The Yards (1999)

In the rail yards of Queens, contractors repair and rebuild the city's subway cars. These contracts are lucrative, so graft and corruption are rife. When Leo Handler gets out of prison, he finds his aunt married to Frank Olchin, one of the big contractors; he's battling with a minority-owned firm for contracts.

The movie The Yards, released in 1999, features 13 songs from artists like Les McCann, London Philharmonic Orchestra (as The London Philharmonic Orchestra), Petula Clark and The Brand New Heavies. What is your favorite song from The Yards?
