10 Random But Memorable Singing Scenes in Movies


Have you ever been watching a movie – that’s not a musical – and all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere, a musical number or singing scene appears?  It happens in all sorts of movies, be it a comedy, drama, or even science fiction, and a singing scene can often help draw the audience ever further into the movie.  Or, in the case of comedies, it can simply make you laugh.

For the purposes of this post, I selected scenes that are somewhat random, meaning that no scenes from musicals were picked.  Also, I wouldn’t pick a singing scene from something like Walk the Line, because singing is to be expected in a movie like that.  Anyway, let’s get to it – check out 10 random and memorable singing scenes from non-musical movies.

Step Brothers


A hilarious scene from a hilarious movies.  You have to admit, the son has a great voice.



Pretty easily the movie’s most memorable scene, and perhaps the reason we hear “Day O!” blasting over the loudspeakers at baseball games.  I hate that.



My favorite guy in this scene is the poor-man’s Johnny Drama who’s just coked out of his mind.

Wayne’s World


Wayne’s World is responsible for resurrecting (and arguably ruining) this classic Queen song.



A very, very underrated movie.  At first, this scene seems like it’s simply going to feature music in the background…until the cast joins in.

A Clockwork Orange


I couldn’t embed this, so click through to watch Alex sing “Singing in the Rain” while raping someone.  God bless Kubrick.

Southland Tales


Alright, so this is lip-syncing, but it’s a great tune by the Killer’s and gives the audience a glimpse of what it must be like to try Liquid Karma.

Almost Famous


One of the cooler scenes in this movie.



In a movie filled with random gags and quotes, this random song somehow seems entirely appropriate.

Full Metal Jacket


Another Kubrick movie makes the list – does anyone know the significance of the American soldiers singing this song?
