Do you associate certain songs with a movie/tv show?

Have you ever heard a song in a movie or TV show? And then everytime you hear that song you ALWAYS think of that movie or tv show?

-Phil Collins 'In the Air Tonight' : Risky Business,
Spoiler:
Tom Cruise and Rebecca Demornay on the train.


-Journey 'Don't Stop Believin' : The Sopranos,
Spoiler:
the final scene of the series, and let's say I still hate how David Chase ended it.


-Styx 'Come Sail Away' : Freaks & Geeks,
Spoiler:
the pilot and the dance at the end. I actually like the song more now after seeing that scene for some reason.


-Derek and the Domino's 'Layla' : Goodfellas,
Spoiler:
the part where the Feds find all of the bodies of the mobsters that Jimmy Conway took out after the heist. It is the only the ending solo, but it's a powerful scene.

Whenever I heard "In The City" I think of The Warriors.

For Freaks And Geeks, I always think of "Lady" by Styx.

It's this topic pretty obvious if a song is on the soundtrack for that movie/TV show?

But anyway, "In The Air Tonight" and "I Don't Care Anymore" make me think of those key scenes in Miami Vice.

For "Come Sail Away" It's now always going to be Cartman singing it on South Park.

I can't listen to Led Zeppelin IV without thinking of Fast Times.

I'll always picture Wayne's World when I hear Bohemian Rhapsody.

Bon Jovi Wanted Dead or Alive I always think of the shootout with Crockett and Tubbs and Willie Nelson and Steve Buscemi in "El Viejo" a episode from Miami Vice.
