Oscarweb Round-up: Cameron Crowe's music-in-film picks

Posted by · 7:02 am · October 19th, 2011

Cameron Crowe had a pregnant idea yesterday. How about a top 10 list of music moments in film? His list is full of unique and sometimes surprising picks, though I guess I’ll forgive him for being modest enough to opt out of including “In Your Eyes” from his own “Say Anything.” And judging by comments Chris Cornell made in our recent interview, I imagine the Soundgarden front man would be delighted by the “We Bought a Zoo” director’s #1 choice. Lots of great picks, though. And a nice change of pace on the interwebs. [The Uncool]
