give me a mix featuring songs from memorable movie scenes

I had a lot of fun compiling this mixtape! I love every one of these scenes, and it was hard both to file it down to just 19 songs and not make them all ‘80s throwbacks. Anyway, rather than citing which albums the songs came from, I referenced the movie soundtrack instead... for the sake of clarity, I guess. ENJOY!!
