Songs that aren’t in movie scenes but could totally be there

I am going strictly on look and movement within the scene, not within the context of the scene. Adding these songs to the clips simply makes me go “hey…that’s super neat…wow.”

The Iconic:

“Bad Enough For You” by All Time Low with “Detention Dance” scene from “The Breakfast Club.”

I actually stumbled upon this mashup a couple of years ago and never had a use for it until now, so I give you this work of art.

The Twist Ending:

“On A High Ledge” by Boston Manor with the closing scene from “Now You See Me.”

This scene immediately popped into my head when this album dropped last year. The carousel choreography and the eerie intense vibe of the song make for one super cool combination.

The Childhood Favorite:

“Rocket” by The Wanted with both “Falcor Flight” scenes from “The Neverending Story.”

I will be completely honest, this movie slips into my subconscious far too often. I watched it so much growing up so it doesn’t make sense that I forget about it all the time. But upon rewatching these scenes, I knew this song would be the perfect fit.

The Punch To The GUT:

“The Stigma (Boys Don’t Cry)” by As It Is with Dally’s Death scene from “The Outsiders.”

Not only does this song contextually fit this scene due to the toxic masculinity that RADIATED from these characters, but the moment we see Dally truly break that mold is what breaks the mold for the other characters. I bawled when I read this part of the book in middle school and it still makes me emotional to this day. Adding this song just made it that much more emotional.

One that’s not mine

“Holding Out For a Hero” by Bonnie Tyler with the final battle in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

I didn’t think of this one and I am so mad that I didn’t. It fits much better than Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” in my opinion, and I can’t get enough of it.
