FYC: the legendary scene in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) where the Bride (Uma Thurman) and O-Ren (Lucy Liu) have their final confrontation outside in the snow on the tones of Gheorghe Zamfir's "The Lonely Shepherd".

Thank you, leavey-2. It's nice that you suggested a high rated example. But I literally meant song, which implies singing. So I have to refuse your suggestion. But maybe you have a good song-situation that's bizarre because of the song. So I'm open for it. I'll leave an example for it:

Great One ! Thank you, Dan!
I don't know, why I myself didn't think on this one. Big deal !
I will put it on the list, but first got to sleep some time and do it after work.
Can take about 20 hours, but I'll put it on the list for sure.

The combination of violence and an upbeat or romantic song has become a cliché but it must have been pretty bizarre in 1973 in the bar fight in Mean Streets. (song: "Please Mr. Postman", cover by the Marvelettes)

FYC:
Mr. Blue Sky by ELO - opening of Guardians of the Galaxy II - while the team is getting beat to hell by some giant monster, Baby Groot takes time for a dance break
Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton - opening of Deadpool - credits with crazy slow-mo shot in and out of a scene of Deadpool taking out twenty gangsters with only 12 bullets
Stuck in the Middle with You by Stealers Wheel - Reservoir Dogs - Mr. Blonde starts craving off pieces of the captured cop
Tequila by the Champs - Pee-Wee Herman's Big Adventure - Pee-Wee dances on the bar at a biker joint
Tiny Dancer by Elton John - Almost Famous - William, the band and the Band Aids bond while singing together on the bus
Sister Christian by Night Ranger - Boogie Nights - During the very tense drug deal scene
Damn, It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta by the Geto Boys - Office Space - The guys beat the shit out of an office printer in the middle of a field
Orinoco Flow by Enya - The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - Mikael gets SPOILER by the killer
Hip to Be Square by Huey Lewis and the News - American Psycho - Patrick talks about the greatness of Huey Lewis and the News while hacking a friend to death
Golden Years by David Bowie - A Knight's Tale - Played during an otherwise medieval dance scene
Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton - Mercutio does drag at the Capulets' party
In the Air All Night by Phil Collins - The Hangover - Mike Tyson gets his Collins on
I Put a Spell on You by Screamin' Jay Hawkins - Stranger Than Paradise - Basically throughout the whole movie - Eva, the Hungarian girl new to America, incongruously blasts it wherever she goes

This was fun.

Hi Jen.
Thank you for making so  a big amount of suggestions. I have to go to sleep now, but I'm very interested in your suggestions. I think I will take most of them on the list. Tomorrow I'll watch out for your suggestions. Maybe I will need some help for the images, specially when I don't know the movie.

I know one of them that I think it's not bizarre enough for the list: The guardians-opening. I'm not really sure. I think it's way more funny than bizzare. But maybe some people would second that suggestion? So I would take it on the list, too. ;)

Merry Christmas, Jen. :D

How to say?

The 'Tiny Dancer'-scene in 'Almost Famous' wasn't bizarre at all. The opening scene of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is not bizarre enough (in the spirit of my idea). The 'Deadpool'-opening scene is very bizarre for itself (without music), but the song puts a cream dip on it, so I let it count. ;) I didn't put the Pee-Wee-scene on the list, because I consider a song with only two times 'Tequila' not as a song. It's more like a background noise, even though the scene itself is bizarre.

The printer scene wasn't exact what I thought off, but I let it stay at the end like the 'Betty-White-Option'. I had a long period of considering to take 'Golden Years' in. It's a great scene, but it's too positive. I think more of some things that are bizarre in a more scary way. My first two examples are like what I wanted. I'm not sure of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo' and Orinoco flow. The scene is not realy bizarre because of the music. It's more bizarre because of the acting.

In 'Romeo + Juliet' it's more the fact that Shakespeare wrote the play some centuries ago. But the whole movie is in a modern style, so the drag scene wasn't really bizarre. Maybe a little bit because 'drag' wasn't so established as nowerdays, but not because of the music. The music could have been replaced with each other disco song of the 70's.

Tyson would be in. What was that? What voice? :D But I can't find a proper image to fit with the scene. If there was one, I'd put the Tyson scene on the list.

The 'I-put-a-spell-on-you-scenes' are more austere than bizarre, like it is with all of the Jarmusch movies. They are simple austere. They have their own charme, yes.

Thank you for this great suggestions, which all were some kind of scenes to think of a time. So I've put 5 of your great suggestions on the list. Thank you, Jen.

Your idea of 'Deadpool' even gave a new idea for an option:
'The Watchmen'-intro!

Comedy is in the music in The Deadpool series. They are chosen for the laugh. So in reality they fit in rather than be classified as bizarre.

That being said Jen's Suggestion is my favorite.

In ROMA there is a scene where a man in a forest creature costume sings a Norwegian hymn in the middle of a wildfire. I'm still not sure what that's about.

If you want to use it here are the details:

'Barndomsminne frå Nordland' by Elias Blix performed by Kjartan Halvorsen in Roma (2018)

Please wait, Peter.
I'll watch 'Roma' tomorrow, because my wife would like to watch it with me.
I'll respond to your request after I saw the movie. I'm really curious!

Hello, Peter.
I've put your suggestion to the list. That was really bizarre.
The audience is split between the people and the strange guy.
That's a strange feeling.

Good list!

I noticed a few typos:

#2: disorientated --> disoriented
#4: an romantic --> a romantic 
#6: craving off --> carving off
#11: italian --> Italian 
#12: Bardomsinne --> Barndomsminne  ...  norwegian --> Norwegian

Also, instead of:
Please pick the strangest scene you have seen from them below.

Because 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory ' with Johnny Depp is not tagged as musical, I take it as a normal movie with a few songs in it. So I took the saving scene of Ausgustus Gloop on the list. First I wanted to do that with the old Willy-Wonka-movie with Gene Wilder, but realized it's listed as musical.

'Great poll and so many good choices! 'Tough choice. When I saw the title and read the description I immediately thought of "In Dreams" in 'Blue Velvet,' though, so that would get my vote.

FYC:

"Comanche," byThe Revels, played during the scene when Marcellus Wallace is raped and Butch chooses a weapon.

(There a few images that might work but none that are perfect. This is one that may work the most: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110912/mediaviewer/rm4292161280

Hi, ruby.
I just watched the rape-clip on youtube, because it's a time since I saw that movie.
I didn't take Jen's 'Tequila' scene, because only two words in a song isn't really
a song for me. In your suggestion is not even one word sung, it's pure instrumental.
So I can't put it on the list. But I still thank you for the suggestion. :D

No prob. Memory can be deceptive. Specially when you've not seen the movie since ten years or something like that. I just heard it another time from the soundtrack. Not sung! But yes, anyway this is really bizarre.

I would suggest one example from the horror film "Funny Man". (1994) The titular  killer of the film has been killing throughout the night, and the only surviving victim is partly skinned and bleeding to death. Yet, the killer welcomes the dawn and the sunlight, by listening to the radio and the sweet, melancholy song "Moment of Glory" by John Taylor. He wistfully comments that they don't write songs like than any more.
