Songs that are indelibly linked to movie soundtracks

I know this might be more for the music threads but I never go over there and I want the usual gang's input. I thought this would be fun.

Please name a song that you can't hear anymore without thinking about the scene from a movie soundtrack that it was used for.

For me, I can't hear Donovan's "Atlantis" without mentally seeing Jimmy and Tommy roughing up Billy Batts from "Goodfellas."

"Stuck in the Middle With You" from Reservoir Dogs. That song just got added in our last overhead music update at work, and even after 50+ times hearing it I still think of the movie.

And "Little Green Bag" from the same movie.

I've thought of a few more:

"I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow, from "Private School." (1983)

"Iko Iko" by the Belle Starrs, from "Rain Man."

"He'll Have to Go," by Jim Reeves, from "Desert Hearts."

Princes of the Universe - Queen from Highlander.

Not only a great song for a great movie (the original one) but written for the movie.

As a bonus, it is also used as the open credit song in Highlander the TV series which I'd argue is at least a top 5 tv show music.

I'll echo the mentions for "In The Air Tonight" (Miami Vice) and "Stuck In The Middle With You" (Reservoir Dogs).

And I'll add:

Sia, "Breathe Me" (Six Feet Under)

Paul Young, "Everytime you Go Away" (Planes, Trains and Automobiles)

Interesting. I didn't know Cochrane and Red Rider ever had a song in a movie soundtrack.
