    Most movies usually have music over the end credits, either an instrumental or another popular song. I remember seeing Rocky and Bullwinkle(vastly underrated flick, I liked it personally) and the end credits had some pop song that didn't even seem to go with the characters. I was like, what in the hell is this? Granted, kinda catchy, but whatever.

    I remember watching Kiss of the Dragon and going "what the hell?" at the end credits.

    Me too.

    + Troy (2004). Wha the fck was that disco pop shait doing there? The end credits song on the rejected Gabriel Yared score was so much better. The whole score was actually better than the James Horner one they used. It's a shame.

    Seemed to fit the whole "lost love" theme between Bruce and Andrea. And for those who don't know, the singer was Tia Carerre.

    Actually it does sorta fit, because V in the comics spoke the first lines of "Sympathy for the Devil" when meeting the Bischop. Not to mention he is making a "palace revolution" and is a "Street Fighting Man."

    A good example is Kiss Kiss Bang Bang where a mostly jazzy/noir soundtrack ended with some chick shrilling some romantic tune. :huh:

    Yeah, you've got Robert Downey, Jr. himself to thank for that one.

    I figured they wouldn't use the original theme, but I was wondering where the hell Gnarls Barkley's "Transformer" was.

    I know, right?!? That song cranks!!
     
  21. Victor C. Guest

    The song at the end of "Memento" is the same song at the end of "American Psycho".

    Fun facts:

    The song is by David Bowie.

    American Psycho starred Christian Bale.
    Memento was directed by Chistopher Nolan.

    David Bowie would later be in The Presige with Bale, directed by Nolan.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    "Something in the Air."

    And the coincidence is that they're all massive badasses. :up:

    I remember hearing it for the first time and thinking, "Well, that's obviously going to be in the Transformers movie."

    Yeah i know, but it seemed to me that the stones song kinda broke the end (i would have prefered to hear "This Vicious Cabaret" by David J)

    That weird ass song at the end of all Bourne films. It starts off with that cheesy high pitched ringing. Then goes into some slow cheesy love 'Bond' type song.

    Everytime it had me and my gf laughing our asses off.
