4. A Clockwork Orange - Beethoven: Symphony No. 9
If you're hoping for an uplifting dose of universal brotherhood and a cracking tune, you can't go far wrong with Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Unless, that is, you're listening to it in Stanley Kubrick's dystopian future, where the main character is a sociopathic delinquent whose interests include violence... and Beethoven. It's hard to avoid the music throughout the film, where it acts as the trigger to a series of terrifying events.
