Don't Fear the Reaper makes me think of the opening of the mini-series of Steven King's The Stand
I hate purity. Hate goodness. I don't want virtue to exist anywhere. I want everyone corrupt.

"This is the End" inevitably makes me think of Apocalypse Now whenever I hear it. Also any "Vangelis" reminds me of Blade Runner. :)

Til I Hear It From You makes me think of Empire Records

Tears for Fears (my eighth favorite band whose name rhymes with itself) “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” summons an image of a house succumbed to Death by Popcorn.


WINNER, WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!!

Also, Burn by the Cure, always reminds me of Eric Draven punching his mirror just before applying his crow makeup.

..and I see the opening sequence to Donnie Darko everytime I hear Echo & the Bunnymen's Killing Moon
This totally looks familiar.. I know I've seen it before somewhere..

Gloria by Van Morrison reminds me of the Outsiders

Time is on My Side always reminds me of Elias Koteas swaggering in hand/ankle cuffs on his way to the gas chamber. He was way too good at creepy in that brief role.

Edgar Reese is one of the best serial killers ever! :)

My favorite quote (and my status on Facebook sometimes):

"There are moments that mark your life, moments when you realize nothing will ever be the same. And time is divided into two parts, before this and after this. Now, sometimes, you can feel such a moment coming. That's the test...or so I tell myself. I tell myself at times like these strong people keep moving forward anyway, no matter what they're gonna' find…"

"Red Right Hand" was really overused in the 90's, but it always triggers 2 things for me ... the Scream trilogy, and Identity (where it wasn't even used!).

During a recent long drive I realized that I can't hear "Any Way You Want It" by Journey without imagining Rodney Dangerfield dancing next to a tricked-out golf bag, or hear "The Night Chicago Died" by Paper Lace without thinking of Jack Black singing about how "angina's tough".
You see, Hopsi, you don't know very much about girls. The best ones aren't as good as you probably think they are and the bad ones aren't as bad. Not nearly as bad.

My favorite part of that is Wang.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Burn On by Randy Newman always reminds me of Major League.
