    17 Times Where An Amazing Movie Or TV Scene Could've Been Made Better With A Different Song

    Sorry in advance for all the Marvel.

    One of the newest trends on TikTok is adding new music to a movie or television scene. User @jbuckstudios first started it, adding "Cotton Eye Joe" to this scene from It.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    People have since stitched the first part of the video to share their own versions of movie and TV scenes with new music, and the results are inspired, hilarious, and sometimes heartbreaking. Here are some of the best!
