Musical Interludes

I don't watch 'The Walking Dead", but I know it's a fairly bleak look at an apocalyptic world. So imagine my surprise the other night, when I heard the bouncy tones of The Bee Gees 1966 song "Spicks and Specks" playing while my son and his friends watched one episode. Apparently the song was used during a rather critical scene in the show, while one character walked alone. Do you enjoy when TV shows or movies use music that is essentially completely out of context?

The 2013 movie 'The Great Gatsby' featured a soundtrack that blended traditional jazz with modern-day hip-hop, sometimes in the middle of a song, and critics and movie-goers either loved it or hated it. If you saw the movie, what did you think about the use of music?

Horror movies often use music that seems to contradict what is happening on the screen, with often chilling results. How many of these music contradictions do you remember?
