Songs you associate with films

I jus heard All Star by Smash Mouth on the radio and it got me thinking whether anyone could hear it without thinking of Shrek. What are the songs that you always associate with particular films? NB I'm not talking about stuff from musicals or specially commissioned songs like you might get in a James Bond or the like, but existing songs that have been used. Mine are:
- Smash Mouth - All Star - Shrek
- Lavern Baker - Soul On Fire - Angel Heart
- Silicon Teens - Red River Rock - Planes, Trains...
- Iggy Pop - Lust For Life - Trainspotting
- Underworld- Born Slippy - Trainspotting

  • Not a film ,  but Oasis's Don't Look Back In Anger always reminds me of the epic TV Series Our Friends In The North which has just been repeated on BBC 4 and it's ending with future James Bond Daniel Craig striding across the Tyne Bridge.
  • The End (The Doors) - Apocalypse Now 
  • Let It Snow - Frank S - Die Hard 2

    (which makes it a Xmas Film!!!)
  • Axel F - Harold Faltemeyer
    Beverley Hills Cop
    (Axel Foley being the lead character!)

    Because of you- Dexys Midnight Runners- Brushstrokes 
  • Raindrops keep falling on my head… Butch cassidy and the sundance kid
    Wasn't that written for the film?
  • As Time Goes By - Casablanca

  • Killing Moon - Echo and the Bunnymen - Donnie Darko
  • Think by Aretha Franklin - Blues Brothers
    Great scene 
  • Raindrops keep falling on my head… Butch cassidy and the sundance kid
    I was going to say that!

    So I’ll go for a more modern film. Jojo Rabbit ends with the German version of David Bowie’s Heroes (Helden). Quite moving. 
  • Freebird - Lynyrd Skynrd - now inextricably linked to the first Kingsman film.
  • Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen, Wayne’s World
  • In Dreams, Roy Orbison in Blue Velvet 
  • Red Red Robin - Apocalypse Now
  • Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen, Wayne’s World
    Over-the-top song meets 'meh' film, the result is cinema gold.
