    Ever hear a song that is just "OK" but then you see it in a movie or on a TV show and you suddenly like it a lot more? For me these two come to mind:
    From Fast Times at Ridgemont High
    Jackson Browne - Somebody's Baby


    This was played during the closing credits during a Sopranos episode. I've liked it ever since.
    The Kinks - I'm Not Like Everybody Else

    I don't know if it made it better because I loved LOST so much, but I remember two songs from the show that were just so perfect.
    One was Downtown by (I forget who the singer was). It added to the confusion of what time period they were in.
    The other was during the final season. Jack was spiriling downward and the song was Search and Destroy by Iggy Pop. It was perfection.

    I will close the thread with the song I don't ever want to hear again. May Bob Seger suffer a million paper cuts:

    I'm not sure if it made this song better, but it certainly altered it for me forever.
