We have to love Al Green, even though he doesn't quite fit the station. Why? Because he's been in some of the best pop culture references ever.
There has been so many moments in culture where Al Green pops up. Heck, even President Obama likes to sing some Al Green occasionally! For his birthday, we decided to pick a few of the best scenes from movies in which Al Green's music made the scene that much more important:
Notting Hill "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart"
Down To You "Let's Stay Together"
Book Of Eli "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart"
Sadly, YouTube didn't have a ton of other scenes from movies, so here's a list of some of the movies that you can catch Al Green's music in:
- Pulp Fiction
- Boys On The Side
- The Truth About Cats & Dogs
- Good Will Hunting
- Mickey Blue Eyes
- Love & Basketball
- Two Weeks Notice
- How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
- Hustle & Flow
- He's Just Not That Into You
- Hope Springs
