The Banana Thug: I usually hate this kind of music, but "Angel" by Massive Attack was used so perfectly in "Flight of the Phoenix." It was very haunting and emotional (when one of the crew members was shot by the nomads-turned-thieves. This is the exact same song used in "The West Wing," when President Bartlett's daughter was kidnapped and Leo was running to break the news to the president. Used very effectively there as well. Like I said, I hate this kind of music, but can appreciate it when it is used so effectively to complement a scene in an integral way.
Badgers: I know they'd have to pick 2 songs from the same movie, but come on...
BeatrixK: Badgers: I know they'd have to pick 2 songs from the same movie, but come on...Oh, so very much this!Let we forget....

walrusonion: Another scene from Boogie Nights that could have been on here is the pool party scene withMama Told Me Not To Come/ Spill The Wine. (new window)
the nameless one: Number 1 should have been lovely lovely ludwig van's 5th used in a clockwork orange
EKU Colonel: Oh and where is "Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta" from Office Space???
tbriggs: "We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when....."The perfect distillation of 'good war' nostalgia fueling the cold war, as seen over a montage of nuclear destruction. It doesn't get any better than that.
Killer Refresh Rate: Not in the list, but I'd say an honorable mention should go to Ordinary World, in Layer Cake. (new window)
Garet Garrett: Coming late to the party, but Magnolia's use of Aimee Mann's Wise Up deserves mention. Great song, awesome scene, superbly integrated.
