Sticking to diegetic sound:

The Madison in Band of Outsiders is my favorite.

Moon River in Breakfast at Tiffany's:


Crying in Mulholland Drive and Candy Colored Clown in Blue Velvet

The end of The Conversation

I really like the zither fight in Kung Fu Hustle

I don't quite know what's going on here but I went looking for the clip and this was there;




Which leads to this;


Sharing music;


Ive posted what I thought was the greatest opening sequence in a movie; Bullitt in the Derby. Then there's the Harmonica sequence in OUATITWest and then there's this, which works better with the fugue beforehand and turned up really loud,


It sets the film out as an opera which makes the silences even more deafening.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (opening credits) is a wonderful dolphin singing/danging thing.

There are so many that I won't even pretend these are necessarily the top 5 as of now, but I think they're all perfect. I went with a couple from the sixties and a few from modern times. Really though, I could go on and on with this topic. Come to think of it, I"ll be doing just that in my own brain as I pick the significant other up from work.

The Social Network- Mark Zuckerberg rejected and bitterly walking home to make history ("Hand Covers Bruise")
The Royal Tenenbaums- Margot's file ("Judy Is A Punk")
Before Sunset- "A Walts For A Night"
Killer of Sheep- Slow dancing in the bedroom ("This Bitter Earth")
Cria Cuervos- The three little girls dance in their room ("Porque Te Vas")

"I'm not sure."
"A mensch - a human being!"
