Best/most appropriate music for a scene in a movie.

My vote goes to the music playing during the three-way showdown (with all those close-ups on the participants' eyes) in Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, which we know better as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

The tune is called Il Triello.

OK, fine.

A close second is Franz Schubert's String Quartet No. 15 in G major, D. 887 (Op. posth. 161) First Movement, allegro molto moderato
from the murder scene in Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Um. I liked the songs that Scarlett Johanson and Bill Murray chose to sing in the Karaoke booth in Lost in Translation.

That classical piece they play in the "Diamonds are forever" commercials.

Okay, okay. Just kidding.

Another one is Jump into the Fire by Harry Nillson, which played during the helicopter scene in Goodfellas.

I had never heard of this picture when Audra posted this. Since then I've been hearing that it's a good flick.

Anyway, I've been trying to track down the name of the Beethoven piano piece that keeps getting played in "La Lectrice" while Miou-Miou is riding her bicyclette from client to client, but I haven't found the title.

I'll keep everyone posted as new information comes in.

I thought Woody Allen made good use of Prokofiev's "Lt. Kije Suite" in Love and Death.

The Ornette Coleman/Jakouka stuff in Naked Lunch was propos.

I can't find the name of the song, but the scene is from Rushmore, where Bill Murray does his cannonball into the pool.

What a great movie.

Nearly Lost You by the Screaming Trees in Singles, when Kyra Sedgewick and Campbell Scott get in the car accident.

Well I don't necessarily think it is the best but it popped into my head quickly. Nearly Lost You is such an amazing song and it occurs at a pivotal point in the movie and fits quite well.

Whew, it's been a grind, but I've finally found the title of that Beethoven piece. It's the Sonata fr Klavier No.21, "Waldstein" Op.53.

How about that Ride of the Valkyries in Apocalypse Now?

The scary violins in the shower scene in Psycho were purty effective...
