Intro:

Film industry knows that music is a catalyst for emotion and use it for
scenes in mostly every production. Sometimes music turns a scene into
fun or even laughter. So which soundtrack or score music surprise seems to be the funniest? Laugh here.

Rules:

Just movies, not animated or animee (japanese animated). I think the issue is self-explaining, but I want some really funny scenes. So lowest rating 5.5/10 & at least 2000 votes - not negotiable. No scenes of musicals or music movies which are funny, because usually in many of them are a bunch of funny scenes.

Great, pencho. I'm putting them all to the list. The descriptions are good, but I need the source of the music, song. I hope I got the right one on Mr. Bean. Please correct me, if not. ;)

Thanks.

Unfaithfully Yours needs correction, the music used in the scene is Csárdás, composed by Vittorio Monti. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZzJA68SEE4

I have not been able to find out the song of Knock on Wood, it is not on the soundtrack, and everywhere it is just refered as a Russian Ballet Spoof. I only know the coreographer was Michael Kidd.

I know the Csárdás of Vittorio Monti, It's simply great music. And I have a special version of it on CD. But I haven't seen the movie, so I used IMDb to find your suggestion. I'll correct it. ;)

I'm the single vote for Danny Kaye so far. I'm sure if more people had seen Knock on Wood it would be more voted, while the movie is average, the ballet sequence is hilarious and unforgettable.
