"Oh Yeah" seems to fit in really well with Ferris Bueller's Day Off, especially when you see the Ferrari for the first time - Ohh yeaaaahhh...  smile And as for Don't You, whenever I listen to that, all I can think of is John Bender's fist in the air, in his own little celebration  smile Oh and We Are Not Alone by Karla DeVito seems to fit in with that film as well, when they're all dancing  smile

Let's see...my favorite song/music from a movie, what would that be?

The Pulp Fiction Soundtrack, and as single song, 'Jungle Boogie'.

In my opinion it's a million times better than all those Goldsmith/Hans Zimmer, whatever stuff because it's got something called STYLE!

If I had to choose an orchestal soundtrack, I'd take the one from 'The Mummy', by Goldsmith I think it was.

The Resident Evil theme is also good, in it's category of music, but all that is nothing compared to the soundtrack of Pulp Fiction.

I can't believe I forgot to mention Ennio Morricone! His western themes were fantastic, as was The Mission ST.

That is the song during the lobby shootout, I think the composer mentions that in his audio comentary.

I am also compelled to add to my list of favorite movie soundtracks Ronin and the Harry Potter series.  I actually am starting to believe that the first HP film's soundtrack is easily one of Williams' best works.  I love the way the main theme can seamlessly move from haunting and eerie to distressed and almost scary.  There are also moments throughout the rest of the soundtrack that range from beautifully pastoral, to violently active, to heroically triumphant.  I own several soundtracks by John WIlliams, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is the only one I enjoy listening to from start to finish.

The theme from American Beauty is nice.

Rob Dugan's 'Clubbed To Death' from The Matrix is awsome, definitely one of my favorite pieces of cinema music, as is the 'Imperial March', but everyone says that.

A friend reminded me of this movie the other day, and the song does rule.

Has anyone notice on the film Donnie Darko at the end, where they play 'Joy Division - Love will tear us apart'. It says it on the end credits, though it sounds completely different to the 7" Vinyl Single & on the complimation, Substance. Is it remixed or is it a original?

I find the Pulp Fiction soundtrack addictive.

My favorite scores come from Howard Shore and Danny Elfman. Hans Zimmer has a couple of good ones.
 But my favorite score is, definitely, the Lord of the Rings trilogy followed by Schindler's List by Williams.

To continue the John Hughes theme...

In Some Kind of Wonderful, I love how "Catch My Fall" by Billy Idol starts to play whenever Duncan enters a scene.

I also like the scene where "Miss Amanda Jones" by the Rolling Stones plays while Amanda, Keith, and Watts are all getting ready to go out.

Playing "Can't Help Falling In Love" by Lick the Tins as the ending credits roll is great too.

Rushmore is a movie that makes great use of its soundtrack. The "You are Forgiven" scene is especially good (in fact, I think it's great).

I'm suprised no-one has mentioned The Blues Brothers soundtrack (either that or I'm sad)
So that soundtrack is my favorite, except jailhouse rock, which is still good, but not as good.

Also the theme music from the films :
Predator
A fist full of dollars
For a Few Dollars more
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, timeless classics mon.

'Can you feel the love tonight' by Elton John, from the Lion King, is my personal movie favourite. It is a truly beautiful, emotional song.
The whole Lion King soundtrack by Tim Rice and Elton John is one of the greatest of all time.
I also really love 'Streets of Philadelphia by Bruce Springsteen. Hearing that song sends shivers up my spine.

I think it is an original. I just caught the video on VH1 Classics and it sound the same.
I doubt that they would remix it but I could be wrong.

Joy Divison - 'Love will tear us apart' plays when the Halloween party is on. I was thinking of 'Mad Mad World' sung by Gary Jules, I said the wrong song and the wrong time. My apologies.
