The right musical accompaniment at just the right moment can elevate even the most powerful endings over the top and right into the forefront of the mental queue every time. And sometimes having a great piece of music spliced in at just the right moment can take even the most mediocre of cinematic flairs into the back of the human brain, giving them ample opportunity for memory. Though it would all be for not, in my opinion, if they didn't have the right graphical makeup to bring it all together. However, in this day of copycat cinema, I'm more than willing to accept something that's just beautiful, or over the top fun. So, for your listening enjoyment, amusement, or in some cases frustration, I give you some of my favorite credit sequences from the last few years:

There are quite a few others I would include but simply couldn't find good videos for them. They include Extreme Ways for Bourne Ultimatum, Into the West for Return of the King, and Jai Ho for Slumdog Millionaire, among others.
So, what are some of your favorite music + credit title combos of the last few years?
