Tune In Tuesday: Soundtrack Edition {Vol 2}

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads.  


It's time for another Soundtrack Edition of Tune in Tuesday. Yay for October! Or shall we say Rocktober? Oh, I crack myself up. Anyways, I've got another HUGE list of tunes for you guys. I got a little carried away again. But, you should all be used to it by now :)





White Lies – Death (Jennifer’s Body)


Favorite Line: I can feel my heart beating as I speed from the sense of time catching up with me OR This fears got a hold on me.


The soundtrack is the best part of Jennifer’s Body and Death is the crowning moment for me. I now love White Lies, but Death is still my favorite song of theirs. The lyrics are just amazing.


Heartbeats – Jose Gonzalez – One Tree Hill


Favorite Line:  One night of magic rush. The start a simple touch. One night to push and scream And then relief


Oh, yes. I used to watch One Tree Hill. This song is, by far, the best thing that came from that experience . 



All I Need – Mat Kearney (Grey’s Anatomy)


Favorite Line:  And if all we've got, is what no one can break, I know I love you, if that's all we can take The tears are coming down, they're mixing with the rain,
I know I love you, if that's all we can take.


Oh , Greys. I love you so. You introduced me to Mat Kearney (who I get to see Nov. 18th!!!!!) Anyways, All I Need is played during Derek’s epic “I chose wrong” speech In 3x01. (WATCH IT HERE).  




Cell Block Tango – Chicago

Favorite Line:  Then he ran into my knife. He ran into my knife ten times.


Ahahahahah LOVE IT.



Driveway – The Great Northern (FNL)


Favorite Line:  Remember when you wake up - don't forget, turn out the light. Cause I’m looking out my window for you every night


This song has been on a lot of different TV Shows now, but it me, it will always be a Friday Night Lights song. It is played in the episode, “the Son” when Matt buries his father. And oh my lord, does that scene break my heart. Hell, the entire episode breaks my heart. Driveway fits perfectly in that scene – it’s beautiful, raw and emotional.




Downtown – Petula Clark (Girl, Interrupted)


Favorite Line: the lights are much brighter there, you can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go DOWNTOWN.
 

I LOVE this song. I knew it before the movie, but seeing the movie just made it even better. Downtown is pure sunshine. 




My Sharona – The Knack (Reality Bites)


Favorite Line: oh my little pretty one, pretty one – when you gonna give me some time Sharona?


I was already a fan of this song when I first saw Reality Bites, but coupled with the movie it is just pure magic. It is easily one of my favorite films and I will always make the connection between the song and this scene.



Bang Bang - Nancy Sinatra  (Kill Bill)

Favorite Line:  Bang bang, that awful sound. Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

I’ve heard the Cher version, but you all should know by now that I love Nancy Sinatra. I had always loved this song, but Kill Bill really brings it to life – it fits perfectly with it. Quentin Tarantino is one of my favorite directors, Bang Bang is my favorite Nancy Sinatra song and Kill Bill is one of my favorite movies. 



Coming Down - The Dum Dum Girls (The Secret Circle)

Favorite Line:  You abuse the ones who love you, You abuse the ones who won't.
If you ever had a real heart, I don't think you'd know where to start

I just got this one last week, but I LOVE it. The Secret Circle has the best music. 


Danke Schoen - Wayne Newton (Ferris Bueller's Day Off)

Favorite Line: I recall Central Park in fall, how you tore your dress - what a mess. I confess, that's not all.

Ferris Bueller, you're my hero. I have seen this movie, literally, 100 times. It will never get old. And neither will this little gem of a song :) Cameron Frye, this ones for you.



Lullaby – the Dixie Chicks (True Blood)

Favorite Line:  how long do you want to be loved? Is forever enough? Is forever enough?
From a scene in season one (right after Sookie's grandmother dies) and Bill watches over her house from the front yard. They are just so adorable. I will always love Bill & Sookie. Take that all you neigh sayers. I mean come on. Who can resist the "Sookehhh" :)

El Tango De Roxanne - Moulin Rouge

Favorite Line: Why does my heart cry? Feeling I can't fight. You're free to leave me. Just don't deceive me. And please believe me when I say I love you.

I love the Police. But Holy f-bombs, the tango version of this is incredible. And Moulin Rouge? Oh, what an incredible movie. The whole soundtrack is awesome - but this scene, this song.. it's my favorite. Gives me chills :)

White Lies - I know this song from The Vampire Diaries! love it.

Heartbeats - OH MY GOD. The basketball court confetti scene!!!! So epic.

All I Need - YES! Grey's Anatomy introduced me to Mat Kearney too :-)

Driveway - quite possibly one of the most heart breaking episodes on FNL. My boy Matt Saracen did a superb job! This song fits the tone perfectly.

Goodness, you have a LOT of great songs on here! Such great music, I'm going to have to listen to all of them when I get home. :) "Cell Block Tango" and "El Tango de Roxanne" are two favorites of mine. I thought about adding "Cell Block Tango" but didn't, and now here it is on your massive list! Thank you for sharing all of this great music. :)

I LOVE IT!! My Sharona's intro is my phone's ringtone, lol. It makes me dance each time someone calls.

Jennifer said...

Oh my! So. Much. Awesomeness.

Love White Lies, Bigger Than Us is probably my favourite. It has a really good video as well.

Heartbeats by Jose Gonzalez = <3

I'd not heard of Mat Kearney until now but All I Need has made me an instant fan!

Absolutely LOVE Bang Bang, Lullaby AND El Tango de Roxanne! After seeing that scene again I need to re-watch Moulin Rouge.

Great picks, yet again! :-)
