* While ''StrangerThanFiction'' has one of the best scores of all time, one moment which is particularly awesome is at Ana's apartment, when Harold begins playing and singing the only song he knows on the guitar - Wreckless Eric's "Whole Wide World". When he [[ShutUpKiss gets interrupted]], the soundtrack cuts in with the original track. ''Rock.''

** Prefigured five years earlier by the rousing performance of 'La Marseillaise' in ''Film/TheGrandIllusion''. Here the Germans celebrate the taking of Fort Douaumont during the Battle of Verdun, ringing the church bells and singing 'The Watch on the Rhine' (sung by Major Strasser and his henchmen in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', even though this song was no longer the 'hit' it had been during the Franco-German War of 1870/71 and, to a lesser extent, UsefulNotes/WorldWarI), but the Allied officers in the POW camp decide to put on their variety show anyhow. Then that show is interrupted by the news that the French have retaken Douaumont, and the performers just on stage - a group of British officers in drag - lead the audience in 'La Marseillaise' to the fury of the camp commandant and his officers, who are sitting in the front row. (Marcel Dalio, one of the stars of ''Film/TheGrandIllusion'', had a bit part in ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' as one of Rick's employees).

* Kenneth Branagh's ''Film/HenryV'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1GDRx-F1C0 "Non Nobis Domine."]] It's a bit of SoundtrackDissonance with the soft single voice starting the song and the voices that join it to finish in triumph as a bloodied Henry walks the muddy battlefield with a dead boy (an young Christian Bale) on his shoulder.

* Amazingly, ''Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London'' spawns a pretty epic cover of Edwin Starr's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6Wygjx2dzc "War"]], especially combined with the fight going on behind it. It's still chill-inducing even over 10 years later.
** 'War! Hurrghh! Was is is gut for?' MADE. OF. WIN.
* From ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g63GNjWdf0Q this]].
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OfXcjLchz0 original 3:10 To Yuma's opening song]] is pretty awesome too.

* From ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', while "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jMruFHTwrY Black Sheep]]" (by The Clash At Demonhead, and/or by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obV-OL3TwXo Metric]]) is arguably the best song in the movie, it's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8QguP8rnn0 Threshold]]," for the fight scene against evil exes #5 and #6, that is the true SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: the music ''is'' the battle, it's awesome ''music'' (major against minor in EpicRocking!), and the scene has a gorilla fighting an ice dragon-y thing!
** Interestingly, the Clash At Demonhead "cover" of "Black Sheep" is widely regarded to be better than the original. The actress Brie Larson is a singer, and embarrassingly, she rather shows up Emily from Metric. Frustratingly, no CD-quality version of it is available.
** There's also the [[ThePowerOfRock Bass Battle]] between Scott and Todd Ingram.
** Matthew Patel's Villain Song. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USvZLNhY9eM If you wat to fight meee...]]

* Bizarre, but Georgio Moroder's [[{{Zeerust}} uber-80's]] 1984 [[{{Macekre}} soundtrack]] to the classic silent film ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' contains several pieces of Awesome, e.g. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epuUqdkO47w "Cage of Freedom"]] which accompanies TheReveal of the [[EvilTowerOfOminousness Tower of Babel]] skyscraper.
** This in turn inspired at least one enterprising Netizen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG8NRPPQOrk to recut]] the Metropolis trailer to the "[[SpiritualSuccessor Bladerunner theme]]" by Vangelis mentioned above.

** ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'''s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdKqbboCXSI main/Arthur theme]] is stock music. Nonetheless, it's so bombastic it would have worked well in a straighter treatment of the Arthurian mythos.

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e4qHRhlJlc Jai Ho]]'' from ''SlumdogMillionaire'' won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It's easy to hear (and see) why.

* ''Film/JohnWick'' has plenty of tracks to choose from.
** First, to get you in the mood to watch a 50-year-old Creator/KeanuReeves kick some ass, here's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kg2aqd621Fc Story of Wick]]. The inclusion of an actual candle being lit marks the song building up just like John's emotions as of late.
** What better to underscore the relationship between Marcus and John, and how the [[spoiler:former will betray Viggo for John's sake]]? Why, just let Music/MarilynManson do it for you, with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNTjM3_0N80 Killing Strangers]].
** John makes a badass entrance to the Red Circle's dance floor as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pv0u7uMn-g LED Spirals]] plays, one of four contributions to the soundtrack by Le Castle Vania. It's followed by the shootout itself, set to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNXsO6j0n4s Shots Fired]]. An energetic dance beat fits John's fast, precise GunFu style.
** One from [[Film/JohnWickChapter2 the sequel]]: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4o2EU5VOzLQ John Wick Mode]] accompanies the Rome Catacombs shootout. Mixing cues from LED Spirals with its own musical progression, it really fits the increased tension and pace of the gunplay for the sequel.
