Songs Forever Tied to Scenes from Movies

In this ever-growing list, I am excluding songs specifically written for movies (sorry, Kenny Loggins and Irving Berlin)
  • Vera Lynn's "We'll Meet Again," the final scene of Kubrick's Dr Strangelove in which numerous and sundry nuclear bombs explode and destroy the Earth
  • Steeler's Wheel's "Stuck in the Middle with You," the (in)famous ear scene from Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs
  • Genesis' "Sussudio," the 3-way scene in American Psycho
  • Strauss' "Thus Spoke Zarathustra," from the evolution scene of Kubrick's 2001
  • Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," from Wayne's World
  • Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World," from the chaos/napalm scenes in Good Morning Vietnam
  • The Squeeze's "Tempted," from the Winona Ryder driving scene in Reality Bites
  • Katrina and the Waves' "Walkin' on Sunshine," from the mix-tape scene in High Fidelity
  • Elliot Smith's "Miss Misery," from the end credits scene of Good Will Hunting
