There’s a British horror film called “My Little Eye” that I saw a bit of a ways back. It’s not a particularly memorable film except that it used a lot of night vision effects and was one of Bradley Cooper’s first film roles. The premise is that five people inhabit a house, Big Brother style, with the prospect of collection a share of prize money if they serve out their term despite various offputting hijinks unleashed on them by the show’s creators. As the contestants eventually learn, to their horror, the “reality show” is actually just a setup for a snuff film, with gamblers placing bets on the order in which the contestants will die. At the end, the last virgin standing escapes the house and falls into the arms of a police officer, only for him to handcuff her and later shoot her in the back as she tries to run off into the woods.  The film ends with a shot of a TV monitor showing her lying on the floor of a locked room, bleeding and moaning and whimpering in fear, before the camera is switched off and the final credits roll.  That’s kind of how the end of this football season felt to me.  Here’s the song that plays.

This week’s theme: exit music for a film.  Throw down some of your favorite songs that were used to close out films.  They don’t have to be anywhere near as dark as this one; I just figured I’d strike while the iron was hot.

Late entry because I just saw this movie “World’s Greatest Dad” for the first time last night. Really fucking dark, and pretty damn good. This wasn’t the credits song, but it played over the final scene, so let’s not split hairs. Also it’s Bowie and Mercury, so fuck you twice for protesting.

How about the end credits music from Apocalypse Now?

And since it’s the final song on the soundtrack Ride of the Valkyries

I didn’t use the movie scene because the explosions are LOUD!

It’d be rather remiss of me to not include Shadow on the Sun from the ending of Collateral.

I’m a big fan of this song and of Green Street Hooligans. So much so that I had to go and scour the internet in search of this it back in 2007.

I know it’s just called “End Credits” but I love how well it fit in 28 Days Later.

Michael Franti & Spearhead have some hit and miss songs, but this is definitely a good one, and closes out the terrible masterpiece that is Snakes on a Plane.

That other song by Cobra Starship later in the credits is pure garbage…

Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings (possibly one of the saddest pieces of music ever created)

One of my all time favorite movies is The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi which ends with a fantastic musical and dance sequence, done mostly with taiko drums and tap. It’s enjoyed a lot more when watching the video rather than just listening to it, as the choreography and editing really brings it all together.

As a kid, I only knew this song as the “closing to Happy Gilmore.” I’m glad that has changed.

Skynyrd takes a lot of shit, mostly because of their dumbasss fan base, but they had some damn good music. A lot of it is so played out it never needs to be heard again, but still good.

The end of “Z”. The ban on modern math is happening.

Love this band.

While I enjoyed the movie The Devil’s Rejects and was satisfied with the ending, I’ll be fucked if I’m posting Free Bird.

That’s one of those songs that needs a permanent moratorium, along with Sweet Home Alabama. And I say that as a Skynyrd fan.

Fuck China for not blowing us all up before last night could happen.

You just know some Masshole is gonna chime in with “The only reason Jason Taylor is in the Hall of Fame is because of Brady’s letter”

Which is not only the hottest of takes but complete bullshit.

“Guardians of the Galaxy”

I stole Brady’s jersey, and then went to the local hospital to soak it in AIDS infected blood, infant shit, nuclear waste from the xray machine, and then wrapped it in the intestines that had been removed from a cancer ridden, obese child molester.

Because I fucking hate the Patriots even more now.
