Sing Along Time

On the flip side of the movie soundtrack coin are those scenes where music is a direct line from the movie to the audience when the characters are enjoying the tune right along with you. These are a selection of memorable musical moments performed on film with one line associations.

Tiny Dancer - Elton John
Almost Famous
Cameron Crow knows how to build a soundtrack (this movie explains how he got that way ) and the timing and song choice for this scene is impeccable.

Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Wayne's World
You know you've recreated this scene at least once, just admit it.

Lets Get It On - Jack Black
High Fidelity
Hands down one of the best movies about music lovers, by music lovers for music lovers.

Kiss The Girl - Little Mermaid
The Little Mermaid
This is one of those Disney songs that is oddly appropriate for mermaids and humans alike.

Wig In A Box - Hedwig
Hedwig & The Angry Inch
Brilliant, simply brilliant.

Moon River - Audrey Hepburn
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Audrey with a guitar on a fire escape. An iconic quality of movie moment that just doesn't seem to happen anymore.

***This one took A LOT of digging so I hope you enjoy...

Al La Claire Fontaine - Naomi Watts & Children's Choir
The Painted Veil
