This probably isn't the kind of answer you had in mind, but
to me the song "Cheek to Cheek" in The Green Mile feels
very poignant to me... the juxtaposition of poverty, morbidity
(and death row) next to the images of insouciant affluence
makes me cry every time. Maybe other songs could have
had a similar effect, but for some reason this Irving Berlin
tune packs an emotional wallop for me within this movie.
