let's try the opposite, songs you like much more after some secondary use in other media or context. I predict this will be a shorter thread, but Kung Fu Fighting was much improved for me after this movie

Anyone else?

Queens Another one Bites the Dust was vastly improved by its use in a commercial...

I was a fan of the song The W.A.N.D. by The Flaming Lips after I heard it in a cell phone commercial.

The number one song here would HAVE to be Q Lazurus' "Goodbye Horses" as seen on The Silence of The Lambs.

And as much as I like Devotchka, I was meh about thier song "How This Will End" when I first heard it, was still meh about it when it was on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack, but have grown strangely attracted to it having heard it on the Gears of War 2 trailer. How very odd...
