Favorite Obscure Movie Songs?

Just wondering what tunes did you all love after seeing the movie it was in...or a tune you would have NEVER of heard unless you saw the film...here are some of mine:

BLUE CRUSH
Nikka Costa - Everybody's Got Their Something

SWINGERS
Frank Sinatra - You Nobody Until Somebody Loves You

OCEANS 11
Elvis Presley - A Little Less Conversation

GONE IN 60 SECONDS
Moby - Flower

Actually the title of the song is Flower. It is a b-side on one of the Play singles.

"Where is My Mind" by The Pixies is in Fight Club

I was thinking of posting that one too. Probably the one thing I liked most about the movie.

That bouncy song from Career Opportunities that plays when Whalley and Jenny C skate around the store. A lot of people love that one, and it was unavailable on CD for along time (even on the soundtrack to that film.)

Gallo made great use of King Crimson's Moonchild and the Yes song Heart of the Sunrise, two songs that I've long loved, but which aren't well known to the gen. public in Buffalo 66.

Christina Ricci slowly dancing around a pole...

16 Candles - TV soundtrack - Rev Up - Revillos ; Happy Birthday Altered Images

The alternate versions of the Pixies Where is My Mind from Fight Club and Wave of Mutilation from Pump Up the Volume

Also the Beastie track from Pump Up the Volume, which part of the lyrics made it to Paul's Boutique.

Both of the Trainspotting soundtracks, especially Mile End by Pulp.

I have been a big Gipsy Kings fan for quite some time now, but I had never heard of them until I watched the end credits of [b]The Heist[/i] (the 1989 Brosnan/Skerritt HBO film) to see who sang the song ("A Mi Manera") they play over the closing scenes of the film.

I'm sure there are more, but that's what I am coming up with immediately.
