'The Graduate' (1967)
Song: "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel
Why We Love It: Released in 1965, "The Sound of Silence" exploded after Mike Nichols used it in his game-changing feature 'The Graduate.' The song features heavily in the film, notably in the striking opening credits and during the melancholy and ambiguous ending.
