    Musical Montages

    Post by affrosponge88 on Wed Nov 28, 2012 10:10 pm

    I am a sucker for a good montage, specifically on my favorite television shows.

    I think The Wire's S3 finale montage was the best one of the five. The song fits perfectly, and it's such a hopeful moment amidst all the cynicism.



    Tying in with the David Simon theme, the ending of Generation Kill is also a fantastic use of a montage, one that the characters literally are watching and reacting too. It's a vivid use of Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around" (even if the song itself gets abused too much of late). The fact that the video uses actual taped footage from the war makes it even more haunting.



    Let's not forget where it all began though, Miami Vice was there first, and made history by the end of its pilot with the use of Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight," still one of the best scenes of television of all time. Certainly one of the most influential...



    Also, Chuck was always good for a great closing montage as well, and the music selection was always spot on. Season 2's finale montage was perfect.



    (I would have included one from The Shield, but virtually all of them are not on youtube, which is a crime against humanity. Also, let's not forget that Mad Men made the best one of last season by using "Tomorrow Never Knows.")

    What are your favorites?

    Every Breaking Bad one. The "On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever" cooking sequence. The shiving montage. "Crystal Blue Persuasion." This one:

    I know it ain't TV, but every montage in Fatal Deviation is genius.

    Did Weeds have any good music montages? Because I feel like I need to vote for Weeds on this one.
