    Perfect Day in Trainspotting. Lot's of good music on that soundtrack, but that song is always connected to the movie in my mind.

    Sopranos. Not a movie, but..
    I used to really like the song Oh Girl by the Chi-Lites, but ever since I saw Tony Soprano whup another man with his belt to that song I can never listen to it again. I have to change the radio station whenever I hear it.



    On the other hand...

    Tequilla from PeeWee's big Adventure.



    Bohemian Rhapsody from 'Wayne's World

    For many years the song Tequila gave me visions of summer nights and hot rods for some reason. But ever since I saw Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Tequila will forever be the scene of The Big Shoe Dance.

    Layla and Goodfellas.
    Kind of ruined the song for me.

    I associate Freebird with Coming Home with Jon Voight or the scene in Forest Gump.

    as soon as I read the title of the post "Stuck in the Middle with You" popped into my mind, it's hard to listen to ever since that scene. Seems like Tarantino has always done an excellent job pairing music with movies.

    Wes Anderson has also done a great job now that I think of it. It's not his best known movie but the soundtrack from Rushmore is filled with classic rock songs that pefectly fit the scenes.

    Funny, that tune always makes me think "The Huntley-Brinkley Report is a production of NBC News, which is solely responsible for its content. This is the National Broadcasting Company."

    btw, CT, or Non-Reg?

    I believe this song is literally imprinted in my DNA.
