This summer I've been digging movies more than ever before. If there is one thing I can grab onto in a film, take it for what its worth, appreciate it, connect with it, then it's a movie worth watching in my opinion. I was thinking about the scenes in movies that really stick with me. I found that ususally the scenes that stick are because of the songs that play. They could be songs you're already pretty familiar with but hearing them in a film makes this solid connection in your brain forever between the scene and the song. I've listed the film/song combinations that have really cemented themselves in my mind.
1. Romeo & Juliet directed by Baz Luhrmann
Lovefool by The Cardigans
2. The Royal Tenenbaums directed by Wes Anderson
Me and Julio by Paul Simon
3. Forrest Gump directed by Robert Zemeckis
Stop Children What's That Sound by Buffalo Springfield
4. Ferris Bueller's Day Off directed by John Hughes
Twist and Shout by The Beatles
5. The Sandlot directed by David M. Evans
America the Beautiful by Ray Charles
6. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 directed by David Yates
O Children by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
7. Lost In Translation directed by Sofia Coppola
Just Like Honey by The Jesus and Mary Chain
Listening to these songs strikes such a strong cord in my heart. If you've seen these films, I'm sure you understand the feeling and if not I'm sure there are songs that you connect to certain scenes of your favorite films. Also, O Children in Deathly Hallows is untouchable. Cheers!
