The discussion about The Lorelei and Tomorrow Belongs to Me made me realize that movies often do a great job of giving depth and meaning to music. I would be curious about what music scenes left a lasting impression on you. A YouTube or other video link would be great.

I volunteer this scene as one of the most effective and emotional in any film.
From Casablanca.

The Legend of 1900-- whole film. Long parts of short. The Love theme that opens the pawn shop storyline and is played in different ways at different points, esp. The piano of it-- oh my.

Other short Morricone pieces are very evocative also and I will be using them (and other soundtrack stuff) from other films in a new social-change/multicutural competence curriculum. YoYo Ma doing an (added) cello part within Morricone music from movies-- oh my!

Gran Torino, por ejemplo.

The entire soundtrack to the film "Fistful of Dollars" -- which, back in the late '60s I found on LP and made me wish (in those pre-videotape days) to have the film available to watch any time I wanted.

The procession (with concertina) in the beginning of Roman Polanski's "Tess".

The entire film "Diva".

Shantying ("Blood Red Roses" and others sung by Bert Lloyd) while leaving port in the 1956 "Moby-Dick".

re Casablanca clip above - did you notice it is followed on U-tube by the Nazi National Anthem, complete with swastika-flag logo? Bring up any military marches on U-tube, for that matter, & the right-hand Related·Videos column will be full of Swastikas and Waffen s.s. double lightnings. The vids will mostly show Der Führer & his acolytes - Himmler, Goebbels... - Sieg·Heiling their acknowledgments to the march-past. & that will lead to further neo-Nazi propaganda vids...

How many other people have noticed this?

Films that gained much from great scoring for me includes the 1960's Tom Jones and more recently October Sky & The Englishman That went up a Hill and Came Down a Mountain.

To be honest - the only parts of Titanic that I enjoyed were the scenes below deck with the music & dancing... the rest of the film really torked me off.

But don't forget the great music used in the old Looney Tunes cartoons.

There are so many great moments .I love the interaction between Collin Firth and Jennifer Ellie in the A&E version of Pride & Prejudice . The band is just amazing playing Mr Beverage's Maggot . I could listen to that band for a very very long time !! The whole sound track to the Long Riders changed my life . The woman on the porch in The Song Catcher with fiddle took my breath away . Jorde Savalle in the French movie about a Viola De Gamba player is incredible .Sonny Terry playing with Ry Cooder while the actors are walking down southern dirt roads on Crossroads was spectacular . The one where Harpo find a harp in the attic was unforgettable ..

The Qatsi Trilogy (Philip Glass) is mesmerising to me, although I can't watch them back to back...too much minimalism can't be good for you.
Watching Shrek with my granddaughter, Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah jumped out and smacked me in the head.
The whole soundtrack for the A&E Nero Wolfe series was superb.
Ken Burns' National Parks series soundtrack was great!

Well, that takes care of the top of my ead for now.

Re the title - see following from Wikipedia:-

"Dueling Banjos" was arranged and performed for the movie by Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell and was included on the soundtrack album
The song had been composed in 1955 by Arthur Smith as a banjo instrumental he called "Feudin' Banjos". Smith recorded it, playing a four-string plectrum banjo and accompanied by five-string bluegrass banjo player Don Reno.
When he was not acknowledged as the composer by the filmmakers, Smith sued. He eventually won, receiving songwriting credit as well as royalties. Two young musicians, Ron Brentano and Mike Russo, had originally been signed to play their adaptation for the movie, but instead it was performed by the others.

So many I don't know where to start. But a few quick mentions:

1. There's a little-known -- probably few watched it -- called "A Twist Of Fate". What it was was a retelling of Silas Marner with Steve Martin in the starring role. Anyway, there's a late night scene wherein Martin is sitting in his quiet house and he's quietly clawhammering out "The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond" on his banjo. It's a wonderful scene in a movie more people should have seen.

2. From the more recent "Once" -- the initial songwriter meets songwriter scene at the music store piano seen here. Movie meets music just doesn't get any better that this.

3. This scene was one of the most joyful bits of movie I've ever seen. It was corny, funny, and utterly winsome.

I greatly recommend two different, and contrasting, creative versions of The Beggar's Opera ? Peter Brook's 1953 film, much reworked from original by Christopher Fry & Dennis Cannan, with Laurence Olivier Dorothy Tutin et distinguished al; & Jonathan Miller's BBCtv version from 1983 with Roger Daltry + ditto; mainly faithful to Gay's original but with many creative touches: you could hardly have two more contrasted Macheaths could you?, but both work superbly. I have videos of both & find it peculiarly instructive and stimulating to play them back to back ~ esp with regard to the different approaches to the music {the Brook arranged by Bliss}, as well as the characterisations.

As a kid I always used to ask my parents what the music was in the cartoons, because if you think about it, cartoons had a lot of great music. And when I was growing up I remember thinking I'd love to be the one to get to choose music for them. Lucky those who got to do it when cartoons like those were still being produced.

The Cat Concerto (1946 Oscar winning short subject- Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2).

Daffy and Porky trying to sleep with cats singing opera on the fence. Bugs Bunny on stage. The two crows, who hopped around to Fingal's Cave, and many more. I loved it!

And the entire (musical) soundtrack to "A Man for All Seasons" -- I bought the double LP soundtrack and was disappointed (sort of) to find it was the entire DIALOG of the film, but none of the music.

Almost Famous told the story of a country rock band being torn apart by jealousies and drug and drinking problems. After a particularly nasty episode where the lead singer, on LSD, dives into a pool from the garage roof, the ability of music to heal is shown in this scene.

I keep thinking of more films... Disney made great use of music and the original Fantasia is a classic.

Amadeus also bursts with grand music.

John Williams is a master of scoring films to great effect... who can listen to the shark's theme in Jaws without a shudder?

Jerry Silverberg did a great job scoring The Thirteenth Warrior, a great little film that did poorly at the box office.

Here's how to post a video from YouTube (in case anyone wants to and doesn't know how).
1)Find your video on www.youtube.com
2)Right click the web address in the narrow window at the top of the page. On this page it reads http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=127320&messages=40#2839362 . This will highlight the address and give you a drop down bar with options.
3) Select "Copy" as your option by left clicking it.
4)Navigate back to Mudcat and choose your thread and in the "reply to thread" box (the one you write your comments in), right click where you want to enter the copied address.
5)Select "paste" as your option

That's it. Should you want to go a step further and convert the address to a "blue clicky" link,just left click "Make a link ("blue clicky")" just below the Reply to thread box and on the right side.
A new window will pop up. In the "Link URL" slot, right click and paste your copied address. In the "Link Text" slot below it, you can name the link, like "Click" or "Click Here" or "Out of Africa" or whatever you want. Then left click on "Create Link".
The link code will appear, looking something like a web address. Left click just to the left of this link code, and holding the left button down, drag the highlight to the end of the link code. Now right click that and again select "copy" option. Now when you right click and paste into the Reply to Thread box, the code will appear. If you click "preview" you'll see your blue clicky the way it will look when you post. If it looks good, click "Submit Message".

Don't know if anyone doesn't know those procedures, but if you don't, maybe that helps.

Just first thoughts off the top of my head....one of my early memories is the great music in The Jungle Book, especially this one which still stands up as a classic..
I Wanna Be Like You

..and in terms of directly influencing me personally, a more recent one is the scene in Cold Mountain (not the greatest film but with some great music) where they are singing Sacred Harp in the church, as this led me to this fantastic form of singing which is a big part of my life five years later.
Sacred Harp singing in Cold Mountain

And O Brother, of course, which fostered my interest in bluegrass and old-timey music in general and the banjo in particular - especially as I'd been an AKUS fan for a few years already, so enjoyed the fact that the marvellous Dan Tyminski provided the voice for George Clooney. But I think this bluesy song from Chris Thomas King was particularly affecting in the film.

Any Mel Brooks film. Too often overlooked, but part of the comic genius in Mel is in his own compositions (too many to list, but "Springtime for Hitler" and "The Inquisition" come immediately to mind) along with the use of other music in odd situations (opening scene in Blazing Saddles).

And I too loved every Marx Brothers film, not just for the humor, but for Harpo and Chico.

Topcat, I was going to mention I wanna be like You from Jungle Book as well, with the great singing of Louie Prima.

Another scene from Cold Mountain with a powerful music moment is the one in which Frederic Forrest and his henchmen have caught up to Renee Zellweger's Dad and his pal, and are preparing to shoot them for desertion. Forrest experiences a moment of..regret? Or just common humanity...as the song reaches the end.

I tend to remember movies based on the impression that the music leaves me with. Sometimes it's a single song or scene background; sometimes it's the main theme.

Here are three that I find truly memorable and that added greatly to the video experience:

The climactic chase scene in Mad Max: The Road Warrior

The simple but dread-inducing theme to "Halloween"

"Ben's Theme", my favorite passage from the "National Treasure" soundtrack

And these are just a "tip of the iceberg" sampling of musical passages that are favorites.

Hard to say, but one of my favorites is from 1951, the lavish, spectacular movie version of Jacques Offenbach's opera, The Tales of Hoffmann. Ballerina Moira Shearer and (I believe) Leonide Massine in the Dragonfly ballet sequence. I don't think the ballet sequence is in the opera, but since they had Moira Shearer in the cast, they undoubtedly wanted to make full use of her talents as a dancer.

The Dragonfly

When I was in my early teens and on into my early twenties, there were a lot of really good musically based movies coming out. The 1943 Phantom of the Opera with Claude Rains as the phantom, and Nelson Eddy, proving that he had a rich baritone voice that was perfectly capable of opera as well as musical comedy; Song of Scheherazade, a somewhat apocryphal bio-pic about Rimsky-Korsakov when he was a cadet in the Russian navy making a stop in Morocco with all of the music derived from Rimsky-Korsakov's compositions; Tonight, We Sing, a bio-pic about impresario Sol Hurok, which had everybody in it, such as Ezio Pinza as Russian basso Feodor Chaliapin. And several others. A musical version of The Desert Song, A Song to Remember with Cornel Wilde as Chopin. . . .

Lots of musical movies, and I'm sure soaking this stuff up at the Saturday matinee while waiting for the thirteen chapter serial had a lot to do with my later appreciation of all kinds of music.

Zorba the Greek is one of the great characters in literature or film. At the end of the movie, Zorba's plan to make a fortune with Alan Bates by constructing a log ramp from the mountain to the ocean reaches a catastrophic end when the weight and speed of the logs rip the structure to pieces, terrifying a gathered crowd from the village. Zorba's grief is not so much for himself, nor for the failure, but because of his friend's anguish over the lost effort and money. Zorba's Dancewith Bates is a celebration of the joy of life, the comedy that can be found even in the darkest of situations. It is one of the most memorable endings found in any film.

I love that scene in Amadeus where Mozart (Tom Hulse) arrives at court and Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) presents him with a composition that he wrote in Mozart's honor. Mozart sits down at the keyboard to play it, gets a few measures into it, then repeats a short passage a couple of times and says, "Hmm! That doesn't quite work, does it? How about doing it this way?" Then he makes a few small changes and it sounds much better.

Salieri (who has to agree that Mozart is right) stands there with a look on his face that says, "I would very much like to strangle that wise-ass little bastard!"

The Marseillaise from Casablanca, which someone mentioned, is among the very best. For Broadway musical adaptations, I don't think it can get much better than the opening scene from The Sound of Music. The showstopper treatment of "Do-Re-Mi" is also very memorable.

I've always liked this scene in Rio Grande (1950) where the Sons of the Pioneers serenade Maureen O'Hara with "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen."

And speaking of the Sons of the Pioneers...I'm a big fan of theirs and could name too many of their numbers, but one really striking one is in Texas Stagecoach (1940). The song ("Hill Country") is built off a road-building scene where the sounds of construction set the rythm for the first unaccompanied bars of the song, and the filming techniques are unusual for a B-Western.

John Ford's last film was The Dead, which describes a dinner party in Ireland during a snow storm in the 19th century. The man in this scene is married to a woman whose remoteness is a mystery to him. In a previous scene, she has told of a a young man she loved in her youth who took ill and died. He realizes that this youth was the love of her life, and she has never recovered from his death. The scene with a famous tenor who is a guest, occurs as they prepare to leave the party. It's a very fine film, and anyone who has not seen it is missing a true classic.

What about - the theme that haunts A Matter of Life and Death, the 1946 Powell and Pressburger movie in which David Niven has cheated death and then met a girl - he feels burning love for the girl and also extreme survivor guilt (the film is set over the very last days of the European bit of WW2), manifesting in a hallucinogenic brain problem complete with virtual trial by an afterlife that's still after him. One example on YouTube here.

If you're interested in the accuracy of the neurology background to the film, check out Diane Friedman's A Matter of Life and Death: The Brain Revealed by the Mind of Michael Powell.

The beleaguered garrison in "Zulu" responding to the Zulu chant is a really brilliant way both of including something distinctive of each group (even if "Men of Harlech" is in translation) and of racking up the tension/power in the final confrontation.

Just read back thru thread. Someone above uses adjective 'goofy' in some context: which reminds me to observe that the musical tracks to any Disney, WB, Fleischer [e.g. Betty Boop], MGM, &c, cartoons are always so perfectly geared to the content as to form a perfect gestalt.

I remember long years ago [must be 65 years] reading the observation in a book called "This Thing Called Ballet" by George Borodin [ballet was an early-teen thing of mine], something to the effect that choreographers and composers could learn from the perfect match of Disney's musical scores to his content: "When you see a fish open its mouth you simultaneously hear a bit of music so perfectly judged that, if you stop to think about it, you wonder if, seeing the fish you would have heard the music in your head, or hearing the music you would have visualised the fish." [From memory; but, as I say, to that effect.]

Worth an visit for sheer musical pleasure; the soundtracks of Pasolini's 'Canterbury Tales' and 'The Arabian Nights' and Bill Bryden's St Kilda film 'Ill Fares The Land' (selected by John Tams).
Again, the whole soundtrack of 'Songcatcher', even the Janet McTeer 'singing' of Barbara Allen; not the style in which I would normally want to listen to it, but works beautifully in context.
For the opposite effect, the beer garden scene in Cabaret, where a group of Hitler Youth sings 'The Future Belongs To Me' with increasing intensity still makes my skin crawl; hardly enjoyable, but certainly memorable.

It was made in 1966 and starred Oliver Reed and Rita Tushingham.

It's set in North America (Alaska or Canada, I'm not sure) and is about a young woman with no speech sold to a brutal trapper. He buys her from her aunt and takes her away into the forest to live in a log cabin. They develop a love for each other, but he gets caught in an animal trap and she has to chop his leg off with an axe as he develops gangrene. Later she escapes, but on the point of marriage to a respectable man, she suddenly realises she loves her trapper, and goes back in a canoe to rejoin him.

The setting, wildlife and savagery of those times blends beautifully with the music. It's on Youtube, and you can just listen to the music at the very end if you don't want to view the whole film. It's extremely powerful stuff!
