Time for something different... and there's nothing like a closing credits song that hits just right.
This is obviously not based on how much you like the song itself... but how perfectly the song fits the end of the film. The song could be played at the end of the film (and end as the credits begin), start in the film and bleed into the credits, or begin at the opening of the end credits.
And I think this should be kept to songs and not pieces of the film's score... unless anyone objects.
So send me a ranked list of your top 25 closing credits songs by Sunday, January 24th... 2021.
Your ballot should include both the name of the song and the name of the film.

Okay, last FYC post:
Baby, You're a Rich Man - The Social Network Extreme Ways - The Bourne Supremacy Livin' Thing - Boogie Nights The Lonely Shepherd - Kill Bill Vol. 1 Cavalleria rusticana - Raging Bull Mozart's Requiem - Come and See Bach's St Matthew Passion - The Sacrifice Iron Man - Iron Man Somebody to Love - A Serious Man Mr. Sandman - Halloween II
Edit: I changed my choice of Extreme Ways from The Bourne Identity to The Bourne Supremacy because the way the song kicks in after "Get some rest, Pam. You look tired" is just too good.
Voted! Maybe it's just because I'm a sucker for a great end-of-movie needle drop, but this is one of the toughest poll responses I've ever had to narrow down.
