"You Always Hurt the Ones You Love" performed by Ryan Gosling

The song is featured in this trailer and matches beautifully with the imagery and helps define what the film is all about.

Loudon, Martha, and Rufus Wainwright all sang in this glorious biopic. Unfortunately the quality on these videos is poor and I wasn't able to find Martha's "I'll Be Seeing You"

A few songs from this music-filled film; but I don't think it qualifies as a musical.

"Her dream had come true, she was a folk singer"

Very sadly there is no video of this song on Youtube from the film. Here's the Joan Baez version, in case you forgot it.

Clearly a Pink Floyd song, he lies about writing it himself.

One of the more disturbing selections, of course the second half can't be shown on Youtube, but you kind of get the idea about what's going to happen...

It's a drama; but plenty of comedy in it too. It's sprinkled with goofy scenes, this is an example:

Mr. Turner (2014)
"Remember Me"

As Mr. Turner says himself, it's a song of lost love.

There are two songs from this film. The first is on the comedy version of this list.

It's also a considered comedy, but this is a more dramatic element.

"Real Love" (Audio Only)

I couldn't find the actual clip; but there is a beautiful moment in this brilliant animated film where the song is played.

This is a montage of the film with the song dubbed over. Still quite beautiful and you should be asking yourself, "Why the hell haven't I seen this film yet?"

Lisa sings 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' in an atypical style and setting serving as the turning point of the film.

UPDATED JUNE 2011

Songs can be a nice break from the drama or can beautifully reinforce a dramatic message. These are all those examples that aren't a musical. No breaking out into songs unnaturally.


Enjoy!
