1. The Graduate (1967), “The Sound of Silence”
  2. The Royal Tenenbaums (2001), “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard”
  3. Almost Famous (2000), “America”
  4. Obvious Child (2014), “Obvious Child”
    It’s hard to capture the feeling of a great song in words, but two drunk twenty-somethings in the beginning stages of like, air-drumming and jumping on the couch to a beloved beat from childhood: that says it all
  5. Garden State (2004), “Only Living Boy in New York”
    people have A LOT of feelings about Garden State and its emotional manipulation and that's a list in and of itself. BUT I still love the scene where Zach Braff and Natalie Portman kiss in garbage bag ponchos as Paul Simon sings “let your honesty shine, shine, shine.” 💕
