Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas". In particular, the opening song and the movie that goes with the lyrics.

This is Halloween Lyrics

[sHADOW]

Boys and girls of every age

Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

[sIAMESE SHADOW]

Come with us and you will see

This, our town of Halloween

[PUMPKIN PATCH CHORUS]

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

[GHOSTS]

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene

Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright

It's our town, everybody scream

In this town of Halloween

[CREATURE UNDER THE BED]

I am the one hiding under your bed

Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

[MAN UNDER THE STAIRS]

I am the one hiding under yours stairs

Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair!

[CORPSE CHORUS]

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

[VAMPIRES]

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

[MAYOR]

In this town, don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

[CORPSE CHORUS]

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can!

Something's waiting now to pounce, and how you'll...

[HARLEQUIN DEMON, WEREWOLF & MELTING MAN]

Scream!

This is Halloween

Red 'n' black, slimy green

[WEREWOLF]

Aren't you scared?

[WITCHES]

Well, that's just fine!

Say it once, say it twice

Take a chance and roll the dice

Ride with the moon in the dead of night

[HANGING TREE]

Everybody scream, everbody scream!

In our town of Halloween!

[CLOWN]

I am the clown with the tear-away face.......

Here in a flash and gone without a trace!

[sECOND GHOUL]

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I am the wind blowing through your hair........

[OOGIE BOOGIE SHADOW]

I am the shadow on the moon at night........

Filling your dreams to the brim with fright!

[CORPSE CHORUS]

This is Halloween!, this is Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

Halloween! Halloween!

[CHILD CORPSE TRIO]

Tender lumplings everywhere,

Life's no fun without a good scare!

[PARENT CORPSES]

That's our job, but we're not mean

In our town of Halloween

[CORPSE CHORUS]

In this town

[MAYOR]

Don't we love it now?

Ev'rybody's waiting for the next surprise!

[CORPSE CHORUS]

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back!

And scream, like a banshee!

Make you jump out of your skin!

This is Halloween, everybody scream!

Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy?

Our man Jack, is King of the Pumpkin Patch

Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King (now)

[EVERYONE]

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

[CORPSE CHILD TRIO]

In this town, we call home.......

Everyone hail to the pumpkin song!

[EVERYONE]

La la la la-la, la la la la-la Halloween! Halloween!

Pretty much the same as everyone else's...

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Blues Brothers

Spinal Tap

School of Rock

High Fidelity

And since someone posted about not discussing a lot of rap on this site, I would like to throw in Krush Groove...Run DMC, LL Cool J, Kurtis Blow, the Fat Boys. Fresh, yo!

But Moulin Rouge? I believe it was Bart Simpson who asked the immortal question: "Is it possible for something to suck and blow at the same time?"

Didn't see American Graffiti listed in the thread. If you are a fan of 50's and very early 60's music, there are plenty of standards on the soundtrack. I highly recommend it.

Also, as a teen I couldn't get enough of the movie version of Tommy by The Who.

Yup, American Graffiti is an excellent choice! Columbia House had the two disc soundtrack on clearance for $3 one time. My eyes nearly popped out of my head, I couldnt believe it. Unfortunately, due to the usual SNAFU I couldnt order it online. ::

The movie I am about to suggest is obviously NOT an entry to the 'best of' category, but I just want to know how many people remember it. The movie is, "Cotton Candy".

It was released in 1978 (I was ten years old at the time). Very odd stuff I am finding out about this movie as we speak... It was directed by Ron Howard! You know the guy from "Happy Days". Ron's brother, Clint Howard, played the lead in their group.

Wow, what a flashback! Has anyone else seen this movie?

I only watched it and remember it because the high school where it was filmed was where I went to school several years later, Lake Highlands, Dallas. The mall where they had the 'battle of the bands' was a Dallas mall called Town East. In one of the scenes you can even see the fences and green windscreens of the tennis courts where I used to play. The middle name of Ron Howard's first son is actually Dallas because he was concieved during the filming. "Night Shift" was comic genius, this movie was made for TV. I liked "ED TV" but not the aftermath of reality shows that followed. Other notables from Lake Highlands include:

Merton Hanks -- Strong safety of the evil SF 49's in the mid nineties

Morgan Fairchild -- B-movie actress and spokesperson for Old Navy

Matt Stover -- Placekicker for the Baltimore Ravens

Justin Leonard -- Pro golfer and former British Open champion

Cindy Scott -- Frequent Songfacts poster ::

I'm surprised nobody mentioned The Doors. Maybe it dont portray the real Jim, but it's still an awesome movie. Some highlights are:

The desert trip

When Jim gets on top of the car and spaces out

The Not To Touch The Earth concert part

The ending

This is Spinal Tap ranks second here.
