I love a good musical. Who am I kidding, I love a bad musical, too. But I think I like musical surprises even more. I like it when there is a strange, full-on musical moment in a film that is otherwise not a musical. Like Britany Snow’s character, Bobby-Lynne, singing the entirety of “Landslide” in X (2022).

So I put together a short video of five movies that have musical moments in them. Enjoy!

  1. Yes Man (2008)
  2. Gas Pump Girls (1979)
  3. The Jerk (1979)
  4. Texas Lightning (1981)
  5. H.O.T.S. (1979)

Or, if you prefer, here’s each of them individually. That way it is easy to see just the one you want!

“Jumper” from Yes Man (2008)

“All of My Friends” from Gas Pump Girls (1979)

“Tonight You Belong to Me” from The Jerk (1979)

“Typical Day” from Texas Lightning (1981)
