Way to go Cameron. Also agree with the scene from Casablanca. And frankly, the version of Waterloo from Muriels Wedding is a favourite too lol

The Beach - Moby's 'Porcelean' - Goose bumps when the reach the 'beach'
Boogie Nights - Rick Springfield 'Jesse's Girl' - With the camera on Dirk's face during the stickup attempt - it's priceless

I think the scenes with Wicked Game and Baby Please Don't Go in Wild at Heart were pretty extra ordinary..

One thing that i think is definately worth a mention is he music recorded by Geinoh Yamashirogumi for 'Akira' it's an amazingly atmospheric soudtrack, brilliant music for a brilliant film. Especially as the bike chase commences at the beginning of the movie and the track 'Kaneda' plays into the blurring neo tokyo night.

Cameron, you are too modest. What about the moment on the bus in Almost Famous when William and Penny and the band start singing Tiny Dancer? Sublime.

...largely used Songs of Leonard Cohen as his soundtrack for "McCabe and Mrs Miller" (1971), to great effect. The songs mirrored the external and internal worlds of the characters and moved the story along.

Richard Thompson's "Dimming of the Day" sung by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio in movie "Limbo". Mastrantonio performs song as a club singer in Alaska, scene is juxtaposed with David Straitharn working on fishing boat. Both have broken lives, looking for restoration. The song in the background as Straitharn works on the fishing boat, matches the rythm of the work-- ropes, nets, ocean, etc. It's an elucidating and meditative moment, and the one perfect thing i remember about the movie.

I actually think that Mr. Crowe has at least two that belong on this list. "Tiny Dancer" is certainly one of them to which I would add "In Your Eyes" from Say Anything. My number one however would be the chilling use of "Sympathy for the Devil" in Hal Ashby's Coming Home.

Nick Lowe's "The Beast in Me" from the opening episode of "The Sopranos", Anton Karas' zither score from "The Third Man" and all of Strauss' waltz music from "2002, A Space Odyssey".

How about the "Third Man Theme"?

Also, there's a great bit in Errol Morris' Gates of Heaven where the kid kicks out the jams out in front of his bungalow-- the pet cemetery and Old Glory waving proudly in the background. Unforgettable.

You used to be pretty good at these kinds of moments too... then Cruise conned you into Vanilla Sky and the whole thing went to hell.

"In Your Eyes" anyone?
"Tiny Dancer?"
"My Cherie Amour"

This is such a sweet moment in Almost Famous, and one that has brought me back to the film many times. If it hadn't been for the Tiny Dancer scene, I might not have really discovered the delights of this film. In all of the downside of "groupiedom", this is a moment of beautiful innocence.

More a movie music moment - when Tom Cruise is trying to find a song on the radio that matches his exhilarated mood.
Also, Tommy Boy - Chris Farley and David Spade in the car, dialing stations, looking for a station/song they can agree to and acting all macho, then cut to them belting out Superstar by the Carpenters.

Melissa Etheridge's song "I Will Never Be The Same" fit perfectly with "Welcome Home Roxy Carmichael". The song essentially summarized the two main characters' relationship with the title character (who never appears in the film).

I like elfdorado's list MUCH more than Cameron's. Cameron's list is mostly a director's type of list. It's not a fan's list. it's pretty darn weak, as a matter of fact, and disappointing coming from a guy who usually does a good job with music in his films. I'd like to second Roy Orbison's "In Dreams" from BLUE VELVET. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY for "Daisy," AND for the use of Johann Strauss' "Blue Danube Waltz" for the docking of the space craft, and the opening from Richard Strauss' "Thus Spake Zarathustra." Mick Jagger's "Memo from Turner" from PERFORMANCE. The Yardbirds performing during BLOW-UP. Peter Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" from SAY ANYTHING, and the Spanish version of Roy' Orbison's "Crying" used in MULHOLLAND DRIVE. And, "Till We Meet Again" from DR. STRANGELOVE. In fact, you could just have created a MUCH better list solely using musical choices from David Lynch's and Stanley Kubrick's films. Also, ....Dean Martin's version of "Sway" from 2046 and the song Anna Karina sings along with in Godard's MY LIFE TO LIVE. Finally, I also like the "Tiny Dancer" scene from ALMOST FAMOUS.

CC, thanks for an outstanding list. But...but..but... 'nothing' from "Oh Brother Where Art Thou?" Also mentionable are several Tangerine Dream cuts from Risky Business, various early metal from Heavy Metal, and a suite of Lynch/Badalamenti cuts from Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet. Oh, yes, a plug for the Plugz's Reel Ten (Repo Man).

This is a great, thoughtful list, though I wouldn't expect less from Cameron Crowe. And I agree with others that Crowe's own use of "Tiny Dancer" in "Almost Famous" should make the list too.
I was particularly glad music used by Quentin Tarantino in his greatly underappreciated "Jackie Brown" made the list, though I would have mentioned a different cut: Bobby Womack's "Across 110th Street." It is used in the film's opening, when we see Pam Grier's Jackie, an underpaid flight attendent for a small airline, making her way through LAX after arriving from Mexico. She is tall and stunning in a regal way, but sems exhausted, as though she had to surmount too many challenges in her lifetime. Bobby Womack's matter-of-fact singing about survival in a drug-dealing ghetto provide an instant understanding of Jackie.

Good list but you hav left out three of my favourites:
1. You're so cool - True romance (Hans Zimmer) Happiest peace of music ever written. Anyone who has seen this film will remember this song forever!
2. Ecstasy of gold - the good the bad and the ugly (Ennio Morricone) Incredible song and great moment in the film. Very memorable
3. The End - Apocalypse Now (The Doors) Amazing start to a film and i will never forget it
