The art of masterfully setting music to moving pictures is nothing new to the Coens, who have been delivering great scenes set to just the right notes since 1984′s “Blood Simple.” In honor of the folksy beauty of “Llewyn,” here are the ten greatest musical moments sprung from the minds of everyone’s favorite two-headed directing monster.
