Fandom Friday: 5 Songs

5 fandom friday - 5 Songs

Five songs that remind me of a TV episode/Movie II

As I mentioned in my last Five Fandom Friday post, I had problems selecting just five songs to include on the list. So this week, I have decided to talk about the five more songs that remind me of TV episodes or movies.

  1. Moon River – Audrey Hepburn
    Breakfast at Tiffany’s
    This has always been one of my favourite movies. Yes, I am upset the song is now used in an advert now! But the classic scene of a “dressed down” Holly Golightly singing on the fire escape is one of my favourite from the movie.
  2. Eyes – Rogue Wave
    Heroes – Genesis (SO1E01)
    Remember the first season of Heroes, the show was original, unlike anything else at the time. In the final scene of the pilot, Peter gets into a cab that Suresh is driving. The two briefly talk, it’s one of the first meetings of “Heroes” As the cab pulls away, Peter watches the Solar Eclipse from the back window of the cab.
  3. Hide and Seek – Imogen Heap
    Lost Finale Teaser
    Technically, this isn’t from a TV show. In the U.K. The TV channel Sky One broadcast Lost, before the series finale, the channel heavily advertised the fact it was Sim-casting the show at the same time as it aired in the United States. The trailer for the finale, featured the Imogen Heap song, the lyrics of which were very apt for Lost!
  4. Come and Get My Love – Redbone
    Guardians of the Galaxy
    Whilst Hooked on a Feeling might be the song most people associate with GOTG, this is the song that hooked me as a fan. I went to see GOTG, solely based on it being part of the Marvel Universe. I didn’t have any expectations. When the movie started and we first see Starlord dancing to this song. I fell in love with Peter Quill and the movie.
  5. Consequence – The Notwists
    Push
    Push is a guilty pleasure movie for me, it might be because of Chris Evans. I am not sure. It’s a silly science fiction about a group of people with powers on the run from an evil corporation. Of course, there is a subplot involving a love story and this song plays during the romantic scene. Extremely cheesy, but I adore the song.
