"Music n movies

So typically Hollywood movies do have a popular soundtrack. But not half as influential on the success of the movie as in Bollywood.

Yet there are some movies, which use a famous or a well heard song at the most appropriate occasions to bring out the real meaning.

So for anyone who has watched "In America" a story about Irish immigrants remember the following scene.

The elder daughter singing "Desparado" by Eagles at a school Talent show searching for her father in the audience and meanwhile him stumbling down the stairs of ther apartment building..drunk..
Dont your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky wont snow and the sun wont shine
Its hard to tell the night time from the day
Youre loosin all your highs and lows
Aint it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why dont you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin, but theres a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before its too late



Or the scene in Squid and the Whale with the older son runnin away from his troubled life ( his parents having divorced)

Hey you, out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Dont give in without a fight.
