BAD SONG CHOICES FOR YOUR MONTAGE

  1. 1.
    In the Summertime" by Mungo Jerry
    This seems like the perfect song to go under a fun floppy hat montage, but listen closely and you'll realize it's absolutely not. Because it's about date rape.
  2. 2.
    "Pop Goes the Weasel"
    See above.
  3. 3.
    Anything by Radiohead
    It's a cheap move. Earn those emotions! With Philip Glass, or something.
  4. 4.
    "Hallelujah," any version
    So I think my favorite joke I've ever written is in 6-year-old pilot, where the opening of "Hallelujah" starts to play over a totally way emotional moment and then cuts off immediately: "just kidding!" I will take a bow now.
  5. 5.
    "Paradise by the Dashboard Lights"
    Could you imagine?? This song is a montage unto itself.
  6. 6.
    "Mambo Number 5"
    Unless you're Lars Von Trier, in which case, I love it.
