Cameron Crowe wrote a piece for the Los Angeles Times in which he, in addition to writing about his own movies, also writes about those perfect moments when music and film come together. Of course, he mentions his movie Say Anything, in which John Cusack holds his boombox over his head while Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" plays for the benefit of Ione Skye. The thing is, the Peter Gabriel song was dubbed in later, and the song actually coming out of the boombox was "Bonin' in the Boneyard" by Fishbone. Anyway, since we all know our opinions are more important than Cameron Crowe's, I'm asking ya'll to come up with some of your favorite music moments in movies.

A personal fave of mine is "Stuck in the Middle with You" by Stealers Wheel, as featured in Reservoir Dogs. A snappy, toe-tappin' ditty plays while Mr. Blonde tortures a rookie cop, culminating with the cop's ear being lopped off with a straight razor. The juxtaposition is brilliant, and made what would have been a horrific scene even more surreal and unsettling.
