What songs best suits different movies? Ignore the original theme song for the movies and pick out your own! Each round there will be a new list of movies to decide and argue the songs which best fit those. We will each give our own different and unique opinions.

You may (it would be helpful and nice to) post YouTube videos of the songs which would you think would match the movies.

READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY:

1st Round: Acceptance, Suggestions or Questions (you can add anything to the introduction of this "debate"), and List of Movies.

-Pro gives list of the movies which will be debated upon in this round for designated theme songs and then chooses songs for them.*
-Con gives another list (his/her own list) of movies which will be debated upon for designated theme songs. Con agrees/disagrees with Pro's theme-song choices; chooses his own theme song for the movies HE knows of which was mentioned by opponent.

2nd Round: Lists (of songs/movies) and "Rebuttals"

-Pro agrees/disagrees with Con's theme-song choices; chooses his own theme song for the movies he knows of which was mentioned by Con. Pro makes a new list of movies with their appropriated songs.
-Con agrees/disagrees with Pro's theme-song choices; chooses his own theme song for the movies he knows of which was mentioned by Pro. Con makes new list of movies with their appropriated songs.

3rd Round: Agreeing/Disagreeing (which songs bet fit which movies)

-Pro gives best movie/TV show with chosen song of his lists and says why it's the best.
-Con gives best movie/TV show with chosen song of his lists and says why it's the best

*Minimum for the List of Movies in Round 1 and 2: three movies plus chosen songs

Seinfeld, with "Got your Back," is a good choice in my opinion but I like the current music for it better! And you posted the same YouTube video by Danger Danger twice (I'm assuming accidentally).

I didn't intend for it to be replacement. What I understood by the question is a song that fits well. Reason I chose that song was to reflect the funny, snarky nature of "Seinfeld." As for Danger Danger, you're correct. I meant to put "Under the Gun" for "Mississippi Burning." Reason I chose that one was it's a sad song that could easily reflect the reality of life in the Deep South. It reminds me of a local Kleagle, who in 1958, said, "They want to put white children and colored children into the melting pot of integration, from which will come a conglomerated, bladder, mongrel types of people."

Continued List


MOVIES
"Another 48 Hours"
(Calloway -- "I wanna be rich")
Fits well with the roudy, crazy nature of the movie. A racist, arrogant cop (Cates) and ex-con (Murphy) having to work together, but they eventually become close buddies in the end.

"Above the Law" (1988 Steven Seagal movie)
https://www.youtube.com...
(Winger -- "Madalaine")
Reflects the hardcore nature of the movie well. Nico Toscani deserves this to be his theme song. A hot-tempered cop with big cojones.

TV shows
"Secret life of an American Teenager"
https://www.youtube.com...;(to show what an arrogant douche George Juergens is)
Debate Round No. 2

For my part (Pro's), the best chosen theme-song was...

..."Monster" by Paramore, to go with the TV Show "Walking Dead." It is equally tied with my choice for the kids' movie "Wall-E," by which I chose the song "Funhouse" to go with it. I like it because it gives me chills of the world being destroyed by a 'monster,' which in this case would be zombies, and it fits really well with the characters and plot. The Funhouse song was a bit space/sci-fi-ish so it worked for a story of a robot in a future world.

For Con's part in this debate, I think the best chosen theme-song was...

..."Rock on the Radio" by firehouse, to go with the TV show "Secret Life of an American Teenager." I also liked his/her choice for the Seinfeld TV Show. It is fascinating how music changes the mood, dramatization, and even the plot of the stories told on screen.

This has been a fun debate. I thank Adam2 for accepting and hope the votes to the winner! (Whoever that may be.)

VOTERS/READERS:
To score us you must say which of us chose the most fitting sound track songs for the appropriate movies. Conduct points and Best Arguments go to whoever had the best songs to go with the movies!!

Same here. I chose "Rock on the Radio" sorta to showcase the arrogant Klansman type of people. George Juergens acts like a Klan member anyhow, so it makes sense.

"I wanna be rich" would have fit well with the early 90s scenes, being "Another 48 Hours" was released in 1990.

Same here, thank you.
