Rushmore (1998)
The Faces - Ohh La La

By the end of this movie, I had to conclusions:
1 - Wes Anderson definitely is one of my favorite directors.
2 - This is one of the greatest songs I've heard in ages.

Mother (2009)
Intro Song
The first scene of Mother is a masterpiece that delivers the whole movie during it's first minutes.

Of course, you have to watch the final scene to understand how the first one really works out.

Brilliant. Just brilliant directing.

Donnie Darko (2001)
Echo and the Bunnymen - Killing Moon

This movie has a great soundtrack, like Duran Duran's Notorious or Mad World (unfortunately it's not the Tears for Fears version).

But Killing Moon prepares the mood for the movie very well, and it's a less known song that I only discovered thanks to this pic.

I like the beginning of this movie, and it has one of the most brilliant endings. But unfortunately I don't like the middle of it very much.

Anyway, a classic masterpiece music opening and setting the mood for one of the greatest classics of the cinema.

But I can't deny that the intro is a masterpiece, if only he had keep the level for the whole movie.

Tarantino is the master of movies soundtracks, both previously movies proves this. But this is special, because I can't remember any particular scene so painful and touching like this one.

There are some songs that make a really strong impression in me during movies, and always become a must in my playlists.

I decided to list some of them here... they aren't great classic scenes/songs, it's a more personal experience.

There are songs from trailers, ending credits, intros and specific scenes... I hope you enjoy!
