On a previous Pick 5, I highlighted 5 songs that feature Superheroes/Comics. While reflecting on this Pick 5, I thought of music that has been featured in comic book movies. Comic book movie soundtracks feature many songs, but some don’t actually see any screen time. So this weeks Pick 5 is music that actually has some screen time.
5 – Scott Pilgrim – Bass Battle
Scott Pilgrim features lots of great songs (especially Sex Bob-Omb’s), but one of my favourites is the bass battle.
4 – Kick Ass – Crazy
A great scene with Kick Ass and Red Mist, cruising the streets listening to “Crazy”.
3 – Watchmen – All Along The Watch Tower
I am a big fan of movies about Vietnam. And one of my favourite Vietnam/music moments is Paint It Black from the beginning of Tour of Duty. Dr. Manhattan in Vietnam with All Along The Watch Tower is a definite close second.
2 – Dick Tracy – Sooner or Later
This is #1. This is one of the best scenes in the movie. This scene has made people who don’t like Journey… at least like this song. (Me?… I love Journey)
