"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.

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.

Funny People (2009)
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?"

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!
