Best Music in Movies?

It seems ever since the approach of the year 2000, everyone began making lists. Top 100_________ of the millenium, Top 10 _______if ________, and so forth. However, in the apst 6 years it hasn't really ceased. I'm not big on lists, and few are rarely appropriate for feldheim. However, Bullz-Eye recently compiled a list of the top music moments in film history. OK, so it's contemporary film history cause there were few things hotter than Marilyn Monroe's singing scenes in Some like it Hot:

It's a fun read with lots of video for those of you with bandwidth.

And it's much cleaner than my last post.

hell yeah. Ennio. He did Legend of 1900. A film only bettered by the wonderment of The Fighting Temptations

I like the Phillip Glass scores to the experimental trilogy of Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, and Naqoyqatsi; with the first being by far the best.

Danny Elfman lays down the dick with pretty much every Tim Burton movie.

Of course, one cannot forget (nor forgive) the drastic and "life-changing" influence that The Shins had on the artsy girls studying business at Georgetown. After Natalie Portman donned the headphones of God upon Zack Braff in the "generational masterpiece" of Garden State, I'm quite sure that the DJ's from National Public Radio were never able to pull so much ass in Adam's Morgan.

Swing-music's unnecessary and failed comeback in the mid-90's was due in large part to being prominently played in Clueless and Swingers.

Dude, speaking of the 90's, movie music was the backdrop for my first French kisses. I mean, how good was the music from the 90's rock-apathy-comedies of Empire Records, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Wayne's World, etc.

Perhaps the greatest music in a movie scene is the Safety Dance in Biodome (with extra props given for the midget). The stupidity of that scene made comebacks with all of the current shit-laugh-because-you're-supposed-to-comedies of today: "Afternoon Delight" in Anchorman.

Although it is hackneyed to say, the Disney movies of the 80's-90's had some great music. Aladdin being by far the best (made with the inspiration from Jafar).
