Songs that make you think of things...
« on: 04 May, 2014, 01:38:40 am »
Me and a workmate were discussing this the other day. Songs that as soon as they come on the radio instantly make you think of something.

Be it getting an ear cut off or Ray Winstone in some speedos

What (if any) songs do you find do this to you?

Obviously songs get used in lots of films so don't list every song used in a movie, more just the iconic stuff that everyone relates the song with the movie to.

Intaferon - Steamhammer Sam

Was never a big hit, but I liked it.  Always reminds me of 'Max Headroom', as that's when I first saw it. Great show, with some very good tunes, and funny inserts.  Takes me back to my yoof! ;)
I don't have a drinking problem.  I drink, I get drunk, I fall over.  No problem!

I'm up on the eleventh floor
And I'm watching the cruisers below...




Pretty much any song that ends a Wes Anderson film. He's twee as balls but I love him.

Pinball Wizard makes me think of Chorlton & The Wheelies.

I shouldn't have to tell anyone what this makes me think of...

and no, it's not Father Ted smoking while Dougal roller skates around the room and Father Jack has a drink...
