38.NOTHING HAS BEEN PROVED (Dusty Springfield) – SCANDAL (1988, Michael Caton-Jones)

39.PLAY DEAD (Bjork) – THE YOUNG AMERICANS (1993, Danny Cannon)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4YcrUuf8mo

40.THE RHYTHM OF THE NIGHT (Corona) – BEAU TRAVAIL (1999, Claire Denis)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3ltZmI5LQw
I like the song, but I worship the use of the song in the film. The appearance of the song in the film seems to add a new dimension to the song. I also feel like this in the case of THE POWER OF LOVE in THE SEVENTH CONTINENT.

–The list above contains only vocal songs. As for instrumental soundtrack songs, I like
