Jackson Browne - Late for the Sky (Taxi Driver)
Graham Nash - Simple Man (Reign Over Me)
Can't listen to that song without seeing Pam Grier walking through that airport
Karen O & The Kids - All Is Love (Where The Wild Things Are)
Skip James - Devil Got My Woman (Ghost World)
The Annie Lennox version is in American Beauty, and that led me to Neil Young's original.
That at the Oscar's turned me onto Elliott Smith. Best overhyped glamourous backslapping parade in history...
of of that rly jewish film who's name i forget
From Lucky Number Slevin though.
may be in both, can't remember if it was in Jackie Brown but it was definitely in Pulp Fiction. But yes this is a GREAT song, whenever i put it on everyone's like what is this amazing music.
It's most definitely in Jackie Brown, in the scene where Samuel L. Jackson has just picked Chris Tucker up from his house. Awesome tune, that bassline belongs in porn.
maybe it was bonus track or something. My bad if so.
but maybe Girls by Death in Vegas is the standout.
When in Rome-The promise at the end of Napoleon Dynamite.
Death in Vegas - Girls - Lost In Translation
The Cure - Six Different Ways - Rules of Attraction
Mazzy Star - i think it's Rhymes of an Hour - Stealing Beauty
Bobby Vinton - Blue Velvet - Blue Velvet
made me buy the album.
Elliott Smith - Needle In The Hay (The Royal Tenenbaums)
Low - Half Light (The Mothman Prophecies)
The Shins - New Slang (Garden State, natch)
The Stranglers - Golden Brown (Snatch)
The 5, 6, 7, 8's - in general, both of the songs they performed in Kill Bill Vol. 1

Mountain Goats - Cotton (an episode of Weeds)
Hill Of Beans - Satan Lend Me A Dollar (Also Weeds)
Paul Simon - Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard (Also The Royal Tenenbaums)
Basically ANY SONG EVER from a Tarantino film, or a Wes Anderson film.
Also, I didn't discover it, and it was television, but on an episode of House, Cuddy does a striptease on a bus to There's No Fucking Rules, Dude by !!!.
I LOVE THIS GAME.
All his stuff that was on Broken Flowers.
Thank you Mr Jarmusch!
& the Lebowski one too with Yma Sumac and Kenny Rogers. And Townes Van Zandt
Dylan's 'The Man In Me', and Kenny Rogers'
'Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Is In)' are the ones that spring to mind.
On a more classical note, the 2001 soundtrack gave me Ligeti, and La Moustache led to Philip Glass' violin concerto.
New? Order - Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix) (Blade)
club in a movie to shame. Apparently Snipes chose most of the soundtrack himself. Apparently.
and then many years later hearing "All The World Is Green" in The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, buying Blood Money, and being really glad I did.
all of the mulholland drive soundtrack
But yeah, any song on a Wes Anderson soundtrack, that's for true.
There Is An End, by The Greenhornes with Holly Golightly, off Broken Flowers. And Mulatu Astaque, obvs.
And Les Cactus by Jacques Dutronc, off Youth In Revolt. Bloody awful film, but this softened the blow.
from The Son's Room
got me onto David Holmes. I'm forever grateful
Faith No More: Surprise You're Dead.
Gremlins 2 soundtrack.
From Drugstore Cowboy. Wonderful song.
The Monkees - Porpoise Song (Head)
Fats Domino - Blueberry Hill (12 Monkeys)
Harry Nilsson - Everybody's Talkin (Midnight Cowboy)
Can - I Want More (Morvern Caller - I had plenty of Can before this but not that song)
Flash Cadillac - Suzie Q (Apocalypse Now - Dale Hawkins original)
Natural Born Killers was the one that did it for me in my younger years, the soundtrack alone is like an education in all sorts of amazing stuff.
Got me into Slint, Folk Implosion, Sebadoh and Daniel Johnston.
I've STILL never found a hip hop track I adore as much as 'Mad fright night' either on it by Lo Down, who continually evade my hunt for any more of their back catalogue.
'Spoiled Children soon to fall'
The song that got me into them.
because they're responsible for the two songs used in In Search Of A Midnight Kiss...
Rain Dogs = Fantastic album.
Donovan - Colours (The Rules of Attraction/A Room For Romeo Brass)
Smog - Vessel In Vain (Dead Man's Shoes), then the rest of Smog
Pretty much all of the Lost In Translation soundtrack
Beck - Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)
Roy Orbison - In Dreams (Blue Velvet)
Bobby Vinton - Mister Lonely (Mister Lonely)
Oval (Julien Donkey-boy)
Was, Not Was - Hello Dad I'm In Jail (Pump Up The Volume)
Michael Jackson/Crispin Glover - Ben (Willard)
Darlene Love - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) (Gremlins)
The Penguins - Earth Angel (Back to the Future)
Willie Jackson - Higher (Ghostbusters II)
all Julee Cruise (Twin Peaks)
Cyndi Lauper - Good Enough (The Goonies)
Dire Straits - Romeo & Juliet (Empire Records)
Rex Manning - Say No More Mon Amour (lips are for kissing baby je t'adore)
and also the cover of (666) The Number of The Beast by Djali Zwan in the spun sound track is amazing.
in Killer of Sheep
Jackson C Frank - Milk and Honey in the Brown Bunny.
Townes van Zandt - Dead Flowers
just a great song. It ends the film perfectly too.
I must have been about 9 (too young, I know) when I first saw Leon and, as such, when I heard that song. Been utterly in love with both since.
28 Days Later lead to me tracking down other Godspeed You! Black Emperor stuff, but I didn't give GY! the listening time they deserved until a few years later.
Not sure I really get what I saw in Donnie Darko any more, but I still love the 'Head Over Heels' scene. That can't be the first time I heard Tears for Fears though ...
