Almost Famous + Tiny Dancer

So on the subject of the Open Road (yes I just made it a proper noun) and Americana, nothing captures the sentiment as well as this moment in Almost Famous. The band is upset with each other, but as they drive through some scenic roadscapes they randomly recall why they love music and spontaneously join in for the chorus of Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.” Amazingly, even though no one formally began the song, they all have it playing through their heads in perfect time. Damn you Cameron Crowe for the way you can make such cheesy moments so damn amazing.
