Battle Without Honor or Humanity from Kill Bill is the first thing that comes to mind for me.

I thought Tears For Fears 'Head Over Heels' worked really well in Donnie Darko (as did all of the music in that film).

I don't know about favorite, but one of the best needle drops last year was Steve Zissou's pirate revenge sequence set to the Stooges' "Search and Destroy."

Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world it's turning inside out
I'm floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time.....

Some good ones mentioned so far... one of my favorites and most memorable is "The Eye of the Tiger" from Rocky III. As a kid that always got me pumped up.

I'll second "Head Over Heels" from Donnie Darko and add Malcolm McLaren's (sp?) "About Her" in Kill Bill Vol. 2.


P.S. I want to see Garden State now just knowing Coldplay's Don't Panic is in it.

This is coming from someone who used to sing metal. I have always loved "To Sir With Love" by Lulu.

"House of the Rising Sun" by the Animals at the end of Casino, I don't think they could have picked a better song.
