Songs and movie scenes


I’m very excited about having an 8:30 res at Dorsia this evening; and agonizing about what to order has somehow reminded me that several songs are now permanently intertwined in my mind with the scenes in which they’re used in various films. These include:

(1) Hip To Be Square (American Psycho)

(2) Suzy Q (Apocalypse Now)

(3) American Girl (Silence of the Lambs)

(4) Layla (Goodfellas)

(5) April Come She Will (The Graduate)

(6) Basketball Jones (Being There)

. . . comments remind me of a huge personal omission, (7) Let’s Stay Together, Pulp Fiction

What songs are inextricably embedded in celluloid for you? Is this a good or a bad thing? (For me it’s good, because it only seems to happen with songs in movies I really like).
