15 Times Movies Chose The Perfect Song To Go With a Scene


Truly, one of my number one things about films are the soundtracks. You know when a melody plays in a film and it literally sends chills down your spine?

Here are some perfect scenes that chose the absolute perfect song to match with it.

15. “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone – Guardians of the Galaxy

I needed to include this one!! It is simple and comes in the midst of a lot of other stunning exemplary melodies, yet this one is the most iconic of the film which is as it should be. It presents the tone of the film, and it’s a particularly extraordinary introduction to Star-Lord.

14. “You’ll Be in My Heart” by Phil Collins – Tarzan

I wasn’t going to include Disney songs for the rundown – in light of the fact that there’s simply so numerous to choose – yet I needed to make a special case for this one (as it’s just sung briefly in the film and is generally a soundtrack piece, I think it counts!). Phil Collins didn’t have to go THIS hard for the Tarzan soundtrack – he in a real sense kept in touch with perhaps the most excellent tunes ever. It has such a stunning message that reaches out past the film, and the scene is lovely.

13. “Toxic” by Britney Spears (covered by Anthony Willis) – Promising Young Woman

THIS IS SUCH A GOOD COVER. It makes the song more creepy and haunting while additionally being hot and wicked. Cassie strolled into that house realizing she probably won’t return out, and that is reflected in this tune and her mentality strolling in. She’s picked this poisonous vengeance mission despite the fact that she realizes it may slaughter her, and she’s completely dedicated and surprisingly nearly happy with that. SO DAMN GOOD.

12. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen (covered by Panic! at the Disco)- Suicide Squad

I genuinely didn’t think anybody was capable for covering this amazing melody, yet Panic! at the Disco proved me wrong. It’s not a critical part in the film, however it’s noteworthy on account of the song, which is a particularly fun fit for the tone the film should have – which was accomplished in this brief moment.

11. “Able” by Pharrell Williams – Hidden Figures

This entire soundtrack is extraordinary, yet I love this moment of how it brings the film full circle, particularly when you think about Pharrell’s “Runnin'” playing when Katharine needed to hurry to discover a bathroom right from the start. This time, somebody is running for her – and when she runs, this is on the grounds that she’s the main individual to clear this mission. It at last feels like she’s being recognized, and it’s an incredible powerful moment – until the door closes in her face. Fortunately, it’s just brief, and we get a pleasant passionate score as she watches the departure.

10. “Jump in the Line (Shake, Senora)” by Harry Belafonte – Beetlejuice

It’s a particularly sporty and fun moment and song, and seeing Winona Ryder dance while levitating will just forever be memorable. Likewise with Matilda, it’s so pleasant to simply see Lydia have fun. Additionally, I strongly prescribe paying attention to the musical’s version of this tune – it’s similarly fun.

9. “Little Bitty Pretty One” by Bobby Day (covered by Thurston Harris)-Matilda

It’s simply so damn fun to see Matilda completely use her powers and enjoy. With her gifted nature, it’s not difficult to fail to remember how youthful she is, yet in scenes like this, we recall her guiltless nature and youth. It’s simply a sweet liberating scene.

Watch The Scene Here:

7. “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones – The Departed

This is another film with an astonishing soundtrack overall, however I gotta go with “Gimme Shelter” for the most critical melody in it, since it opens the film. It’s a particularly incredible prologue to Frank’s character and the time span and social background of the film, both musically and expressively, and it fixes the tone from the beginning.

Watch The Scene Here:

6. “El Tango de Roxanne” by José Feliciano, Ewan McGregor and Jacek Koman – Moulin Rouge!

Each melody in this melodic is astonishing, however this tango variant of the Police’s “Roxanne” must be perhaps the most amazing mashups/fronts ever. It’s so extreme and provocative while likewise feeling dangerous and shaky and passionate. Everything about the scene really meets up, even the break in the tune, where we simply hear an unpleasant violin to go with one of of Satine’s most terrifying moments.

5. “The Hanging Tree” by James Newton Howard (featuring Jennifer Lawrence) – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

The melody and lyrics are super haunting, but there’s still something strangely hopeful about them. The part where Katniss sings is decent, yet it’s the part with the dam breaking that truly solidifies this moment on the spot. The rebels battle without regard for their own lives to break down infrastructure that has been used to exploit them, and it’s just so powerful.

Watch The Scene Here:

4. “Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison – Pretty Woman

I’m a sucker for whenever a melody plays in a film that coordinates with the title, and this example is the same. It simply fits so well with Vivian’s shopping scene – in addition, it plays during one of my #1 film scenes ever, in which Vivian tells of the retail worker for denying assistance to her the day earlier.

3. “Dude (Looks Like a Lady)” by Aerosmith – Mrs. Doubtfire

On the off chance that you’ve never danced around while cleaning and thought about this melody, you didn’t experience childhood during the ’90s. This was such a a great montage, and honestly, I have never looked at vacuuming the same way.

Watch The Scene Here:

2. “Listen” by Beyonce – Dreamgirls

I genuinely think Beyonce has never been exceptional vocally or acting-wise. This scene is SO POWERFUL, and Beyonce puts her soul in the song the scene. It gives Deena a lot more of a perspective and makes her a more complicated yet relatable character. I realize everybody discusses Jennifer Hudson “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” and she totally merits that recognition, however I feel like we fail to remember how completely show-halting Beyonce proved herself to be once again with this number.

Watch The Scene Here:

1. “Blackbird” by Nina Simone (covered by Gugu Mbatha-Raw) – Beyond the Lights

Gugu Mbatha-Raw totally doesn’t get sufficient love – she’s such a star. The second in this film when she sings “Blackbird” – repeating her singing it as a youngster for a talent show in which she set second, baffling her mom – is so amazing. Her acting and singing in the scene are so moving, and the melody likewise coordinates with her sentiments and story so well.
