Songs you can’t hear without thinking about a film

When it comes to singing along, it’s not always the movie-originals that have us acting like Celine Dion and Beyonce had a child. Sometimes, a film uses a song so well that we’re changed forever, and whenever we hear it we just remember that one scene some higher being came up with. There’s a million of these, but here’s our top 11, in no particular order:

Step Up

step up

Which song?

Why?

Which dance in the Step Up franchise is more iconic than Moose dancing up and down stairs to his ringtone? WE’LL WAIT.

Disclaimer: Don’t try his sweet moves at home. You will definitely break something, and we’re not talking about furniture.

Drive

drive

Which Song?

Why?

Whenever there’s a conversation about soundtrack Drive is always mentioned. Because it’s incredible. Everyone knows the tune, everyone knows the film, and if you don’t –

Shrek

Shrek_and_Fiona

Which Song?

Why?

What do you MEAN why? Because she was look pretty dumb? Because she had her finger and her thumb? In the shape of an L on her forehead? Because the years keep comin’ and they don’t stop comin’ and they don’t stop comin’ and they don’t stop comin’ and they don’t stop comin’? Because you hit the ground runnin’? Because, hey now, you’re an all star?

Matilda

matilda

Which Song?

Why?

Doo-doo-do-do ON MY WAY. Just the first few beats scream Matilda and we wouldn’t have it any other way. This funky piece of music will get you jigging up and down and throwing pancakes in the air which you 100% believe will stay up there if you just have some FAITH.

Fight Club

fc

Which song?

Why?

OPEN: You. Watching Fight Club. The tub of ice cream next to you has melted. You can’t remember what day it is. You don’t know who you are as a person. You trust nobody. Not even your own pet. He just blew his own face open and is still alive. Nothing makes sense. You’re confused. You’re looking up Fight Club theories on your phone.

This song starts playing.

And, suddenly, it’s okay to be a little cray.

Hardcore Henry

Screen Shot 2017-12-01 at 13.23.46

Which song?

Why?

A first-person perspective of a manbot (man-robot) injecting himself with some dodgy shit and suddenly getting the power of 20 Spartans and absolutely wrecking everyone in his way? Don’t stop us now. Never has a scene been so motivational. Children were born to it. Peace was created to it. Everyone was fed to it. The world was at harmony, all because of Hardcore Henry.

Watchmen

giphy

Which Song?

Why?

OOOOOOOOH THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’ and Watchmen will forever be just one of those films that when you watch it you feel it in your very soul. Watchmen is life-changing, mind-altering, heartache-inducing.

Beetlejuice

Which song?

Why?

DAAAAAY-O. Daylight come and we wanna watch Beetlejuice for the 3967th time. One of the most hilarious moments in cinematic history? Yeah, prolly. Watching a bunch of adults dance like crazy people against their will is always nice. WE SAY DAY-O.

Reservoir Dogs

ReservoirDogs

Which song?

Why?

When released in cinemas people would go and see it over and over just for this one scene. Quentin knows how to make you feel dodgy and he knew it from the very beginning. It made history. The cute little pop song in a mega disgusting moment? It gave everyone real twisted thoughts that we haven’t been able to forget.

Baby Driver

tumblr_otn8c2ngf11wtlyego1_500

Which song?

Um… literally anything with the word Baby in it, maybe? But also

Why?

There are very few things which are as heartbreaking and traumatic as seeing sweet little Ansel Elgort get arrested, but you just have to remind yourself that it’s only a movie and be sure to have tissues nearby. WE’RE NOT CRYING. WE’RE JUST SWEATING FROM OUR EYES. WE’LL PROTECT YOU, ANSEL.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

ferris-fest-30th-anniversary-1

Which song?

But also

Why?

Ooooooh yeaaaaah. Every scene in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is too epic for it’s own good, tbh. But what’s super incredible is when Ferris hijacks a float and everyone is 100% okay with it because he’s just THAT charismatic. #Goals
