Music in Film

Music in Film, the ones that stick.

Now being a musician of some sorts and a lover of music and movies there are certain songs that just fit perfectly and to me they become forever connected.  Now the following songs are not all from movies I think are great or songs that I think are great, but these are the songs that when I hear them a movie scene pops into my head.  I apologize for any ads in some of these clips as it seems unavoidable as sad as that is.

The following songs and scenes are in no particular order but these are the ones most connected for me at this time and ones I figured I would share with our readers. Please feel free to add yours in the comment box, I am sure I have missed many classics.
