Movies using music... Has it changed how you've heard a song?

I admit I am easily manipulated by music within scenes on TV and in movies. It's put in there for a reason... to elicit an emotion, and I fall victim to it every time. Scorsese, Sorkin, Crowe, and Soderburg are, IMO, the best at this.

My question is this...
Has there ever been a song that, due to its placement in a show or movie, has changed the way you've heard it forever?

What got me thinking about this was the Dire Straits song, "Brothers in Arms," which was in the West Wing episode, "Two Cathedrals." (BTW, for my money the greatest TV episode ever created). Without being knowledgeable of the lyrics, or anything about the song other than the mood it set on that show, it's now a song I seek out due to the way it brings me calm when the shot hits the fan.

Any song like that for you?

THIS!

No director is consistently better at using music to create art in movies.

That wasn't Tarantino.

That was Karyn Rachtman.

Cameron Crowe has such an amazing feel for soundtrack and score but his best friend from childhood, Danny Bramson is the real star.

As great as the Tiny Dancer was in that movie, Mona Lisa and Mad Hatters really gets me every time. Plus, The Raspberries "Go All the Way" is such an incredible song, heard in one the Lester Bangs scenes, but for some unknown reason, it's not on the soundtrack

Also, an episode of Entourage used Radiohead's "fake plastic trees" in an awesome way as well. Entourage just used music in a great way all the time.
Goodfellas and Reservoir Dogs were the first two that jumped into my mind. I also like the way When You Wish Upon A Star is used throught Close Encounters.

Already mentioned - Donnie Darko "Mad World" and "Head over Heels" (and depending upon what version of the film you watch.....the opening with Echo and the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon" is amazing).

Sister Christian and Boogie Nights for sure

Fincher uses music in his films quite nicely (opening credits of Seven being a NIN remix of "Closer", etc.)

Baz Luhrmann has a way with music as well (the gospel rendition of "When Doves Cry" in Romeo and Juliet comes to mind).

MY fathers gun in Elizabethtown.

Peter Gabriel in Say Anything.

Crowe uses music as well as anyone.

Pretty much anytime a song was used in Forrest Gump, it was perfect.
