Best Score – Shout

Purpose of Best Score.

National Lampoon’s Animal House (1978)

Starring: Peter Riegert, Tom Hulce, Verna Bloom, John Belushi, Bruce McGill, James Widdoes,  Kevin Bacon, Stephen Furst, John Vernon, Donald Sutherland

Screenplay by: Harold Ramis

Directed by: John Landis

Music: “Shout” by Otis Day and the Knights

In the most iconic frat film ever made as well as the one that began National Lampoon’s legend, the “Shout” scene from the toga party is probably the most memorable in the film. Performed by Otis Day and the Knights, the song and the film have become heavily associated with one another.  It’s a seamless incorporation of a popular song into a movie that feels neither hackneyed nor, like so many instances in which bands are crowbarred into films, bolted on.
