I've always found it quite fascinating how certain films become so iconic and ingrained in pop culture that sometimes a song that is played in the film becomes forever associated with that film.

For example, what film (if any) immediately comes to your mind for each of the following songs?



1. "You've lost that love and feeling" by the Righteous Brothers

2. "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones

3. "The End" by the Doors

4. "Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard

5. "Twist and Shout" (the cover version by the Beatles)

No 2 - I'm sure was a War film set in Vietnam? I'm going to say FMJ.

No 3 - That would be Apocalypse Now.

The others I don't know.

You are correct with #2 and #3!

For This Is The End, the only thing I could think of was The Doors movie, because it has been so long since I've seen Apocalypse Now.

Here's three I thought of:
Unchained Melody
Great Balls of Fire
Son of a Preacher Man

"Paint it Black" is "Tour of Duty," an 80's 'Nam show that was awesome. The song was also the show's theme.

#1 is "Top Gun," obviously. smile

I see there have been no guesses yet on #4. Maybe that one is not as obvious.

That's not the film I had in mind but if that song was indeed played in the Hard Day's Night film then that's a valid answer as well. biggrin

I'm not sure if it was Panzer,just a wild stab in the dark. It has to be some while since I saw that movie. Probably 30-40 years maybe?
