Well, I'm sittin' here beside the railroad track
And I'm waitin' for that train to bring her back
If she's not on the five-nineteen
Then I'm gonna know what sorrow means
And I'm gonna cry, cry, cry,
All the way home
All the way home
All the way home

Are you even supposed to be here today?

My God, that list is total shiat.

Good Luck Chuck has no business being on a list of 10 best anything.
 
2011-09-21 11:31:43 AM
Did Serpoltas just say "Making fark"?

They don't have Chief Brody, Matt Hooper and Quint singing "Show Me the Way To Go Home" in Jaws. What is this I don't even.

First thing that came to my mind was the bathroom scene from "Lean on Me".
 
2011-09-21 11:39:19 AM
what a rotten list. All those mentioned above should be there. "You lost that lovin feeling" in top gun makes my skin crawl.

IMHO the only one on the list that should be on the list is "Goodnight Sweetheart" from 3 men and a baby.

That, "Afternoon Delight" in Anchorman, and maybe "Say a Little Prayer" from My Best Friend's Wedding. I thought that scene was funny despite the incredibly coincidence that every person in that diner just happened to know the song by heart.

But apart from that, yeah, every suggestion in this thread is better than most of what's on the list.

No Rocky trash can bon fire equals fail
 
2011-09-21 08:54:39 PM
I know it's not technically an acapella, but is the one from Mulholland Drive on the list?
