100 Greatest "Music Scenes" in Movies

Mew Lists has come up with their version of the 100 Greatest "Music Scenes" in Movies. I know you'll disagree with some of them. I would have liked to see the following included: Ray Charles singing "Mess Around" in Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987), the "Stayin Alive" segment from Foul Play (1978), the karaoke scene from Paperback Hero (1999), the title song from Shaft (1971), the title song from Live and Let Die (1973), "Let the River Run" from Working Girl (1988), "Why Don't You Do Right" from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), "Sooner or Later" from Dick Tracy (1990), "Cruisin'" from Duets (2000), the title track from Mo' Better Blues (1990), the karaoke scene from The Actors (2003), Wolfman Jack playing "Green Onions" in American Graffiti (1973), and "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" from At The Circus (1939). What about you?

Music is so personal, isn't it? I now have a list of movies to watch. And I am astounded and horrified that so many of my favourites aren't on there.

More great excerpts! Thanks, Henry, especially showing us Dudley Moore in one of his most memorable scenes.

You do like your jazz, don't you, Henry? These latest clips certainly show why.
