QOTW: What’s the best use of diegetic* music in a movie? (Diegetic music: music that is actually heard by the characters in the movie, and not just on the soundtrack. A good example: “Stuck in the Middle with You” playing on the radio during the ear-slicing scene in “Reservoir Dogs.”)

About the show:
Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider
Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are movie critics, but not the stuffy, elitist kind. They're not the idiotic fanboy kind either. So what kind of movie critics are they? The kind with an Internet radio show, that's what.
Movie B.S. features reviews of new films both good and bad, smackdowns of the bad movies of yesteryear, and a plethora of other movie-related features. All of it is tied together by cavalier banter between Bayer and Snider, who noticed that there was a dearth of cavalier banter on the Internet and sought to rectify that.
