Okay, so this is the clip from the film, but the film is dubbed in what I believe to by German. The song is not dubbed, it is the actual american version.

To be perfectly honest, this, for the most part, is a downer of a movie. That changes at the very end with the dance number choreographed to this number. It's a wonderful song for a beautiful ending.

4. Magnolia (1999)
Song: "Save Me" by Aimee Mann



After three hours of watching the depressing people living out their depressing lives, most people were wondering if there would ever by any light. At the end, that question is answered with this song, giving a glimmer of hope for every character.

When it comes to ending a movie, there's really nobody better at picking songs than Wes Anderson, and he once again proves it here.

2. Funny People (2009)
Song: "Watching the Wheels (Acoustic Version" by John Lennon.



Whether you like the film or not, you gotta give credit to Judd Apatow for ending his movie with such an adequate song choice.

1. Rushmore (1998)
Song: "Ooh La La" by The Faces.



The movie itself was already a classic, but adding this song added a whole feeling. Summing up the entire plot in just a few lyrics, it goes further, adding a layer of hopefulness to the characters that just makes the movie worthwhile.

Great!, you should definitely add The Zodiac which ends with Hurdy Gurdy Man by Donovan.

Good list! My two favorites would have to be "Where is My Mind" and "The Wrestler". I still have to see Rushmore!
