Can you name the movies these clips are from?

Listen to this sound clip. There's a total of 20 song/score/music clips in it. Can you all guess where they are all from?

At least two songs are used in different movies, so there may be multiple right answers. You don't need to name the song or artists, just the movie.

If you guys can guess them all you get the priceless gift of Internet Respect™ which is the world's most valuable currency.

Most are American movies but there's a very strong presence of foreign movies. None of the movies are obscure --- they've all been discussed here in one form or another. Also, almost all of the movies are movies I own, so feel free to browse my dvdaf collection for hints.

Let the guessing begin...


Correctly Guessed:

"You Only Live Twice" by Nancy Sinatra, from You Only Live Twice
"a Quai" by Yann Tiersen, from Amelie
"Across 110th Street" by Bobby Womack, from Across 110th Street (used most famously in the opening sequence of Jackie Brown)
...
"Ghost Dog Theme (with dogs and EFX)" by RZA, from Ghost Dog
"At Emperor's Palace" by Tan Dun featuring the China Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus, Itzhak Perlman, and the KODO Drummers, from Hero
"Snowflake Music" by Mark Mothersbaugh, from Bottle Rocket (guessed as Rushmore, where it was reused)
"Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" by Tan Dun and Yo-Yo Ma, from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
"Musica Ricercata II" by Gyögy Ligeti, from Eyes Wide Shut
...
...
"Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta" by the Geto Boys, from Office Space
"Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" by Urge Overkill, from Pulp Fiction
"Suspiria" by Goblin, from Suspiria
...
"Meltdown" (part of the Winter Oveture) by Clint Mansell, from Requiem for a Dream
"Dressed to Kill" by Yeong-Wook Jo, from Oldboy
"Kite Flyin'" by Mark Mothersbaugh from Rushmore
...

6 left.

I heard Eyes Wide Shut (the piano from Ligeti) and Pulp Fiction ("Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon"). The one around the 3:00 mark is killing me-I know it from somewhere.

That Philip Glass piece is going to piss me off, I just know it. Also, it might be easier to know what is correctly guessed by editing your first post, so people don't have to go through the thread to find the latest update.

Then I am confused. And Philip Glass needs to sue someone.
