But when he shows up at her front door posing as a caroler and bearing cue cards, she realizes just how mistaken she was.

Heath Ledger‘s Patrick Verona breaks out of his assumed bad-boy persona to serenade Julia Stiles’s character Kat with the song “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You.” I still can’t hear that song without imagining a marching band playing the instrumental part or Heath dancing across the school’s bleachers.
