Best and Worst Song Choices for Movies

By Dustin Rowles | Comment Diversions | June 17, 2009 |


I've got a couple of related diversion requests lately, so I think I'll run them both in this evening's diversion. Colin asks what the best use of a song moment is in a movie: He offers "Relax" from Zoolander and ''Time Is On My Side" from Fallen.

Conversely, Sarah asks what are some notably inappropriate song choices for movie scene, and offers one of the best examples in recent memory: Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" in Watchmen.

Either/or might have the makings for a very good Seriously Random List or even a Guide, so let's see what you got. Me: I offer only that Cat Stevens' songs are somehow always perfect for whatever movie they are in.
