A lousy director will put a particular song in his movie because that song conveys a feeling the director is trying (and failing) to capture on film, and he needs all the help he can get.  A better director will put a song in his movie, and the opposite will happen: The movie will overpower the song.  Take "Stuck In The Middle With You" by Stealer’s Wheel, for example.  I love this song.  It’s a brutal parody of Bob Dylan.  And guitarist Gerry Rafferty is just plain awesome—he produced Richard & Linda Thompson’s album I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight, and, well, just look at the cover art for Rafferty’s solo album City to City.  So there’s a lot I could say about this song, but I can’t listen to it without thinking of the torture scene from Reservoir Dogs.
