Musings, Top Tens

Top Ten: Cameron Crowe’s Playlist

This week’s Top Ten is courtesy of Cameron Crowe (via Empire magazine) – a list of his favourite musical moments in film. And while he starts off by pointing out that “the first thing to remember about any top ten list is that it is not to be trusted”, it is at least a nice snapshot into his mind:

1. ‘Don’t Be Shy’ (Cat Stevens) from Harold and Maude (1971)
2. ‘She Smiled Sweetly / Ruby Tuesday’ (The Rolling Stones) from The Royal Tenenbaums (2002)
3. ‘Falling Slowly’ (Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova) from Once (2006)
4. ‘Going Home: Theme Of The Local Hero’ (Mark Knopfler) / ‘Hoppipola’ (Sigur Ros) from Local Hero (1983) / Heima (2007)
5. ‘Tubular Bells’ (Mike Oldfield) from The Exorcist (1973)
6. ‘Jump Into The Fire’ (Harry Nilsson) from GoodFellas (1990)
7. ‘Everybody’s Talking’ (Harry Nilsson) from Midnight Cowboy (1969)
8. ‘Edge Of Reality’ (Elvis Presley) from Live A Little, Love A Little (1968)
9. ‘Cucurrucucu Paloma’ (Tomas Mendez) from Talk To Her (2002)
10. ‘Where Is My Mind’ (The Pixies) from Fight Club (1999)
