Movie Songs you listen to over and over...

I was just watching Casablanca again tonight and it made me think of whether or not any of you other movie lovers ever listen to a song multiple times while watching a movie on DVD...

My all time favorite is from Casablanca when they sing:

La Marseillaise

Some other favorites I have are:

Bridge Over the River Kwai: Colonel Bogey March

The Warriors: In The City

STTNG: First Contact: The score during the opening credits

2001 A Space Odyssey: Blue Danube

Muppet Treasure Island: Sailing For Adventure

U-571: The score during the ending credits

Das Boot: It's a Long Way to Tipperary

I'm curious what everyone else's favorites are...

During the closing credits of the film Quiz Show there is a sad, slow, montage of an audience applauding, and they play an extrmely slow version of what we now know as the song Mack the Knife.

It is a great song, and I have replayed the credits several times when watching.

Slow Turning by John Hiatt from The Rookie but that's only due to the fact that it's on either Encore or Starz every night.

For a couple years, I used to listen to the Schindler's List score while falling asleep.

More recently, Black Hawk Down, American Beauty, and A Road to Perdition have all had songs that I've enjoyed immensely.

When I was in high school we'd listen to the Rocky IV soundtrack (minus two or three songs) before every single cross-country race and track meet. Plus busrides to the same. Literally hundreds of times. Great music to psyche up to!

Nowadays, there are several scores I listen to repeatedly:
The Last of the Mohicans
Edward Scissorhands
Requiem for a Dream
Nightmare before Christmas
Any of Thomas Newman's film scores (Road to Perdition, Meet Joe Black, the Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, etc.)
Heathers
Any of Christopher Franke's Babylon 5 scores

And of I could ever get my hands on an import of the Flowers in the Attic CD, I'd listen to that a ton too!

One of my favorite is I will Find You by Clannad in Last of the Mohicans. I don't know why that song was removed in the DVD.

Because it was way out of place. Since the DVD contains Mann's director's cut, I imagine he was forced to use that song by the producers in order to make the film more "commericial."

Not that any of that makes it a bad song.

I really like The Highlander and Flash Gordon soundtracks and when I was younger, I used to love the Queen song from Iron Eagle. Of course I think my all time fav is the soundtrack to Purple Rain, which seemed to kick off the good soundtrack- awful movie craze.
