Rushmore (1999)
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.

Star Alchemist's rating:

Belle & Sebastian - There's too much love

One of the sweetest love stories in cinema, wish more people knew Brazilian movies.

Also, one of the catchiest songs ever.

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.

Star Alchemist's rating:
People who added this item 5741 Average listal rating (3874 ratings) 7.7 IMDB Rating 8
Donnie Darko (2002)
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.

The Graduate (1967)
Simon & Garfunkel - The Sounds Of Silence

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.

Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine

Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen

"Heroes" is one of my favorite songs, but the scene didn't catch me.

But who can resist to Emma Watson saying "OH MY GOD, they are playing good music!" and doing an awesome dance with Ezra Miller? Also, great scene for the movie.

Star Alchemist's rating:

Juno (2007)
Michael Cera and Ellen Page - Anyone Else But You

Almost Famous (2000)

This movie is silly as hell, BUT this scene is really charming. And despite not liking the movie, thanks to it I discovered one of my favorite songs.

Begin Again (2014)
Adam Levine - Lost Stars

This could be a very cliche scene, but happily the director/writer John Carney takes the right decision by the end of the song.

The movie is not as great as Once, but I liked this scene better than most of the songs of the first movie.

Watchmen (2009)
Bob Dylan - Times are a-changin'

I'm a huge fan of Alan Moore's comic Watchmen, but I couldn't enjoy what Zack Snyder tried to do here.

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

Tsc.



PS: This was my first contact with a Bob Dylan song, believe it or not.
Star Alchemist's rating:
People who added this item 587 Average listal rating (384 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.6
The Hurricane (2000)
Bob Dylan - Hurricane

First I knew the song, and than movie. This was the song that convinced me to listen more of Dylan's work, and the movie that made see how Denzel Washington is a genius actor.



PS: Yeah, there are a lot of copyright issues with this song, god knows why, and it's impossible to find Dylan singing it.

Wonder Boys (2000)
Bob Dylan - Things have changed

"C'MON! Him again?"
Yeah, him again. Aand again I first knew the song and than the movie.
It's a "feels good" story, but nothing very remarkable. But this is probably the catchiest of Dylan's songs.

Star Alchemist's rating:
The Seatbelts - Gotta Knock A Little Harder

Up to this date, no anime had such soundtrack as Cowboy Bebop did. The movie wasn't a let down and closed the flick with the same quality of the show.



"Are you living in the real World?"
Star Alchemist's rating:
Komm, Sรผsser Tod

Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of the greatest achievements of Japanese animation, extending it's success to the whole Pop Culture.

The End of Evangelion is everything that any fan was hoping for, and the Third Impact scene is one of the most amazing things I've watched in my life.

Anthony Hamilton & Elayna Boynton - Freedom

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.

I didn't need to see the rest of the movie to know that I was watching another one of his masterpieces.

Star Alchemist's rating:
Tenacious D - Kickapoo

I won't lie, I'm a huge fan of Jack Black and this is one of the funniest movies I've seen.

The awkwardest part? I watched this movie in my first date with my girlfriend, glad that she is a fan of Dio and everything worked great.

Star Alchemist's rating:
People who added this item 4275 Average listal rating (2909 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
School Of Rock - It's a long way to the top (If you wanna Rock n Roll)

This movie is pure fun from beginning to the end.
Jack Black's energy flows trough all the songs, and the last one closes the movie with a golden key.

The whole OST is amazing, and when I re-listened it this music caught my attention. And the scene is so sweet.

Today, this is one of my favorite songs, no doubt about it.

The song that gives the name to the film is as great.

Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky

Best song from the best Marvel movie(up to this date). And it fits so perfectly in the trailer, oh yeah.



PS: No footage of the song in the movie.

PS2: Hooked on a feeling is also pretty cool, but Spirit in the Sky is still my favorite.

Load more items (1 more in this list)

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!
