Dear DoctorBuster

I want to draw your attention to the fact that the music piece "The Lonely Shepherd" does not play with the fighting scene between The Bride and O-Ren Ishii. This scene is partially accompanied with an instrumental version of "Please don't let me be misunderstood".

"The Lonely Shepherd" plays with the scene where Hattori Hanzo hands the sword over to The Bride and with the very last scene of the movie.

Kind regards
Fae

I'm not using the exact images from the scene, I'm just using images to refer to the films themselfs.

Title should be: Instrumental Music You Will Never Hear the Same Way Again

Question: Films tend to use famous instrumental music in their scenes. Which instrumental music piece will you never listen the same way again?

This sentence: Thanks to these following movies. should be removed. It is a fragment and superfluous. See my comment above about the title capitalization - this is per IMDb requirements.

I associate "Sarabande" much more with Redacted (2007) than with Barry Lyndon (1975).

DoctorBuster,

Thanks for providing a new image for choice #10.
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls033134589/#10

I will most likely vote:
Every song used in Fantasia (1940)

I first heard "Symphony No. 7 in A, op. 92, 2nd movement" when I saw Zardoz (1974). If you watch you may occasionally hear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Jonathan Batiste and his band Stay Human play a jazz version of this piece of music.

Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro has been used in tons of titles. For me, it = A Room with a View, but it might be a different title for others - Prizzi's Honor? Sing? Now You See Me 2? Mr. Bean's Holiday? Guys, listen and see which it is for you:

Good poll. Rather appropriately, I couldn't read it without thinking of the Billy Connolly line: "My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger."

FWIW, I'll now forever associate "Sarabande" with Dave Gorman's Found Poetry, but that's another matter...

I Gibson,

I generally think of Looney Tunes whenever I hear the William Tell Overture. I've only had the good fortune of hearing the William Tell opera once.
