List: best movie song moments part 4

Here’s part one, part two, and part 3.

The Ramones, “Bonzo Goes to Bitburg” from School of Rock
I LOVE that they used this Ramones song, because it is so well done and not typical of the Ramones. And what better song to use of a montage of Jack Black teaching kids the basics of “real” Rock n Roll.

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mitch and Tich “Hold Tight” from Quentin Taratino’s Death Proof

The most amazing sequence of the movie Jungle Julie requests the song on the radio and says the band’s name about a thousand times. They all rock out and then Stuntman Mike collides with them and it is the most.gruesome.carc.rash.on.film.ever. [video]

Michael Jackson, “The Way You Make Me Feel” from Center Stage
Omg. Here we go, the epitome of ballet schools, supposed to be at the forefront of dance, and the rogue choreographer does this really dumb act that mimics the drama going on among the character. There are motorcycles driven onstage. And simulated sex with a teenager. And 2 second outfit changes. If you have seen this movie, you know the end sequence OWNS. [video]

Huey Lewis and the News, “Hip to Be Square” from American Psycho
Patrick Batemen explains the subtle and intricate social messages of the song while bludgeoning Jared Leto with an axe. Beautiful. The movie did no justice to the book, but this scene came close. [video]

Venus in Furs, “Tumbling Down” from Velvet Goldmine
The whole movie is full of great moments and music, but this video is fantastic and symbolizes the downfall of all the character. Oh, and Ewan McGregor and Christian Bale bask in the afterglow of the sex they just had. Yeeeee! [video]
