    OK, I listen to music a lot... in my truck, at the office, at home, doing chores... and some songs make me instantly think of a particular scene from a movie (usually sci-fi, horror, or fantasy naturally ;)).

    For example, when I hear Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult, I song I've enjoyed for years, I now instantly think of the opening scene from the TV mini-series adaption of Stephen King's The Stand. The show starts with a slow camera pan in a US government laboratory where some type of airborne disease has escape. In the hallways and rooms of the lab it is just people dead everywhere, nobody moving. As the camera pans to show various scenes inside Don't Fear the Reaper is what's playing. No dialog (because, you know, they're all dead), not just the song.

    For the purpose of this thread a "song" is music with lyrics likely to be heard on the radio as opposed to original soundtracks that were made for the movie or show, such as the Star Wars theme or other instantly recognizable original musical soundtracks.

    What songs do you hear and instantly think of a particular movie/TV scene? No cheating, think of something from memory! :P

    Moby's "Almost Home" takes me to the final season of True Blood, it ended an episode (can't recall which, lol)


    Sigor Ros's "Daudalogn" immediately reminds me of Elena drowning on Vampire Diaries
