Title: unbeleivable movie/song fits
Post by: goraz on April 15, 2005, 07:47:53 pm
Aside from the notorious Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" fit, there is one in particular that I discovered through lazying around that fits almost too perfectly.

I was listening to "Reasons to Me", (or similarly titled) by Built to Spill, I don't remember the album, but at the same time I was watching American History X starring Edward Norton and Edward Furlong.

For a real treat, fast forward the movie to about 3 minutes until the credit reel, where the black student takes the very first shot with his handgun toward Edward Furlong. There is a short transition scene before this happens where it pans quickly across a scene of students. At that presise moment, pause the tape and pause the song at 0.01, then play both.
I noticed that cymbal crashes, guitar licks, and certain slowings of the song fit perfectly with the slow water/tear effects the movie has. Also, the song contains a line "Stay with me until I die", which, if timed right, happens during a scene where Edward Norton is holding a wounded, dying Edward Furlong. The movie sequence ends with a peaceful look across Venice Beach, with seagulls flying and waves lapping, also a flashback of Norton and Furlong as little boys. At the exact moment of transition between this scene and the previous scenes, the song also begins to slow down and plays a peaceful melody. Unbeleivably, the cymbal crashes begin again, and the song picks up to the original chorus at the exact moment the credits begin to roll.

There are coincidently other parts of the movie that match with other parts of the Built to Spill album, I just don't remember where.

Does anyone else have any unbeleivable movie/song fits?
