ONTD Original: Songs You Hear in a Movie That You’ll Always Remember

image host

When you’re watching a movie and you hear a song you had never heard before and can’t get it out of your head? Or hear a song during a particular or poignant scene and can’t forget the scene or the song. For me most of the movies on the list are movies I saw as a child and they have stuck with my older self. The songs on the list fit the criteria well.
Note: The songs that were chosen are only in the movie and NOT on the movies’ soundtrack.


People Get up and Drive that Funky Soul (1973)

James Brown

Spider Man 3 (2007)





Explanation of Scene: Peter Parker (Tobey McGuire) “grows arrogant with the city starting to embrace him for the first time in his career, an alien symbiote attaches itself to Peter's costume and influences his behavior for the worse”. As he becomes the staff photographer Daily Bugle after gets Eddie Brock fired, here enters the famous dance from Emo Peter Parker.
