Something Wild is one of those movies where after you see it, you wonder why the hell it isn’t more well-known. It’s two perfect movies smooshed into one. When it goes from a happy-go-lucky sort of fantastical farce into something much more sinister, there’s a literal and visual shift that you can witness. When Ray Liotta, as Ray Sinclair, the psychopathic villain of the film, is introduced, the color palette literally transforms.
Sometimes, a song is featured in a movie and can never be disassociated from that scene. Sometimes, a more obscure song wouldn’t have had had the audience it would have had it not been for that movie. I am forever grateful to have these songs in my life.
Here are some of my favorite musical moments from movies.
