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, Tom Cruise and Rebecca Demornay on the train.

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

-Styx 'Come Sail Away' : Freaks & Geeks, 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, 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 find Siegfried's Funeral Music much more anamnestic of Excalibur. What a majestic soundtrack!

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." :lol:

"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)

Even though the song they played was from physical Graffiti - wonder how many people never caught this mess up.

If you haven't see Vision Quest you should. Definitely one of my favorite 80s films - even has a performance of a young Madonna in it:)
