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?

well...actually....it's been rerunning a lot lately. I watched it again very recently. much like the Planet Of The Apes movies from my youth.....I remembered it being TOTALLY AWESOME.....but watching it again....umm...there are some totally absolutely laughable moments....and said moments weren't supposed to be funny.

not a very good movie really. the nostalgic memory of it is so much better than the reality!

Yeah, it didn't age well. Watching it as a grown up doesn't help much, either. Not so easy to identify a bunch of gang punks as heroes when you're in your 40s.

See, I think placements like these are lame and uncreative. "Everybody Hurts".

Lame.

What's particularly creative and inspiring to me is when a non-hit song that only fans of a certain band know is used in a emotional and moving way.

Someone earlier mentioned the Radiohead song "Fake Plastic Trees" on the season finale of Entourage, which was brilliant (and in my long standing opinion, should have been the series ending episode).

That was an excellent example of creative song usage. When the obvious hit song is used, it's just another excuse for a network or movie studio to exploit their own publishing catalog.

Are we talking about changing your opinion of music you know or introducing new music you like.

If it's truly the former I can only think of the likes of Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet, but that's because they're actually expressly re-imagining the music or trying to pose it in a new light.

But then I try to really get a firm feeling of music I know. Close attention listening.

Another possibility is actually 'The End' in Apocolypse Now, as it married to the visuals and suggested some real inspiration. I'll probably catch flack, but soured on/tired of The Doors pretty early on.

As with any thread, it's up to the individual poster. But my original intent was how I hear a song differently because of the movie/show. Although I stumbled myself in explaining, as I mentioned a song I had, at the time, only really heard on a show. Who knows how I'd have viewed it otherwise.
But, for instance, Layla... good song, but I don't know if it'd be as meaningful to me if not for Goodfellas.
Everybody Hurts? The movie "When A Man Love a Woman," (which might've been the first time it was used.
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow?" -ER
Hell, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" from the old Dennis Miller HBO show.

Loved "La Bamba" the true story of Ritchie Valens who died along with Buddy Holly and JP "The Big Bopper" Richardson in 1959 now known, as "the Day the Music Died!"

There's a song, and I had heard it before, from an episode of Scrubs (great music in that show). It's actually a religious song, but was set to when Turk told Carla she was pregnant, and the celebration that followed. "All the Words."
Changed that song forever for me.
I could probably name 10 songs from that show alone. Colin Hay had several on Scrubs that did that.

Found a web page that is displaying it's top 50....

It reminded me of a few I had forgotten:

"Old Time Rock N Roll" - Risky Business
"Oh Yeah" - Ferris Beuller's Day Off
"times, they are a changin'" - Opening of Watchmen
"Goodbye Horses" - Silence of the Lambs (yep..."I'd F**k Me!")

The list also mentions roy orbison from Blue Velvet....while I dont recall that song......"Blue Velvet" obviously makes me recall the movie...

Enjoy: http://www.timeout.com/newyork/film/...ongs-in-movies
