The new topics continue today! Songs in film is going to be a fun one for sure. I’m a sucker for great song placement in a film. When that right song hits as the scene plays out, (you know the feeling) it all makes it that much more poignant.
The first one I present to you is Lynyrd Skynyrd’s classic “Free Bird,” which you hear playing at the end in Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects. This is the ABSOLUTE BEST place this song has ever been heard in a film. It’s such an iconic song that the way the climax of the song hits when the bullets are flying… OH MY! Anytime I hear “Free Bird” played anywhere, I can’t help but always think of this scene.
Let me know what you think!!
