this is where jimmy (robert deniro) first encounters the thought of whacking his gang. and then, warming up to it instantly, he makes up his mind to bump off all his crew members and keep the money from the heist for himself.

this is soon confirmed in liotta's monologue but this shot is pure cinema. and good music.

apparently, when schoonmaker and scorsese were laying the track under this shot while editing, they discovered the sync between the riff and deniro's eyebrows. the rest, as they say, is in the video. :)

the song is of course, "Sunshine of your love" by Cream.
