Nobody mentioned "She's Like the Wind" from Dirty Dancing?

FAIL

I would mention more songs from Dazed and Confused but I'm still whackin off to the Kate Upton thread . . .
 
2013-02-21 11:26:28 PM  

bump: "Layla"

/Goodfellas


I'm with you on Layla, but at least they got the Atlantis part.  Should have been on top IMHO.
 
2013-02-21 11:28:30 PM  

Surool: Pretty much all of the music moments in either Goodfellas or Pulp Fiction are golden.


Yep.
 
2013-02-21 11:29:42 PM  

Christian Bale: I would nominate this as one of the best.

After all she was a great big girl.
 
2013-02-21 11:31:57 PM  
Hmm...

I'd think Pulp Fiction and Vanilla Sky would be on there.

Armored Saint "Hanging Judge" - Hellraiser 3
Cannibal Corpse "Hammer Smashed Face" - Ace Ventura
Napalm Death "Twist the Knife Slowly" - Mortal Combat

My Way - Sid and Nancy
 
2013-02-21 11:35:59 PM  
Still pissed that Dirty Dancing ripped off Be My Baby from Mean Streets, especially when some vapid woman talks about the song in reference to Dirty Dancing. No, biatch, it's from Mean Streets, not that Patrick Swayze wankfest.
 
2013-02-21 11:53:47 PM  
Alice's Restaurant
Maximum Overdrive
The Graduate
Purple Rain
Rocky Horror Picture show
Tommy
The Clash: Rude Boy
American Graffitti
 
2013-02-21 11:57:09 PM  
Wrong song from Fast Times!!!

Zeppelin is great, but the rock and roll moment from that movie used "Moving In Stereo" by The Cars.

Yes that one scene.

had98c: Needs "Nowhere Fast" or "Tonight is What it Means to be Young" by Fire Inc in Streets of Fire.


This  X1000.

Diane Lane = FAP!
 
2013-02-22 12:13:26 AM  
Freebird in The Devil's Rejects
 
2013-02-22 12:13:41 AM  
What? No fireworks exploding from Reggie Wanker's (Malcolm McDowell) codpiece in "Get Crazy"?

Fail.

//When is this coming out on DVD dammit?!

That. It's impossible to hear that song and not think of that scene.
 
2013-02-22 12:15:27 AM  

Ryker's Peninsula: Armored Saint "Hanging Judge" - Hellraiser 3
Cannibal Corpse "Hammer Smashed Face" - Ace Ventura
Napalm Death "Twist the Knife Slowly" - Mortal Combat
Iron Maiden "Flash of the Blade" - Phenomena
Accept "Fast as a Shark" - Demons


Lolwat?! No. None of that.
 
2013-02-22 12:29:45 AM  
Fails miserably without this NSFW epic moment in moviemaking history.
 
2013-02-22 12:41:58 AM  

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Sister Christian in Boogie Nights


Jessie's Girl worked well there too.

/back to the Kate Upton photos.
 
2013-02-22 12:45:13 AM  

Great_Milenko: Music played over the credits is not a "rock and roll movie moment".  Sorry.




I tend to disagree
 
2013-02-22 12:49:22 AM  

fusillade762: bump: "Bohemian Rhapsody"

/Wayne's World

It's #4.


I wonder how many songs went on to chart in the top 10 *twice*.  I'm not talking remakes by other artists, either.

/it did better the 2nd time around, too
//party on!
 
2013-02-22 12:55:34 AM  

AirForceVet: I was disappointed this wasn't about rock n roll movies but rock n roll songs used in movies like #2, A Hard Day's Night. No Gimmie Shelter, Candy, not even Stop Making Sense.

And they forgot the Banana Splits theme song in "Kick Ass" where Hit Girl stabs in.

For shame ...


On what planet is "A Hard Day's Night" not a rock n' roll movie?
 
2013-02-22 01:06:28 AM  
 
2013-02-22 01:07:23 AM  
* sigh *
The Breakfast Club
Valley Girl
Ghost World
The Lost Boys - the cover of I Still Believe has to go down as one of the signature moments of that era
 
2013-02-22 01:17:45 AM  
Stealers Wheel: "Stuck in the Middle With You" -Reservoir Dogs
 
2013-02-22 01:21:07 AM  
Dare To Be Stupid (Weird Al) - Transformers (the original cartoon movie)

Head Over Heals - Donnie Darko (cant believe i could find this on youtube, just a bunch of remixes)

Let's Get It On (Jack Black) - High Fidelity (sent chills down my back when i first saw it - didnt expect it to be actually awesome)

Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster (Geto Boys)- Office Space (printer scene)

The Last Dragon - The Last Dragon (final fight scene)
 
2013-02-22 01:27:21 AM  

aiiee: Good list, buuuuuuut:

"Something In The Air Tonight" Phil Collins in "Risky Business" perhaps the greatest rocknroll moment in film


I was intrigued by your comment, so I popped over to YouTube... and discovered just how many awful, awful covers of that song exist.

(a lot)
 
2013-02-22 01:56:14 AM  
Ann Margaret, Tommy, baked beans.

Need I say more?
 
2013-02-22 01:57:12 AM  
And not one goddamn mention of the Talking Heads.
 
2013-02-22 02:07:04 AM  
"Everybody Wants Some" - Better Off Dead
 
2013-02-22 02:10:10 AM  
No Tears for Fears - Head over Heels from Donnie Darko?

How about "Across 110th Street" playing as we behold the glory that is Pam Grier in Jackie Brown?
 
2013-02-22 03:36:30 AM  
They forgot to mention one of the reasons "Looking out my Back Door" is so appropriate for that scene. The Dude just got a "full physical" from the doctor.

He's very thurough.

I have to hit the ceiling every time I hear it in my car, still.

Grandemadaca: List fails with out PJ Soles singing "Rock n Roll High School" in Rock n Roll High School.

/Oh, and the Ramones were very good in it, too.


I was thinking of the scene with her in the bra and panties.

Hot!
 
2013-02-22 07:03:44 AM  
list also fails without this:

Lesser known, but still one of the best.  (NSFW)

Jim. It's late. I doubt your doctor would approve of this. Get some sleep.

The scene in Summer of Sam when Baba Oreilly is playing

2013-02-22 07:39:14 AM  

The Flexecutioner: Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangster (Geto Boys)- Office Space (printer scene)


Except that's not rock and roll.

How about:

Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - Hundred Mile High City

2013-02-22 08:23:30 AM  

kingfismit: Seriously, no "Johnny B. Goode" in Back to the Future?


1.bp.blogspot.com

And The Carpenters' scene in Tommy Boy.
 
2013-02-22 08:31:56 AM  
Or this scene from Reservoir Dogs?  Very disappointed indeed.
