What's your favorite song from a movie and why?

I'm a fan of John Williams (Hedwig's Theme, Star Wars, Indiana Jones), but I'm becoming increasingly a fan of Ennio Morricone (A Fistful of Dollars, Sixty Seconds to What?, The Ecstasy of Gold ).

Currently, The Ecstasy of Gold is my favorite, due to the constantly building crescendos and good vocals.

I love Filter's cover of Happy Together, from the Stepfather. Actually, it's not a good movie but this song is freaky cool.
Otherwise, Playground Love by Air from Virgin Suicides, or Something in the air bu David Bowie (the movie remix) from American Psycho !

The music from Lord of the Rings wins by a mile. ALthough Inception's soundtrack was good as well.

That's a tough question but I'll say Star Wars. How about TV-Series?
My choice would be Battlestar Galactica (the original series).

I'm not too sure about just one piece.
Although the Juno soundtrack is mind blowing.

Well, LOTR's music fits amazingly, the Inception soundtrack is awesome (as long as you have a good bass); Holes also had some pretty good music in it. The Star Wars soundtrack is well known. If I had to pick a favorite, LOTR as it ties into the movie. If I had to pick one for anywhere, anytime, Inception wins.

mine would probably be Easy A, Zombieland, Harry potter, Hayao Miyazaki films, and probably some musicals like wicked or something.

The Pixies - Where is my mind from Fight Club. Amazing song. I love the Pixies.

And for TV series my favorite song is the theme of SouthLAnd.

I love John Murphy, most notable for 28 days later and Sunshine soundtracks.

From A Beautiful Mind or The Book of Eli

Both are slow to start, but are very memorable.

Most of the songs Phil Collins puts in Disney movies. I think most will recognize him from Tarzan, such as You'll be in my heart.
