Hear the music, remember the movie

Recommended Posts

At the imdb.com "Music" message board, the question was: "What song reminds you of what movie?"

Here's an obvious one: Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" lands you on the deck of "Titanic" screaming something about "I'm king of the world!" :laughing:

Tiny Dancer - Almost Famous

This is so funny, Peaches. That song reminds me of Phoebe on "Friends" singing "Hold me closer, Tony Danza..." :grin:

The only one that really sticks in my mind as far as movies go is:

"I'm Alright" ~ Caddyshack. I can't hear that song without seeing that little gopher dancing.
