Some good ones have already been mentioned. I feel obligated to make my annual post of these two videos. I know I've posted these a ton of times, but they get better every time you watch them. When it comes to musical moments in film, it doesn't get much better.
Really liked the aforementioned Pixies at end of Fight Club & Michael Madsen dancing to Stuck in the Middle with You (Delaney, Bonnie & Friends) in the Reservoir Dogs ear slicing sequence.
Good call Chucky on The Big Lebowski songs, best p/o them was the Jeff Bridges dream sequence set to the Willie Nelson version of Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In). The Coen Bros. films have all extraordinarily great soundtracks.
I melted when the prom night band went into the Sundays' version of Wild Horses when Angel asks Buffy to dance in BtVS, a TV show granted but I nonetheless melted. Little trivia: the late great Gram Parsons wrote that for the Stones, Keith Richards & Parsons wrote Dead Flowers, both country ballads unusual for the Stones, together.
Speaking of Parsons, when Gram's ghost says his final goodbye in Johnny Knoxville's car in Grand Theft Parsons & Rhinestones In the Ashes starts up (you don't have to be a Parsons fan btw to love that film).
They use the Beatles In My Life too much, every time a character reflects on his/her past in several films. Springsteen's Glory Days or Forgotten Years from Midnight Oil are better.
Dylan lyrics are always classic, one of the best is in Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid when Slim Pickins goes to the lakeside knowing he's going to to die & KNockin' On Heavens Door plays.
The soundtrack to Natural Born Killers is awesome & stunning by itself, music by Trent Reznor of NIN.
The Leonard Cohen theme, The Future, the chorus says it all:
Things are going to slide,
Slide in all directions
Wont be nothing
Nothing you can measure
The blizzard of the world
Has crossed the threshold
And it has overturned
The order of the soul
