Some of the best pieces of cinema have been defined by music - whether they be biopics focusing on musical stars, movies starring musicians branching out or simply films with a totally killer soundtrack. There are a whole host of ways that music can make the difference between a killer or a filler film in your collection and here we celebrate them in all their glory. Remotes at the ready...


The video accompaniment to Neil Young’s classic 1979 live album of the same name, this film really needs a DVD release.

Capturing Young at his creative peak, where shows would veer from electric to acoustic at the drop of a pick, this is one of the definitive concert films.

Best music moment: ‘Like A Hurricane’ performed like a, well, hurricane.
