big fan of Aerosmith.
Okay you'll think this is really silly, but I got a little teary-eyed hearing this song on the 2nd-to-last episode of Seinfeld
I don't really like this song much, but Seinfeld was a big part of my life. The humor in that show kept me plugging away amidst all the chaos and
confusion. I felt like a chapter of my life was also coming to an end so it did have an emotional impact. So yeah, seeing some behind-the-scenes
footage with this Green Day song hit me.

I've sat here for a while now and weighed for and against whether or not I should post these. On such a serious place like ATS I wouldn't want to be
seen as childish, but these two songs really made an impression on me so here goes anyway .
I'm a huge fan of animated movies and cartoons, so these were the ones that popped up in my head when I read your post. I can't choose one or the
other as they have a definate tie on my "best" list.
"Once upon a December" from Anastasia, and "I see the light" from Tangled.
Im kind of a big fan of Kevin Smith movies, when i first watched Clerks II the ending really got to me. It was just epic!
I'm kinda having trouble finding the ending scene to this for some reason. -_-
Dante Hicks: Can you feel it?
Randal Graves: Feel what?
Dante Hicks: Today is the first day of the rest of our lives.
And then the song misery by Soul Asylum kicks in after those last lines.
Another piece that i thought was really good from Clerks II was the kind of musical scene where they sang ABC 123 song. I dont really like when they
do sing in movies but Kevin Smith seemed to pulled this one off just right.
I like all the "Evita" songs and the Nicole Kidman "Moulin Rouge" (the first hour of the movie). And I just watched "Les Miserables" two times and
replayed many scenes more than that, and have to say that Anne Hathaway's second by second facial and emotional acting during the singing of her main
song in the film is likely the best acting I've ever seen - and she did it in one take (I read it was her fourth take, as she wanted to get more
emotion into the performance). Hathaway not only commands every scene she's in, she does it like few if any have done before.

I have to approve this. If you have ever truly given yourself over to someone....that movie speaks to you. That scene, that song....perfect.
For me....not many movie songs I liked to quite that extent. Queen of the Damned has a couple. The Crow has a few.
How about instead, i do a TV show. There was a very short lived show called Tattingers. It was revived a couple of times with changes. The theme
song I am referring to was in the original series (lasted less than a season). A lonely trumpet.....a piano....what a great song. I would love to
find out that there is a full song out there somewhere that they sampled for their series. BUt i don't think so.
